Adams swirl and haze

I just got done with the swirl and haze on my car. I ran out of time for the night. It says to leave the reisdue on the car and go over it with fine machine polish. I was wondering can i remove the residue now and just use the fine machine polish by its self? Thanks in advance.

This is another thing I strongly disagree with Adam's policy on. They tell you to leave previous polishes on the paint which is A) Just lazy, and B) Counterproductive. Actually, I'm not sure if they tell you TO leave them on, or if they just say you CAN leave them on, but in any case...

How can you possibly know if you've achieved correction with all that gunk on the paint? You should ALWAYS wipe residue between polishing steps, IMO. That way you can inspect the paint and hit it with another pass if needed before going to your finishing polish. You're not going to correct with FMP something that SHR left behind.

1. Compound, wipe off
2. IPA wipe to remove any possible oils that may fill or mask swirls
3. If it's good, polish. If not, go back to step 1.
4. IPA wipe again, inspect. Good, proceed to sealant. Not, repeat step 3

Yes, it'll take you an extra minute per panel. But getting all done with the car and realizing you didn't get all the swirls costs you a whole day.

When you IPA it should you dilute it or straight out of the bottle?

Dilute depending on the concentration of the IPA. A 10-20% solution will work.

I will allow you to demonstrate this process on every single panel on my Z until you are satisfied that we have learned how to do it right...... When your back in the midwest give me a ring.

Definitely agree.

I spent 4 hours working a car with just the swirl and haze remover product. It was helpful to wipe away the access and check the work to see if another application was necessary. I also think wiping away greatly helps the next level of polish finish more consistently.
