    Picked up this sign locally at the end of the year. It was advertised locally at what I feel was average retail for a good shape version of this sign. I was silently keeping an eye on it when the seller cut his price in half and that's when I contacted him and said I would give him what he wanted.

    When I looked at it in person it was in real nice shape but there was a thin, grimy layer of residue on it that I was sure would come off but not positive. I first washed it with soap and water and it did nothing. Then I went to the compound. Signs of this period have proved to have good paint on them so I have kind of learned the limitations of rubbing on them. It took a good solid day off and on polishing by hand to get it done. The pics show the middle progress. Small but huge difference.

      Very nice sign:) what did you clean it with?
    6. robeo4 robeo4, 9 years ago
      Just standard automotive rubbing compound. 3m. They usually are done in steps but I stick with the finer solution as close to a finishing compound as possible. The grittier compounds will actually add swirl and light scratch marks if used. Use a white rag and watch out for color.
