Newbie request - First time DA polishing on 08 Seat Leon Infirni paint

Hi,

Firstly thanks for reading.

I`ve bought a DA, http://www.argos.co.uk/product/4645777, and intend to use it to remove swirls and small scratches from my 08 Seat Leon.

Already been taught how to use the DA but what i struggle on is pads and products combos

It`s a 08 seat leon with infirni paint. This is a black/purple metallic paint.

Any recommendations for pad and product combos would be greatly appreciated, along with any other tips of course. I do have a bottle of Prima Amigo Polymer Glaze so if i can use that then all the better.

Will be claying the panels before i start work.

Thanks

Russ

The Leon is a medium paint, I used CG hexloc pads green, white & black on my son's FR .
I used Megs UC & 205.
The majority of the work was with white pad & megs UC.
Finished with black pad & 205.
