My hood

My hood is dull in color, I don't know why, but when I rub it real hard I see a black under a residue layer of dullness. I suck at explaining myself but could a good buff fix this issue?

Re: My hood

I just bought an 01 GT and the whole car had scratches and haze. After some review, I tried Meguire's Ultimate Compound. The car turned out great. I have a pic of the hood with the haze you described and an after picture. The gloss pic was BEFORE I put a coat of wax on it. BTW, those are clouds reflecting in the hood after I was done. I didn't have to use a polisher either, just a little muscle.

What do you do?
The clay bar comes in a kit that you can pick up at any auto parts store it comes with everything you need, basically you spray on the spray they give you and u take the clay bar and in a sanding motion start to clean you're paint. The clay traps in the contaminets in the paint and lifts them out bringing the paint back to life. I would then use the polishing compound followed by a good wax

Re: My hood

Some hints with the clay bar...don't go in circles like you would with wax...just side to side. Keep spraying to keep the car wet. You will feel the grit in the clay you get off the car. You can also put the bar in a bucket of warm water to get pliable because it is hard when you first buy. Go to Youtube for some video instruction, but it is hard to see the results they get.
