Someone mentioned to me it looks like my towel caused that effect, by the side to direction the holograms are. Is that possible? I was using a soft clean MF towel. Either way I'm not messing with it anymore.

Where did you buy the towel? Did you wash it with powder soap? Hot dry it? The only real way to test if it's scratching your paint is to get a new CD and use the towel to rub the crap out of the face of it and then look at in sunlight to see if there are any small scratches. If so, it's the towel. Or at least some of it is.

just a regular mf towel from autozone, washed with other mf towels, low heat, and hand dried. I did recently pick up some microfiber madness towels, but have not used them yet.

Damn this post makes me want to reconsider buying a PC for Xmas!! If I were to do that with my car, I would have a shit fit for sure.

I think I can live with my micro scratches now.

Man that really got away from you. So sorry it turned out like that.

Take it to a pro and stick to products applied by hand from now on. Go with some Adams products use the steps and stick to their script...
