    Name your top three finishing/jeweling polishes.

    1. Menzerna Super Finish Plus (SF-3800). Almost no dusting and great shine

    2. CarPro Reflect. Super easy wipe on/ wipe off and great shine.

    3. Rupes Diamond Ultra Shine. I think temp/humidity affects performance sometimes

    Would like to give Scholl Concept S40 a try. Have read only great things about its finish.

    Re: Name your top three finishing/jeweling polishes.

    This question about jeweling (or more correctly, "burnishing", as Accumulator points out) stems from a discussion from January of 2010 by Autopian All-Star, Barry Theal and his conversation with another All-Star, Kevin Brown. Some may consider it "than was then, this is now", but it is still interesting (AKA relevant) information.
    Some conversation between Kevin Brown and Barry Theal

    I asked the question in a thread from August of 2016 if anyone does jeweling anymore and what modern techniques they use to do this. https://www.autopia.org/forums/machi...tml?highlight=
    No one replied, leaving me to think no one does this and/or no one cares to talk about this "extra" step in correction polishing.
    (Or my personal hygiene was inadequate and no one wanted to associate with me that day!)

    Maybe it`s all just semantics but I don`t really consider it jeweling/burnishing but rather just trying to eek out a bit more gloss with the finest polish I can find that actually produces a noticeable effect after using a more `standard` polish like M205 and the like. Too be honest, I could never really notice much of a difference using Menzerna PO85RD/3800. S40 works best for me on soft paint, Angelwax Rdemption had the most cut while leaving a more refined finish and Rupes Diamond seems to work best on softer paints as well.

    All in the opinion of someone who still has to work somewhat less than efficiently to achieve desired results.

    Re: Name your top three finishing/jeweling polishes.

    Leaving aside all my usual comments about burnishing...the Finish Polishes I use give me a nicer final finish than M205, but I don`t think either of my choices are made any more:

    -HD Polish
    -1Z Hi-Gloss

    Both of those improve upon M205 for me. Whether what I`m doing qualifies as burnishing or not, I dunno...same boat as BudgetPlan1 I guess.

    I suppose if I used M205 to refine what my compounds leave, and then follow that with one of the above, that`d be burnishing in the conventional sense. But hey, for the most part, I`m not polishing *at all* any more.

    Re: Name your top three finishing/jeweling polishes.

    I havenít polished my own vehicles in ten years so Iím in the same boat as Accumulator. I only had to spot polish one time and M101 by hand worked out well.
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    Re: Name your top three finishing/jeweling polishes.

    3800
    Reflect
    Diamond

    Probably in that order. Saying that, I normally just use Essence after compounding and then coat. I understand the abrasives in Reflect are the same as in Essence. Essence has made me lazy. The results are just so good.

    Ultrafina
    Menz 3800
    Reflect.

    Not in any order. Depends on how the paint reacts...

    Re: Name your top three finishing/jeweling polishes.

    From this small sample size it seems like so far Menz 3800, CarPro Reflect, and Scholl S40 are at the top with Rupes Diamond still in there

    Re: Name your top three finishing/jeweling polishes.

    A good question would be what pad, machine, speed for finishing/jeweling. Probably get some way different ideas. Jeweling is an interesting topic, but too time consuming to be practiced regularly.

    Still using my PO85RD. Love that stuff and still have enough to last me ten more years if it doesn`t dry up or go bad.

    Re: Name your top three finishing/jeweling polishes.

    IMO it`s an awfully fine line...and maybe just a matter of semantics...between "burnishing" and "Finish Polishing".

    If I go from M101 to HD Polish, it`s merely Finish Polishing. But if I do M101, then M205, and *then* HD Polish/[whatever] I bet many would say it`s Burnishing.

    MY definition of Burnishing/Jeweling = Polishing beyond the removal of visible imperfections to increase the gloss. M205 leaves my paints (micro)marring-free, but they don`t look as nice as they do when I finish with the HD/1Z. I`m "improving on perfection", so that`s burnishing. But what`s the *REAL* diff between that and just going straight from compound to final polish? No diff at all IMO.

    And yeah, I suppose that a(nother) final polishing after the HD with, say...PO85rd..might ramp it up in the eyes of a glossmeter, and maybe in the eyes of some other Detailer, but if I can`t see a diff I`m not gonna bother.

    I guess some might say I *do* burnish a few of my vehicles, as I follow the HD Polish with 1Z Pro Metallic Polish or their WaxPolishSoft (both discontinued AFAIK, at least in the US). Those do contain abrasives and they do ramp up the look...BUT since they contain LSP-stuff (synthetic waxes or so they said) I figure it`s more of a LSPing than anything else, and I figure the abrasives primarily help make it easy to buff off.
