    I just changed the cover on my left rear view mirror and thus had to
    repaint it. I bought a set of spraycans from my Pug-dealer, vert mayerling
    it is called, a metallic green.
    Now I resprayed it with four or five coatings of green and one or two clear
    ones. Same with a spot where I filled a rust hole.

    Now the color is really flat, not shiny like the rest of the car. Should I
    polish it and how do I do that or how do I get it to shine?

    Thx for any help,

    give it a T cut. carefull though or you'll go through the paint.

    Use it sparingly and wax it, then buff like you've never buffed before :D

    I'll try that (T Cut, not going through the paint). What is that stuff in
    case they don't have it here? I live on the continent...
    I'll see...
    Uhm... :-/
    It is visible, kinda cloudy. I thought that would go away with it being
