I am doing a light detail on this 2005 yellow VW Beetle convt. The entire car has orange dots all over. I clayed the entire car, standard blue clay barely removed the contamination, as the owner said the car was waxed maybe once since they bought it new in 2005; ended up using RED Claymagic bar. Now I am in the polishing phase. I have a Griots 6" DA and a Makita 9227. I tried the DA with M105 and a yellow Uber 5.5" foam pad and it's not cutting like I thought it would...I have never had this combo not work easily. Has anyone had any experience with these Beetles and the clear coat? I don't think I need to use my Rotary and a wool pad as the cars paint isn't oxidized or anything and the condition I am polishing is simple car wash scratches and the results of using the RED Claybar. One more question on these cars. There is chrome-like trim around the base of the windows and convt top. I don't know if this trim is clearcoated, chrome, or polished aluminum...it looks oxidized and I'd like to make it bright again...anyone do this?
