    Laquer & T-cut

    Hey Guys/Gal's hope everyone had a great x-mas and new years!!!

    Unfortunately my car has taken a battering with stone chips to all the front panel's. My Astra is metallic black (Holden call it Sapphire Black).

    I have read the forum posting about scratches and stone chips, but need some more info:

    3. remove all the dirt from sanding, and T-cut the affected area for ages untill smooth again. A G3 rubbing compound can also be used, but take great care as it's very abrasive and you don't want to remove very much paint.
    What doe's T-cut exactly mean?

    And what type of Laquer should I use?

    Any help would be great appreciated

    T cut is a cutting compound that takes away the dead paint and fine layers, of paint. This brings up the fresh paint. Polishes like auto glym super resin polish has cutting agent in but isnt as abbrasive as T Cut as this isnt a polish.
    Lots of companys sell there version of T cut, but is usally sold under names like paint restorer, safe cut ect.

    and normal clear laquer would be sufficent.
