Re: small steel residue left rust on hood..how2remove?
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.
