Holograms are Usually from someone who's used a rotary polisher without much experience of finishing down with one. It's pretty tricky if you haven't done some real practice! You get great cut for removing scratches etc but it's harder to get a perfect finish.

Usually, holograms are pretty easy to remove with a finishing polish, pad and a dual action polisher.

Thank you for the reply, I will get the dual action out over the weekend to see if I can remove.

With a rotary will it always give holograms?

As in leave the paint finish perfect with no holograms ect
When I used a rotary, the last few passes I reduced the speed right down and move it nice and slow.
