If it's similar to this old Renault Kangoo van which had no clearcoat then it should respond well to products with some bite. I used a navy Scholl spider pad and S20. It took 2-3 hits on most panels to get the job done.

Yep, it's incredibly versatile, good cut and the finish is excellent. Only time I'm not reaching for it is when there's deep scratching or I'm seeking perfection on a customer's car where I'm using S3 XXL Gold and S40.

For a single stage job, surely there's nothing better than S20 out there.

As for a 1 step polish then Menzerna 2200 for hard paint and Menzerna 2500 for medium and soft paint

Maybe when I'm feeling more adventurous down the line I'll dabble with stuff like Menzerna and Koch Chemie.

I've not used it but Sonax EX 04-06 is meant to be pretty good in this regard as well.
