what about FG body

I have a glass 41 willys that is gloss black gel coat. It is very straight but has a bit of primer on some edges that I would like to remove so I can tool around looking like a "black Beauty"

so far I have tried at least 8 rubbing compounds but they for the most part are just coarse polishes. I tried lacquer thinner but it also slightly etches the glass jell coat or at least dulls it. I also have tried using a power buffer with coumpound. Unfortunately some of the primer is where the buffer can even get close.

While the glass has been oven cured and 'southern sun" cured it still is not as hard as you might think. Some of the compounds will polish the glass but don't really get after the primer. As far as I know the primer is probably Rustoleum or possibly a good auto primer.

I think what I really need is some stronger or coarser rubbing compound. The bar sounds like it would be great finish restorer for this glass.

anyone???

Clay is a great product and will remove overspray, rail dust, etc. with little effort. Unfortunately since the product is relatively new the patent creates for a pricier product, but it is 100% worth it. There are some bars which are more aggressive but they all work the same way, just make sure you lube it enough (you want to feel it grab just enough) and keep checking and folding it because the last thing you want to do is mar your finish with an imbedded particle!

Have you tried Rod & Custom? Sometimes (more than likely) it will remove overspray and it has no abrasives in it to scratch the finish. Plus it gives a great shine. That is what I use.
