Thought I'd post some pictures of the work I've gone with the DA today.
Mate came round with his new to him W reg Clio. Only paid £480 for it so need a lot of work. Couldn't see at night with his headlights, horrendous UV damage

As you can see, a ton of yellowing. Tapped off the area as usual


Started with wet sanding p2000 on the DA, 75mm discs. Then moved to p2500 and finally p3000
Mate caught me at it!

Finished with a 2 step refine and Polish using Auto Finesse Restore on an orange pad, followed by Auto Finesse Refine on a black polishing pad.


Sealed and protected using Polish Angel Centurion and then a top layer of Poor Boy's Natty's Blue Paste.

Before picture on the bottom, finished result on top.
Another day on someone else's car again though, my poor Vectra is being neglected
Again any comments, advice etc I'm open to the help!

Good work! Try Scholl S20 Black on yours for permanent swirl removal, no need for 1, 2 or 3 stage polishes imo.
