The bad news is that I'm struggling to get the scratches out. But apparently, after some research on this forum, I'm hardly the first person to have this problem.
I'm using the basic HF rotary polisher I've had for years. I'm using cheap foam pads, compound, polish, finish. I'm using M105, M205, and 7 Glaze. I am wet sanding with 1000, 1500, 2000 by hand using a small block. CC is Transtar 6861 that has was shot about 10 days ago.
As you can see from the photos, I'm getting fairly close to flat. As close as I'm going to take it given where I started. But the M105 isn't cutting the sanding scratches.
And from my research here, I need to order a wool pad and the M100. Correct? I'll reach out to the local paint shop in the morning, if they don't have it, I'll be waiting on Amazons new 5-7 day prime shipping.
