3M Perfect-IT II polishing compound. Apply w/ a buffer using a dark foam pad. Then hand polish it.
*** Thats the shit there !!!!! You cut it first then you re-buff it again with the black pad , after that you run over it by hand with a super soft cloth --- he paint stores sell the baby diaper soft stuff.... I guess its as soft as you can get a cloth to be ....... i believe there is some other polishing cloths but , my PPG paint rep swears by the "Diapers"...............

Man i defiantley wouldnt use that extra cut compound on a black car. Especially if you are just trying to get swirls out. But everyone has their own opinion.

In my experience it has caused more scratches because it is so ruff and they will be hard to hide on black especially if u dont have a lot of experience buffing.

They have a new perfect it III compound out that is green. I would just use that. It takes out a lot of scratches and swirls marks at the same time. And then to make it perfect go back over it with the black finishing compund, then some hand glaze.

I use a soft rubber block and 2000 grit, keep a soft rubber squeegee handy it will tell you when you are through sanding.

This is the system I use. Others use different systems and have good results. I think it's what you get used to using. I like Meguiar's because it is paint shop safe, And does what I want it to do.


Start with Meguiar's #2 fine cut.
Then With Meguiar's #3 Machine Glaze.
Then Meguiar's Speed Glaze, By Hand several times.
Always use the correct foam pad for each step.

Here is a web page of a very good painter wet sanding and buffing
his fresh painted car. http://www.a2zautoforums.com/showthread.ph...06&page=5&pp=10 Look at the last few pages
