I've used Ultimate Compound with a rotary (don't use a DA as have a problem with my arm and the vibrations hurt like hell) on many occasions (at least once or twice a month over the last few years). It works fine - in fact on some paints its a life saver.

Hi mate. I sorted my Brother's '04 E-class with s3 gold on a cutting pad, and refined with some 205 on a polishing pad. Same colour as well. Looks a treat when sorted. This was with a DAS 6 Pro. Best of luck my friend.

S3 is heavy cut. Though if worked well it can finish down lovely on its own. 205 is a kind of all-rounder, which can be used as a finishing polish or stand-alone product for moderate blemishes. It leaves a stunning finish. 105 is heavy duty stuff, and is generally used in tandem with 205. If you really want to ramp up the clarity, try Menzerna super or final finish on a soft pad.

2) its actually the "mega tech wax" thats not being buffed properly and leaving product hologramming.



My recommendation would be to buy some quality microfibres, a better compound and try the orange hex pad you have. DONT use the rotary machine

If you find the orange pad works better, buy some more and then refine with the black pad and a quality finishing polish


Its not a DA that i used its an angle polisher? I always used it on single stage paint with no problem?
