    Can I get close to a Merlin Shot ?

    Can I get close to a Merlin Shot ? I am new to Polishing cars. I use a Griots DA polisher and their products. I am not restricting my self to Griots it is just where I thought I would start. I have washed, clayed, used Griots Correcting- Orange Pad, Perfecting Cream-Orange Pad and Sealant-Red Pad. Griots is a great product with five star customer service.I would recommend them to anyone,,,,I get compliments on my car often,,, I want to have/learn the ability to take the shine to the next level. I want to get CLOSE to a Merlin shot,,, I believe there is a lot of technique needed to get to a Merlin shot,,,and it will take me time and experience to get that. Should I keep using the same products and just improve on my technique ? Do I need to try a different product ? Does anyone have any recommendations/suggestions ? Thank you for any help.

    Polishing is the easy part, finding the right palm tree—now that takes talent! Seriously you have good products and a good machine so with a little practice you can make anything shine like Merlin. Just take your time and enjoy the process.

    Ron, I`m a bit surprised you didn`t follow up with the "buy your own tree" thread for those Merlins. hehe. I forget what it`s called. Maybe, "you too can have your own Merlin shots"

    Ron`s are not reflections. He actually has them growing on the car. I`ve seen where he lets crowds of people walk all over it to. What kind of detailer is that?
