I have been doing a lot of research for my new car, etc and I have my Glaze, Topper, Trim, etc...I know exactly what I am going to work with except for the polish, pads for PC and or hand application.

What are some of the less abrasive polishes considering this is a new car and the paint should not be in terrible condition and what pads would you use on it if using a PC and what pad if applying bu hand. Also, let me know what can be applied by hand and what cant.


What are some of the more abrasive polishes i can use ONLY if the less abrasive stuff above does not work.

After polishing I am planning on using Klasse AIO, SG and topping with Pinnacle or S100.

I have posted like 100 times trying to figure out what to do and the only thing really confusing me is the polishing steps. After that I am fine, claying I am fine, etc...

thanks so much guys

Good choice with the Klasse and S100! I use it on many of my customers' cars and it really is a great combo. If you have moderate swirling Meguiars DACP is a great product. If you have mild swirling then Meguiars Swirl Free #82 (or #9 works nice) polish might be all you need.

I'm gradually switching over more and more to the 1Z line of polishes. VERY easy to use.

Other choices that've worked well for me are 3M's PI-III stuff. The RC (pn 05933) is a LOT milder than it sounds and it works well by hand or machine. For something milder, the MG (pn 05937) is very good.

And of course some people swear by the Menzerna polishes.
