Hey Phil....I got a tiny bit of gorrila glue on my new center arm rest yesterday and wanted to ask what you’d use to remove it? Did a bit of searching and nail polish remover came up but I’m weary of this on nappa leather.....TIA!

have you tried warm water yet?
if you do go with the nail polish remover make sure you don't go to aggressive and make sure you clean all of it off. try a hidden area.

What's the best way to deal with paint chips? Looking like mixed results from Dr. Colorchip. Should one do paint correction before or after getting paint chips fixed? Is there a specific method way to do paint correction (with DA polisher) on areas with paint chips?

I removed the glue with some dish soap and warm water to loosen it up then VERY carefully scraped it off with a sharp blade. The leather is LSB, thanks for the help Phil

Is a random orbital sander OK to use as a polisher? Assuming I use a polishing pad and compound, not sandpaper.

hey phil,

got some water spots (maybe 10 sq/in worth) that i need to compound out as they've etched the paint in that area. hard water removers, vinegar, menzerna SIP, etc all don't work.

what compound and pad would you recommend i use to get those last 4-5 spots out? this is on my infiniti which is thankfully not as hard of a clear coat as bmw from what i remember. would menzerna super heavy compound work?

fyi, using a griots garage DA

Microfiber cutting pad and M105 should get water marks out. Unless it is bird droppings, that requires light wet sanding (least aggressive 2000, then 1000 if it is badly etched).
