    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.

      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.
