Oxidation of car paint

Hi,

Has anyone had success polishing out oxidation on car paint? If so, can you please recommend a product?

I have a 15 year old black Honda.



Thanks.

Most people would immediately recomend a rubbing compound like Megs Ultimate compound but I've seen guys ruin black paint using it the wrong way.

I like this guy's approach.

Was gonna recommend Megs 80 glaze or XMT 360 which he uses after with a machine.

But only after the real star Megs #7 Mirror glaze is used by hand, not to abrade, but condition and bring back the paint first.

Optimum also has some good products with the hyper stuff being aggressive and popular but it might be best to start with a polish first.

As a professional detailer I use Malco tru-polish. And if you want to really bring the paint out, use Malco super duty compound then the tru polish. Then a wax and you'll be very amazed

Oxidized paint typically comes back shortly after polishing.

A moderate compound will take it out. I use sonax cutmax.

I've heard Malco can do miracles with a rotary.

Lots of cutting polish for OP to choose from including uno from HD, Menzerna etc as well.
