Hello. This is my first thread in this elite forum. I volunteered to help a schoolmate re-finish his "older" Precision Bass: some dings, dents, scratches, the usual stuff that shouldn't be too challenging. What's challenging is that he's been polishing it with car polish that's loaded with Silicone!!! Is there a low-tech solution to eradicating all traces of Silicone? My preferred method would be: to use some "magic bullet" that I can wipe the body to eliminate the spawn of modern tech (Silicone) Scuff sand with 200 grit Fill the minor imperfections Prime Colorcoat Clearcoat wait 2 weeks go through the buffing/polishing with 3M Finesse It II, etc. Is there such a magic bullet? Or should I sand to bare wood? Or is there a combo of steps that would be more efficient? Thanks gents!
