Default 2011 Subaru STI Minor Correction Detail + Aquartz

Hi guys

I have a 2011 STI in for Minor correction + Aquartz. This Subaru was the most challenging paint I ever dealt with, the clearcoat just sucks whatever polish I lay on it. I used Menz Powerfinish, superfinish, and AF Rejuvenate, but none of them worked. After 2 hrs of testing, I found baby oil does the trick with Menz powerfinish and Uber green polishing pad. This was not a full paint correction, but the owner really wanted something to aid his washing, so he chose to have Aquartz applied.

anyway I made a video, pictures will come later..




Thanks for looking!!
Any questions or comments are welcome!!

When I'm using the polishes, after several section passes. Let the paint cool down, and went to remove the residual. I notice hazing and patches of polish very stubborn to remove.
