Default Great Buffing Compound - Farecla G3

Hi Guys
Maybe you all know about this buffing compound already but it was new to me & works an absolute treat.

It's a "Made In England" polish called Farecla G3. I found out about it from an automotive painter in Perth who does all our car touch up & detailing where I work. He is actually a Kiwi & convinced his boss in Perth to try it & the boss is now "sold" on it.

I used it on my '59 TBird to get rid of some scratches & rub marks that were made from container strapping when the car travelled from LA to Perth Western Australia. Brilliant!!!!

There is an instruction video on Youtube which I followed.
(Just type "Farecla G3 Buffing Video" in Google).

I used an orbital buff & it worked great.
The secret is to only use a very small amount of compound & plenty of water.
I used a spray bottle of water & wet the buffing pad & the area to be buffed. (area about 1/4 of the TBird hood each application). Use only an amount of compound about the size of your thumb nail & apply directly on the painted surface. With the buff turned off, use the buff wheel to spread the compond over the area to be buffed. Then turn on the buff & be amazed.
Give the surface a misty spray of water about every 30 seconds until buffing is complete.
Wipe off with a clean micro fibre cloth or cheese cloth.

The compound isn't cheap (I paid Au$93.00 trade price for a litre bottle) but will last a long time because you use such a small amount per application.

I have done both my '59 Tbird & '68 Mustang complete & used about 1/4 of the compound so working it out that way, I've done two cars for less than $25 in total. BARGAIN!!

Cheers Guys
Lex
