I used this on my car (black paint) the other day to try and remove some faint scratches (which it didn’t). About a week or so later I power hosed the car down and noticed that you can see where I used g3 (2 or 3 areas where I rubbed it to try and remove the scratches) and this has made the paint look faint/dull (looks similar to finger print smudges on a shiny surface) on the areas I used it on.

I finished cleaning it, lite polish and wax. It had gone. I was pleased. But today they are back? How do I get rid or it? Polish a little more firmly in that area?

You'll need to polish with a less agreessive /finer finsihjng polish to get rid of the scratches made from the G2 g3

Than make sure you use a proper wax to finish it off. Otherwise it will have the exact same effect.

Well after some rubbing with scratch x and ultimate polish it seems that they have gone. Touch wood.

Unfortunately due to the heat of the car being black (absorbs heat) I now have a blister from the rubbing. lol.

On a side note did I use the g3 incorrectly, how do you use g3 or is this just the affect of the g3 in general?

G3 is for colour correction almost as aggressive as t-cut, actually no it is way more gentle than that...

So you didn't do anything wrong you just had to add wax.

I polished and waxed it 2 weeks ago when I originally spotted it. Thought it had gone, then spotted today as the sun was shining at it.

Hopefully a little more aggressive polishing has sorted it now


Cheers
