Fresh Respray Help please

Hi all
Needs some help please as I have been a complete nober.
I am building a new show VW T25 van for this season
So a couple of months ago I had a full respray in Jaguar Italian Racing Red.

Anyway have be building it back up ready for the show season and yesterday fitted in a new headlining.

All went well however as I was fitting it I was leaning through the front windscreen hole and without noticing my jumper was rubbing on the front panel which has results in a large number of light swirls.

Now I have a DA polisher but never used it so need to break it out of the box and give it ago. Its only a cheapo from Argos that I got a gift so I hope it will be suitable.

Its this one if that helps:


However I have no pads, polish etc and I am unsure I what I should be looking at.

So please could somebody help with what polish and pads I should be looking at.

As I mentioned they are not deep and are swirls created by a dirty jump rubbing across the paint.

Really appreciate any help

First I would research the correct technique as it won't really matter what you use if the technique is messed up. Have a look in the guide section, the Junkmans guide. That will get you started.

Ok I have decided on CG Hex White and Black pads.

I will start with Mig #205 and see how that works out. If I need something with a bite more bite what shall I step up to?

Thanks

If you're only planning to use M205 and want to step up you'll probably want to consider the orange hex pad.

You'll probably also want to grab a bottle of M105 to give you more options/cutting power if needed.

M105, M205 combined with orange and white hex pads are a great combo and mostly what I use (however others are available too )

As above, but I would then go from your white pad to a green pad, this is your in between pad so it will determine if you really need to step it up to the more aggressive orange pad. Can be use either with 205 or 105 depending on what paint you have i.e. Soft-medium-hard, and you will know this when you do your test spot first with the white pad and 205.
