I'll ask one of the pro's about it (unless someone chimes in who knows the answer)
It could be a few things causing the hologramming.
Did you check it under the lights after wiping down with Eraser? It could simply be polishing oils.
You may have worked the area too quickly. 9 hours is very fast for a big car like that.
It could just be that the paint is so soft that it's marring when removing the polish.

It looks like it was worked to quickly/not long enough to me.though

Thanks, nearly all my jobs are under pretty tight time constraints. I was so looking forward to being able to work at a more reasonable pace and make sure things were just so but unfortunately that didn't work out. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I was able to get around the car, the last one I corrected was a land cruiser!

another hit of finishing polish would finish this off nicely

Those pics were taken after a quick wipe down with IPA cut 50:50 with water, maybe there were some oils left? Diamond gloss does feel very oily. both polishes were worked until almost clear. One thing I forgot to mention was that the polishes (especially Zephyr) were quite hard to buff off, something I just put down to the different paint type. I don't think it was from lack of time, I spent around 30mins on each panel (and only worked the big, easy ones) and Im not sure whether wiping marring would produce holograms like those.

When I wash the car next ill look for the holograms and see whether they were indeed removed by eraser.

I'm not so sure, the paint looked pretty good in the post polishing pics under 50w of LED. Maybe if I'd had more time I might have jewelled it a bit more
