Alfa needs a polish, which combo

Weather permitting tomorrow I hope to spend the day on my Alfa, decontaminate, clay, polish and wax.

Can't decide between Megs 205 or Scholl S40 so SMAT vs DAT

I have DAS6 Pro and a DJ Spin Doctor Rotary

Pad wise LC HT Crimson and CG Hex white spring to mind.

Which would you use?

I would go 205 white pad to remove any marring or fine swirls, then S40 on the HT pad with the Rotary just to burnish the paint to the max

How old is it and is the paint metallic? I did a 60 plate metallic red colour although it looked kind of maroon. Paint was moderately hard, responded quite well to a Scholl navy spider pad and S20. I was expecting the paint to be soft but it wasn't.
