    help!

    right here we go

    tongiht i started cleaning my car etc. i had just began to polish it and had put T-cut on. i went all the way to the bonnet rubbing the t cut onto the car. when i went back to the rear wing to rub it off it was extremely difficult to rub off. its left my car in a state and im very upset. has anyone done this themselves(or is nobody stupid enough like me)
    if so is there anyway that i can get rid of it because no matter how much i try and rub it in it isnt budging.

    just go over it with another polish, megs step 1 will be ideal.

    Dunsy, just go over it again with T-cut but don't leave it too long and buff it like a madman, it will be fine. Did exactly the same thing with mine a couple of weeks ago.

    ach it happens to us all Dunsy.

    Step 1. Take said t-cut bottle
    Step 2. Chuck it back to the era where this was suitable to use
    Step 3. Dont use it again.

    This is because T-cut is not kind enough for clear coats and it is likened to liquid sandpaper as it is very harsh. Just put some on your hand and feel that grit.

    Try washing with fairy liquid to strip the paint, make sure you rinse every bit of soap, very important.

    Now you have a clean canvas so to speak. Try Meguiars Crystal range, 1,2 and 3. This should really clean the car up. If you want it perfect buy quick clay too, as this is neccesary to get an even better finish.

    Once your finished with it all, sit back and look at how much better your finish is.
