So if I was to pick a sealant instead of a wax, what would be a good choice?? And what about the panel wipe and black finishing pad etc?? Cheers

I wouldnt use menzerna 400 on a black finishing pad. Fg400 is a aggressive polish/compound. I am a fan of the Menzerna range. My choice would be final finish 3000 or super finish 3800 followed by powerlock sealant.

The two best results I had on my Polo cane from FK1000P and Fusso Light. However I used Dodo Juice light fantastic on my partner's 500 and it didn't come up that well. White is a pain!

Could you upload an image of your paint that best captures any texture in the finish. i.e orange peel?

If you think you need a 3rd polish stage you can do worse than SRP by DA on a finishing pad

But I agree with Fentum and others - it could be down to orange peel

For me on white my best combination for reflectivity after a light machine polish is

BH cleanser polish then
Dodo Juice Light Fantastic (soft) or Autoglym EGP.

I'm not a professional, just my own vehicles I want to detail.

So things I have bought recently:

Auto smart scratch guard buckets x 2
Meguires microfibre wash mitt
DAS-6 V2
Meguiars #105 and #205
Chemical guys orange and white
Autoglym tar remover, magma, claybar, detailing spray.

I have gone through all the processes:

Rinse
Prewash
Rinse
Two bucket wash
Rinse
Tar remover
Rinse
Magma
Rinse
Claybar
Dry
Machine polish with #105 and orange, wipe down then #205 and white.

The car is smooth to touch but not like glass and although I can see myself in it, it's not like my older white car that was litterally like a mirror and all I used on that was super resign polish.

Car is a 63 reg Vauxhall Astra

Am I missing a step here? I drove down the road and it now feels like I've done nothing to it!

Astra J has soft to medium paint.

Did you need to resort to M105's level of cut? How bad were the defects?

I find paint on the Astra J very easy to mar, if the marring isn't removed completely it would affect the gloss level.
