Talking A 17 year old, A PC and some Adam's Polishes

Well this goes to show that just about ANYBODY can have perfect paint using some Adam's Polishes and some help from the Junkman's tutorials I've gotta admit i was REALLY nervous going at my paint with any type of machine but the Junkman was right, it really is almost IMPOSSIBLE to mess up with the PC. Thanks Adams! I'm really enjoying that Adam's Shine! Before:

Started with Adam's Swirl and Haze remover (Orange polish) and followed up with some Adam's fine Machine polish (white polish) and then a layer of Meguiars ultimate liquid wax. I used the Junkman's technique on my car speed setting of 5 for the PC in a cross-hatch pattern and I moved very slow!

A 17 year old that cares about his car I'm impressed that you were that patient polishing that car! I know I wasn't patient enough when I was 17 to do such a task.

Very nice
