It's not for everyone but then neither is the Marine Corps, where I learned my teaching style. If you can take it on the chin, you will learn a ton and be a better detailer for it.
Well I done some time in the British Army with the Parachute Regiment so I'm used to that type of teaching style and works well for me.

You've done a stunning job mate. Think yourself lucky, you've just been given advice from a master.

Remember though, it's not always about perfection on your own car, you might have to polish it again at some point.

Don't ignore some glazes that contain light fillers after polishing. They may help preserve your paint.

Yes I've been thinking, the scratches which are left are barely visible and as a novice perhaps It's a good idea to use some glazes to get me that wet finish I'm after.

I've been looking at Poorboys Black hole, can you recommend any others?

Prima Amigo glaze is suppose to be very good and even better when applied with a DA

Amino is by far the slickest glaze on the market. It doesn't fill a lot imo. 50cal's cover up seems very good from initial testing.

Amino definitely darkens the paint as proven on DW. I think it's best suited to cars that have been machine polished opposed to glazes like backhoe, EZ creme glaze etc which suited swirled cars.
