Just happened to have it on my shelf and said why not and with a little elbow grease and about 10 min work on and done. Surprised a friend and myself that it worked so well. Use it on the paint as well for light scratches. Can be bought at most automotive paint supplier but cheaper here.

Good posting!
Thanks!

Hey Cheeser, My Dad has some 3M "Fine Cut" Rubbing Compound on the shelf in his basement. I personally don't know what the difference is, but figured I'd throw it out there. What do ya think?

...All you see from me are Dust & Taillights...

No opinion other than try it. Worked for me. Up to you though.
