i'll consider PC in the future, but right now i'm fine with this. the front bumper and the rear bumper are the same! i dont know why but its totally fading and cracking. the read bumper is the worse, you can practally see white.
As for the clearcoat failure, thats pretty uncommon on the Lexuses, at least from what I've seen. I'm sure people on here can tell you different if they've detailed a lot of older ones. My guess would be perhaps the bumpers were repainted at some point.
A good body shop probably wouldn't charge you much to just respray those top bumper panels. They wouldnt have to respray the whole bumper, because the lower trim is a different color seperated by the chrome strip around the trimline. It would depend on whether or not they had to remove the bumper cover...Too Many ads? Becoming a member of Autopia has its privileges. Sign up here .

Where can I find the propper way to polish...in the e-book?
Also, should I use a foam terry, or a cloth terry to appply something like Megs. #7 (the polish). Im going to be doing everything by hand, caus the buffer I had isnt that good (cheap one from WalMart)

Hey Shyne, not bad for 12 year old paint. Perhaps another layer of S100 will do the trick.....Andrew2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, Brilliant Black

godofthunder, i used a foam applicator for #7 show car glaze. it really isnt a polish at all so a foam pad or terry dosent really matter i think.
andriver, yeah probably next week i'll give my car a wash again and then add another laywer of s100 and see how that goes.
you think i can put on some #26 wax and then top off a layer of s100? i like #26 slickness and look and adding s100 i think would make it reald deep

Try #7 by machine next time, I think then you'll get what your looking for. I would also use AIO instead of the premium paint cleaner. Sometimes, cars look better after a wash and QD.

so i just washed my car today and got some nice results. i saw alot of beading so that was good. i did my normal wash and then waxed with s100.
i still think that s100 lacks slickness and i can achive better slickness from #26. the s100 experinece is good for me so far i though i mightve been more moved by it.
