The first thing you need to know that "polishing" is the process "wax" is a finish protector.
If you have laid that perfect lacquer finish followed by your clearcoat you can begin the process of getting that shine.
I use micro mesh pads from 2400 to 12000. Before I use these I let the body totally cure..dehydrator for 24 hours or air 1 week.
Then I use 1200 grit 3M paper soaked in water with a drop of dawn in it I gently float the paper over the entire car 1 panel at a time
finishing with the roof and trunk. Now I blow dry it off and if it is all dull then I use the pads from 2400 to 12000. after this the body
should be verrry smooth. I now use Novus #2 followed by Meguires scratch X both applied on a damp cloth and then buffed
If you want to wax now you can..I have heard "the treatment" is the way to go.. good luck and let us see the result!
