it's psm. Pretty much it just needs some keep up work. There are some minor swirls and scratches here and there, but the paint isn't beat too bad

This would be a great kit by hand or PC:

or this kit would be a bit more aggressive but you would still need a wax or sealant...

Add the correct pads and you should be all good to go...

And also I have these little like oxidation marks in my paint..The previous owner did not ever wash the car I dont think. It looks like bird crap, but does not wash off and the adams swirl and haze remover with a orange cutting pad did not touch it. do you have any ideas that I could use to get rid of this. I was looking at the menzerna intensive polish, but I am not sure.
thanks

You would have to go yellow pad with some Menzerna Power gloss compound then SIP then 106 or 85rd.

Jose,

I would use a mf towel for the ONR over the Shmitt.

We have the bucket /dolly/caddy kit with the seat cushion. We do not have creepers. As for plastic exterior trim pieces use Black Wow.

Take a look at this recent detail:

Let me know if you have more questions.

yes I do..So if I used the menzerna, could I use the adams swirl/haze remover and and the revive polish to restore the shine or is there something else you would recommend? Do I have to worry about damaging the paint using the menzerna, since it "cuts" more?
thanks

i have a 2007 obsidian black pearl impreza 2.5i. i noticed the other day that the "spider web" effect is pretty bad. i am attributing it to the bad subaru paint that i hear about. will that ever go away (or is there a way to remove/minimize it) or will i just have to keep it waxed all the time?

You should probably use a PC and polish the car out with Menzerna. This will correct your paint and remove all the imperfections.

Then keep up with the washes etc and you should be good. avoid automated car washes/hand car washes etc...basically do the work yourself.

thanks for the tip! i am glad to know there is hope. i only go to the auto washes if its a last ditch effort...not too much time to keep it up the way i'd like when you have to read case books all day but again thanks for the advice!
