Was your paint in need of some serious correction? Just asking because you stated that you used Intensive Polish with an orange and white pad. Did you mean to put Final Polish II with a white pad? That would make more sense and achieve a better gloss than what you said you did. Just asking to make sure.

You are 100% correct. I used Final polish II with the white pad.

you could achieve the same results with 3M...It comes down to the process and how you are actually working with the polish...I found that slowing down my passes and putting some pressure ontop of the machine helps A lot. If you are using a D/A then your passes have to be slower then with a buffer just for the fact that its not spining as fast so it needs more time to correct.

back to the OP the car looks great. How long did it take you start to finish?

It took a total of about 7 ours scattered over two days. Tough to get 7 hours straight to myself with a 2 year old running around.

I used dressing about 4 washes ago. I think it is black magic or something like that. OTC stuff.
