    Farecla g3 compound

    just bought myself a used bonnet but there was a couple of very light scratches on it, done it over a couple of times with the g3 by hand (havent got a polisher) and its nearly gone. quite impressed realy so going to give it another going over in the morning followed by a couple of coats of wax. 1 question is when applying i rubbed it all over with a damp cloth is that right? this is what it looks like now with and without g3

    That looks good mate .When ever I polish or compond I allways use a bit water with spray bottle to help with applying it.it stops any burning with The polisher

    I've found that you need to keep the G3 wet anyway otherwise it dries up too quickly....

    Great stuff, although not to be used ALL the time (fairly abrasive)
