Can i suggest again that you give the AutoGlym kit a go. It has all stages of wet and dry paper and a final cutting compound and pad to use which when i used it finished off my lights beautifully and left no swirls.

If you're anywhere near Rugby you're welcome to borrow my kit to see if it works for you.

Can you post up some pics so we can see the difference you've made already and the swirls you're talking about?
I did mine recently using a similar combination as you. Mine were very heavily damaged and I used 800, 1200, 2000 by hand, 3000 by da, then HD Heavy Cut on a mf pad, Menz PF2500 on a hard orange Scholl pad, Rupes Keramik on a blue medium Scholl pad then finally sealed with Werkstat Prime on a AF soft yellow pad. Potentially people may say that's overkill for the amount of steps but I'm more than happy with the result and have an absolutely flawless finish even under the sun gun or metal halide light. DA was a DAS6 Pro with the 3in backing plate, rather than a drill like you. Took around 5 hours in total to do both headlights (and I split them in half rather than doing the whole thing in one go).

Where are you based? Happy to lend you my DA with smaller backing plate if you're anywhere close to Maidstone mate.

I'll happily put some pics up to show you, once I've worked out how to do it!!
Am in Aldershot, Hants. A bit far from you but thanks for the kind offer.
