Yellow Pad for Deeper Scratches?

Just finished paint correction on my Camaro. Used the PC with Adams orange pad + Swirl/Haze Remover and white pad + Fine Machine Polish.

All the swirls and finest of scratches came out. There are still a few scratches that did not come out. They are not too deep (can't catch finger nail on them) but I cannot get them out with the orange pad. Should I step down to the yellow pad and spot treat these?

Other ideas?

Green pad and severe swirl remover would be one i would use for more stubborn scratches.

Yellow or green are both more aggressive than the orange, either color is a good place to start. Yellow is more aggressive than the green.

I don't think you can get the yellow anymore either. I have one of the old yellow ones too. You can either step up the pad, or step up the compound to Severe Swirl and Haze, or step up both if you need to.
