Do you just treat the b pillars like the paint when you polish?

I see in the tools list that you only used the PC but it appears there was another buffer used in one of the pics. A few questions.... So did you use another buffer or just the PC? How do you get the hard areas that are not flat to come out close to perfection? How many hours did you spend on paint correction? I have used the PC numerous times as well as the flex DA and cannot get the results that I have seen in your work. I have used countless products and probably close to 50 vehicles now. Your input would be deeply appreciated as I would love to master the art of paint correction. I may just need to spend more time on it but the amount of hours im already putting in should be sufficient to complete the job.
