I was told to do six sections passes at speed 4 with the compound at 15lbs of arm pressure. I did that and the spots removed. However my paint looked cloudy in some spots.

I then changed pads and started to polish it with Meguiars Ultimate polish at speed 4 and no matter what I do, the polish leaves swirls marks!!!

Any suggestions before I throw gas on my car, set it on fire and dance in a circle?
do you mean swirls are still leftover or that the polish creates the swirls?
