We are good to go



Purchased a 5" and 3" navy spider pads and went with the s20 again, initially didn't actually notice much difference, I then turned up the das from 4 to 5 and voila:





Measured the paint afterward and was at low to mid 120's.

Moved on and did the back quarters, again with navy pad and speed 5 (after apply polish with speed 1):

Before:





During:



After:

All in all delighted with the progress, not 100% but a vast improvement. It seems that with clearing up all the small issues, it makes the deeper scratches more noticeable!

Quick shot of the battleground (big thanks to my work for letting me use the worskhop at the weekend!)

Nice work mate but how did you get to the during part did you stop wipe away S20 then do it again then you got the after shot I see you took my advice on using a filler glaze.

I am finding it a lot easier to do smaller sections. I had masked half the rear quarter and pulled the tape off.

To be honest, I did it so it would show the results that in turn I could post up to encourage me to keep going! That was 3 hours today just to do these bits!

Well if your getting the results like that you should carry on regardless what we say mate, well done and if it takes another 3hours so be it as long your doing it right and in this case your spot on

apologies for the minor hijack - just noted my old S20 was "blue" rather than "black" version, anybody know the difference in cut because my blue version felt more medium than heavy cut - cheers nice car btw

On a scale of 0-6 with 0 being no cut and 6 being very aggressive, it has a value of 3. S20 black is 4 and S30 is 2.5.

Been dodging away at this, panel at a time at the weekend when time allows. I am finding I am dropping down to the smaller navy spider pad due to the contours on the body.

Is there another all in one product that gives more cut than the S20? I am getting the results...eventually but it is requiring multiple hits (ie up and down, back and forth till product flashes, then work it some more, wipe off, inspect and then go again on the same bit).

You probably need to step it up to S17 to get the results you want, but it does sound like you might be better off using a compound like S3 gold then finishing it of with S40 if you are looking for a proper job

Everyone goes on about s20 as a good 1 step polishing but it doesn't work on every paint sometimes it needs that extra cut just to get the results you want, and by the looks of it you are taking your time panel by panel so why not do it properly.
