    with lighter color interiors, color transferring from pants, especially jeans is common. How can this be prevented and treated?

    It's something you will have to test with your cars paint. When we get a car in, we do a test spot to find out the least abrasive approach to achieve the desired results. Unfortunately that means buying multiple pads and compound/polishes as a consumer.

    question on working with what I have :

    my aunts Cayman is at my house.. it is black . the paint is dry, contaminated, has hard water stains on it... would like to fix it as best as possible with the products I have left over.

    adams clay bar. adams machine polish and finishing polish, wax and glaze.

    can I get somewhat of a correction out of the polishes by hand ? otherwise I saw griots garage 2 in 1 polish /wax that supposidly works good i would get that for like 17 bucks but not in a position to spend more than that since its not my car and it will continue to sit outside in NYC and get rained on and abused.

    You won't be able to get much of a correction out of the machine polish and/or finishing polish, especially by hand. You'll need something more abrasive like Adam's Paint Correcting Polish and Microfiber Cutting pad on a Porter Cable or Flex machine to make any kind of dent in the paint.

    Clay won't remove water stains or oxidation as that is chemical etching in the surface of the clear coat. As mentioned above, you need something more abrasive. Even a good polish may take it out with a machine application.
