Newbie here. I have redwood seed tannin stains on my 2 month old Toyota 2019 rav4. I would like to remove them, reseal/coat the paint then get on a solid maintenance program that I hope will help manage this ongoing environmental situation. Unfortunately I have no options as far as covered parking. I'm hoping getting going on the OPT program will make it easier to mitigate this deep stain/etching problem.
The stains don't wash off. I tested a small area with some meguires ultimate compound. Took a mild bit of effort by hand but eventually I worked some out. I own a Flex DA buffer and am looking for a recommended polish(assuming I don't need to go all the way to a compound) and pad to work these stains out. Ultimately I would like to finish off with the opti coat and continue with ONR+red sponge+opti-seal maintenance.
After some research here is my understanding of a lineup of product application/use for me. Please, any assistance/correction is very welcomed...
optimum paint prep
regular maintenance: ONR+opti-seal
Any recommends for pad/towels/applicators would be helpful too.
I have an image of the problem here...
Thanks a bunch!
