Want to hear a good one . I have been working on my CJ tub in the front yard for about a month now . Cutting and grinding like theres no tomorrow. For work transportation I drive a WHITE Honda Prelude. It is always parked near the tub . Well I got around to washing it the other day and I damn near freaked right out . The WHOLE entire car was covered with these little tiny rust specs. I thought my car was ruined. My son-in-law works for a body shop and he said to use some cutting compound and it came right out . I guess when the metal slivers landed on the car and with it getting damp in the morning it rusted the metal grindings.

Do you think this "cutting compound" will work on cement??!! I was driving to work one day last week and got splattered by a freshly filled cement truck. I didn't think much about it, took it to car wash. But now...... Black car.....little white spots!! Dam!! Makes me wish I would have gotten the truck's number, but as usual, I was running late. Now I'm kicking myself..... need to get car cleaned up........

Just looking for an answer.....

Cutting compound cuts through the clearcoat of the vehicle, getting the scratches, blemishes, and other "problems" out. Wax it afterwards with a high grade wax, I prefer "Liquid Glass". I learned this when <font color=blue>mxnhid</font color=blue> came up from Boston to build his cage. He borrowed my '95 Trooper and went looking for steel, one of the places had a large dog that scratched the crap out of the doors. Regular rubbing compound was able to take most of it out, and he recommended the cutting compound. I had bought an 8" automotive buffer at a lawn sale about 6 months ago for $3 and it was very handy. I plan on doing the whole Trooper it looks so nice.
