Detailing

Just finished sanding and buffing my chevelle now comes the cleanup part. What is the best stuff to use to clean the polishing residue off the seams and corners?

I normally when I wash the car, go over all seams, jamb and areas i want to remove compound buildup with soft bristled toothbrush and soap and water.

One thing is for sure, the sooner you get after it the better, after a couple days some of that stuff turns to glue!

Maybe someone with an auto detailing background has a trick, but I have found that sometimes "hair of the dog" works, in other words, you have to rub the compound residue off with rag and a dab of fine polish, like what is normally used to finish with a foam pad.

SPI waterborne wax and grease remover works well.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, but I just happen to try some lemon fresh pledge and it worked great. It removed the wax and didnt dull the paint like wax and grease remover does.

Guys! MY suggestion is to use a little APC (all purpose cleaner) and a micro fiber towel to remove compound residue. To get in the door edge it is as simple as wrapping a old credit card around the towel , mist with APC and slightly rub edge of fender or door etc.!
