05 Subaru STi CGM
A little history on the car,
This car has been sitting outside under a tree for the past 2 years, a lot of tree sap, hard water marks, oxidation and other contaminants are all over the paint. If you rub the paint it really feels like sand paper.
Now to the pics:

Oxidation on the CF Trunk.


Oxidation on rear vane.

Watermarks and other contaminants on the paint.




Engine bay needs a lot of work.

As you can see a lot of Iron was in bedded into the clear.

After car was rinsed I started to clay.
This was after a 1/4 of the hood.

Half of Trunk

Fender

Hood Scoop

It took 2 hours to get it clay barred.

Car was then rewashed to get all the clay lube off and here's what it looked like after.



As lucky as I am it started raining. So I'll do an ONR wash in the morning and I'll start compounding.

So started compounding the trunk.



I was testing out some different polishes


It wasn't perfect so I decided to use two different polishes and mix them.



Starting to look a lot better.



Two and a half hours later.



Decided to take a little break and checked out the motor. Yep Still boxer powered.

I used the Meg's Microfiber compounding pad, primed it with D300 compound and mixed it with M105.

Thanks everyone for comments.
All of compounding is complete, motor is going in next and I'll do the final polishing steps after we finish the swap. I'll keep this thread updated.

Here's a reflection shot. There's still a bit of compound residu on the door but you get the idea. No wax just paint.
