The Mothership Maintenance Log #129


Today was wash-n-wax day. Clearcoat failure is spreading on the roof and trunk. Added to that is tree sap that’s etching little blobs all over :???: I polished as much of the sap away on the roof and trunk, and then waxed the whole car.

I got a chance to polish the new clearcoat on the passenger door. It definitely turned out better than I expected :thumbs up Go back a few posts and compare to the “before” pictures if you like.




The painted section is still clearly visible, but blends in much better now, and I’m certainly happy with the result. This is now added to my toolbelt of car care processes, though next time I want to polish off any wax before adding the new clearcoat as well.
