Ok, first thing i have to say.....simply AMAZING.....but....

I'm reading what you did and I cant understand WTF you said?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Paint:
- m105 on orange pad , with pc (What's PC??? Politicaly Correct????? hehehe What's m105?) and what is this special orange pad from car heaven you are using???
-m205 on sonus white pad on pc (same as above????)
-paint was seal with klasse sg polychraged and wipe with optimum car wax. (sg = Sealant Glaze?)
Clear bra was polished with m205 and polish pad.


Reason I'm asking is i have a 3 year old car and it looks like picture 14-15 and i cant get that look out of the paint.

Can you help and explain in more detail?

First: if u plan do it yourself than start with less aggressive pad and compound/polish paste. if that doesn`t correct the defect u change from finish to polish , to cutting pad , i don`t advice wool if u never use a polish machine before.
back to the tread :
-m105 is meguiar`s 105 , ultra cut compound - ! very aggressive cutting compound
-orange pad is the cutting pad from lake country , remove defects , aggressive pad use in correction
-pc is a portal cable machine 7224 i think , or meguiar`s G110 - dual action polisher
-m205 is meguiar`s 205 , ultra finishing polish , polish was use on sonus white pad that is a polishing pad.
the car was seal with Klasse high gloss sealant glaze (gray bottle) , and was use wax polycharger in the mix with klasse.
u may need 1 cuting pad and 2 polish pads at least.one example: u start with polish pad and 105 , if doesnt` remove defects , than u go with cutting pad and 105 , if doesn`t remove then u may need rotary but i don`t advice. better try twice m105 and cutting pad.
hope this helps

Excellent informative thread, and using a black car was the ultimate choice.
