About This Article
Before you polish your car, wash it thoroughly so there is no dirt or debris on the vehicle that can leave swirls or scratches in the paint when you polish it. When the car is clean, wet a polishing pad with water and wring it out, then apply a moderate amount of polishing compound to the pad. Turn on the polishing wheel and press the pad into the paint of the vehicle. Maintain an even amount of pressure on the wheel as you move it back and forth along the panel you are working on. Once you can see the shiny paint, move on to the next area, rinsing the pad as necessary. Keep reading to learn how to choose the right pad and polishing compound for your car!
