Stone chips , rubbing compound ?
« on: 11 March 2019, 17:30 »
I’ve touched up stone chips on my white GTD but following this the paint is proud in some places. What running compound would be best to get them less noticeable and smoother?

I tend to use auto finesse when the paint is still wet. It leaves the paint in the chip but removes the excess. If the paint has dried something like meguiars ultimate compound applied with a microfibre applicator would probably be better.
