    Default P Plates

    The Mrs recently passed her test and got herself a red Skoda Fabia, i told her to put some P Plates on it so if she stalls people will have a bit of an understanding.

    Just been out to clean the car and took the plates off but the one up front seems to have burnt/faded (not sure how to descrribe it) into the bonnet.

    Main question is could it be cut and polished with a DA to get it back to normal. Im looking to properly polish the whole car anyway because its had a bit of a bad wash life (swirls everywhere).

    Remove the sticky residue with some solvent if it's the sticky ones. Then give it a polish.

    Give it a clay then polish. Can hand apply the polish if you just want to remove that defect.

    Got a recommendation for a hand polish?

    Ive used auto finesse triple on it today but i think its a bit much for a hand polish or too much for that product maybe

    Any polish can be done by hand mate. I alway use meguiars mirror glaze 205. Just keep working it til the defect is gone and the finish is brought back up.
