Chase the swirls or live with them?

Ok, on a daily driver with light swirls would you

1, use a medium cut polish that finishes down well such as Ultimate Compound.

2, use a 2 step combination?

3, use a finishing polish to add gloss and then use something like BH cleanser polish?

Car is MK7 Golf and I only have one day spare to do it

Thanks

This is interesting and you'll get different answers, so I'll start being I'm the first to answer on this thread. I'd go for number three but I'd use a cleanser polish first.

I'm assuming by machine?

Glare Micro Cut then finish with Professional Polish + is my first choice.

If the swirls are a bit more than "light" then you could add in Glare Spider.

Glare products are simply layered one on top of another so there's no need to panel wipe.

Top off with the wax of your choice if you feel like it. Probably no need .

If you fancy something a bit more "traditional" then Scholl S20 should deal with light swirls probably on a purple Scholl spider pad (can go up to a Blue pad if needed).

Should do that quite easily in a day.

Good luck.

Andy.

If doing option 3 I would use cleanser fluid first after decontamination and claying as I will like to use a finishing polish by machine on the cleanest possible paint, the cleanser polish after would be to mask what is left behind, make sense?

Now you have elaborated more then yes, it would make sense.

If its light swirls use R222 gloss enhancing paintwork cleaner which you can layer, then top with wax.
Very good stuff

I have exactly the same , some light swirls. I will be using britemax blackmax with a finishing pad . This combo has done the job before .
I don’t see the point of doing a 2 stage with heavy cutting for light damage

Remove the worst of the swirls and live with the rest.

I have plans for mine that are basically, remove the worst of the swirls, use a glaze topped with a wax, then maintain as best as i can.

Option 2 for me - 2 step on a Golf is easily doable in a day.

Assuming you are using a machine of course.

cheers

I would remove the light swirls but wouldn't worry about anything deeper, leaving plenty of clear coat for several more goes in the future.

Daily drivers are going to get dinged up at the supermarket so not much point going for 100%.
