I wonder if anyone has experience of Fords Tonic Blue paintwork ?
When we collected our CMAX a few months ago I gave it a good wash and a good polish using Meg's NTX and it looked lovely..
Been noticing lately that the thing has lots of long scratches on it, most of which I haven't noticed before. They are long (6"plus) scratches in the lacquer, not the swirly type caused by polishing, and tend to be along the side of the car.
I had noticed a few scratches when we first got it which I lightly polished out using a mild T-Cut scratch remover and then polished afterwards again using Meg's NTX..
Now, have these scratches always been there all the time but not noticed due to different light conditions (I find that with Tonic, scratch there one day gone the next!!)..
Also, had major rain yesterday and funny how I noticed scratches today, maybe the Meg's polish masked them a tad, but the rain washed it all off ?
Rain does funny things to polish, as a small bit of polish that I failed to remove and couldn't be seen for the last few weeks sudenly jumped out at me after rain as it went all white (came off easily though).
I think that Tonic maybe a soft paint or something, anyone else wish to comment ?
