yes there are many polishes that will do the job, do you plan on picking up an orbital polisher?

Phil help please. All week been looking at the pc 7424 and products. Now after all that I read and am looking into zaino products which he told me not to use a buffer. I wanna take out like swirls left by towel drying from dealer. It's my daily drier but I do baby my car and paint so what do I do. Am I " wasting my time" as one guy said doing it by hand or can I get good results with zaino line. I don't care I just need to know before I buy them and see swirls when done. Also if not where do I turn. No one can give me a good answer without being steered by a product line or a open ended answer.
Thank you for your help

sure thing, I would say pick up an orbital polisher or you won't remove the swirls and light marring.

pick up some good polishes and use the Zaino products - like their sealant, car wash, detail spray etc.

Menzerna FG 400
Menzerna SF4000

that combo should work nicely.

as well I would consider picking up the Griot's Random Orbital Polisher a much nicer machine.

you can try the m205 first then if you need more work on the paint move to the m105 and finish with the m205.

And they all can be used on the layer process as seal then wax. And opinion do I need to seal and wax. Or seal two times or what. I read different approaches on this step.

Do you use buffer for those applications. Also what does the layering do. Deeper. Wetter look or not anything visable.

yes you can use a buffer for the above.
layering after the product cures maybe helpful.
for me I do 2 layers to ensure coverage.

The cars you present here always look excellent when finished and I look over the pix over and over and the list of products used as well,the only thing is and it may be just me,I'm sometimes left clueless about the order of your detail process and was wondering if you could make a video on a future detail minus the clearfilm,opti-coat steps and can't wait to try some of the new stuffMerryX-mas and Happy New year

sure thing what specific question do you have ....

its fairly basic as its outlined in the write up.

wash/prep the car ---> clay or autoscrub --> compound if needed --> polish ---> last step (wax, seal, or coat)

interior - vac - clean leather, condition leather, clean dash, glass

Thanks for getting back to me,I think what I'm missing is at what point your doing the IronX is that done after or before foam and then when do you use autoscrub after the wash and rinse and do you wash again after that?Go enjoy the holiday now and get back when you get a chance thx.
