However, I can attest to the meguiar's microfiber system. (look up the Kevin Brown method) this will give you a wealth of knowledge on the process of using a DA polisher at top performance

how long are you spending on your compounding step on each section?

Also, the wax has nothing to do with what you are seeing in your paint.
So I tried something a lil different..... Apparently the Meg Ultimate Compound is the same as 105.... I used that with the microfiber pad and had much better results! I ditched the Ultimate polish and went for a 2 step polish of Menzerna 2500 with the LC Orange pad, and then the Mezerna 4500 with the black pad. Let me say daaammmnnn! The Mezerna products wipe off so easy. Barely have to IPA wipe. I've been checking every stage with a Brinkmann dual xenon lamp. It allows me to see swirls and any streaks left over from any of the compounds. I will post pics when I'm done. Thanks for the help guys... I feel if I can conquer Jet Black, I can do almost anything lol!
