Sucks, I hate bi weeks, next week is big!

Here is some info in the abbreviations:

SHR:


FMP:


MSS:


Glaze:


You need a machine polisher to take full advantage of these.

Make sure you tape anything you don't want there product on or you'll have a hell of a time getting it off.

Is gonna be a elbow grease day. No porter cable yet. Is on the holiday list and birthday request list lol . I figure as long as I was clay wash swirl polish fine polish wax or seal. Think it's a need to use a swirl remover and then a fine polish or can I just go swirl to sealer wax?
