You, I can't even sleep! I dropped the roof to my Vette shortly after I got it. The next morning, the car was in the shop getting repaired to the tune of $1400. I didn't really have it to spare but who cares, I couldn't sleep!

He's trying to catch up with me. I've got another $400 worth of stuff coming in this week. I've got to keep him at bay!

Ok. Clayed and waxed the car. It actually looks better than before I used the compound. I know claying doesn't remove swirls but I'm thinking maybe it was more of a dried haze.

Definately not as bad as it could have been.

What wax did you use? Sounds like maybe a wax with some filling agents.

if you don't have too many swirls in your ride, can you still use the porter cable and swirl and haze remover just to get that shine goin on? I am currently using some mothers products including that power ball for paint that attaches to your cordless drill. Seems to look great, but after watching some of your videos Junkman I kinda want to buy the PC for my ride and retire my power ball.

You DEFINITELY want to get a PC! That Powerball is a breat product for your wheels but it is dangerous on your paint! The reason being is that a drill acts as a rotor polisher does in that it just spins. Unlike the PC (which is an orbital polisher). there is no forgiving with a drill. If you get that Powerball spinning in one spot long enough, you CAN burn the paint. Quit using that thing on your paint. I don't care if they do say that it is made for paint, a drill is NOT. Using a drill on paint is like using a Dremel tool to apply lotion to leather. Drills are NOT buffers.

You may not even need SHR if your swirls are not that bad. You may be able to fix them with FMP. However, you should get a kit that includes both just in case and you will also need to clay your car if it hasn't been properly clayed yet. Make sure you get a gallon of Detail Spray in your order.
