    That`s why more than correction once you have the perfect finish and lock it in with whatever LSP your maintenance is going to be the most important thing. I typically only like to compound my cars once and then it`s really proper wash methods and trying not to instill any defects in the paint. Every two or 3 years all I need is a light polishing step to enhance the paint and that`s it.

    I`d use Griot`s Correcting Cream. I`m just a weekend guy, but this is the best correction product I`ve tried.
    Easy, fast, and finishes great.

    I think its a great product. Very easy to use, pad sensitive, so pad choice can make it cut well or finish well. Little to no dusting, easy removal. I just used it on a scruffy Scion FRS and it worked beautifully. polished, up cleanly, used carpro eraser to remove residuals. then applied a several stage coating I had not used before, Nano Ceramic Protect, from Poland. Did super, and was easy to apply.

    I would start with that( griots correct cream), first, get your processes down to a good comfort level, and then experiment with other stuff. this hobizness is a blast.
