    Must be photo trickery to get something that shiny.

    Thank you for your kind words! It turned out clear and shiny.

    Did you check out the 1-minute long video (in the first post)?

    I took the the vid in 1080p 60 fps with an old POS iPhone 6.
    Check it out in 1080p w/sound. (use the YT gear bottom right)

    The Merlin "trickery" is to take the vid at high noon on a clear day.
    Please watch it until the end and let me know your thoughts.

    Fantastic job.
    I`ve just finished reading your review of Carpro Essence and wondering why you didn`t use Carpro?
    Have you moved on and have a new favourite?

    Thank you! It was a fun car to do.
    ___________

    I like Essence for a final polish before applying a coating.

    In short, it does three things I like.

    1) It contains a fine polish (Reflect) to add brilliance and gloss to the paint after correction.

    2) It contains a specialized filler to assist in visually "leveling" (remaining) minor swirls.
    (Although it is a filler (of sorts) I know they will stay visually gone after applying CQuartz.)

    3) It contains a bonding material that makes it unnecessary to strip (Eraser/IPA) polishes.
    (this bonding/primer ability #3 saves me time and I don`t have to worry about polish residue)

    Essence is a great polish to use when you are going to apply a ceramic coating.
    ___________

    Now for your second question...Have I moved on. Short answer No. I still like Essence and use it regularly.

    If there is anything I have learned in all the time I have spent polishing paint...it is that every car/paint is different.
    Another factor is the environment. It has a lot to do with pads and products that I`m using. (Temp, humidity etc.)

    My "test spot" is my determining factor for the particular paint I`m working on. I grab a pad/polish and try it.
    If it works then I may stop there. If not, I try another pad/product combo until until I find what works best on that paint.
    Sadly, another thing I have learned in all the time I have spent polishing paint...there is no "one size fits all" pad/polish combo.

    Thanks for asking...
