Quick polishing order question

So i have polished my car and my fathers car. I used Adams SHR then FMP then the sealant, and after 24 hours followed up with Meguires carnuba. Im about to tackled the back of our 37 ft motorhome which is annilihated with scratches. (i was young, stupid, and uneducated and used a water blade on the back before even washing it once 6 years ago. so i ordered up some Severe SHR.

Main Question:

When using severe swirl and haze remover, does it have to be followed up with Regular shr? Or can i jump right to polishing? Thanks guys.

You can pull that off with good technique if the clear is soft enough so try it and see. You will need to work the SSHR until the swirls are almost completely gone then move to FMP. If the FMP doesnt clean everything up then you will have to step back up to SHR, then finish with FMP.

Tackling a 37 foot motor home with a PC? You're crazy! Lol

I would just step it down in order. Do a three step polish. I think you'll end up saving time in the long run, instead of going SSHR, fmp, then realizing you have to go back to SHR and then FMP again.

Give it a little tappy tap

The back is all i want to hit with the SSHR. Its by far the worst. I hit the front already, and the shine is out of control.

This. Especially if they're deeper scratches. Btw, the Flex might be a quicker tool for this job but if the PC is you're only choice, be patience.
