Finish looks great, but call me cynical, If you've ruined the pads in such a short time and your saying you had to apply more pressure on the spoiler, I'm thinking you need a slightly denser cutting pad and a stronger compound to begin with, you really shouldn't need to apply much more pressure than the weight of the machine it self.

I may be wrong but that's my understanding.

Orange pad is fine, the foam on the white pad is tearing slightly. Will pop a picture up later, not sure if I had the machine running to fast as well? Start off on 1 to spread the Polish around area working, increase to 3 - 4 for a few minutes, then to 6 over the area, back down to 3..... that's what I read somewhere, but on Sunday I read not to go any faster than setting 4?

Minefield of info out there

You do need help if you have bought a roatary and not sure how to use it, post in the help section or the machine polishing section and am sure we can help post some pictures up to show what you want to sort out.

Well done fella, nice outcome the paint looks great.
You can live with the orange peel it's not that noticeable now so enjoy the car, removing it from a whole car is just too much hard work even by machine (wh8ch I don't recommend) you orange peel would need at least 1500-2000 cause 3000 won't even scratch it.

I am happy for you f8xing your own paint and yet getting great results too! Keep it that way and enjoy it of course
