Correcting a Vauxhall Astra

So basically I had a go at my sapphire black astra
Used Menzerna PF2300 and an orange pad which did a great job on most of the defects, but its left the worst scratches, it has taken the edge off them
So now I'm wondering what to use next?
polish and pad advice would be appreciated using a DAS 6
Thanks

I worked on a Black Astra last year (2010 model) but can't remember what the exact colour was. I used a Scholl purple pad which has medium cut along with S3 XXL Gold which did a great job at removing the scratching. I then refined with S40.

Vauxhall paint has possibly been the easiest to correct in my experience of working on all the different manufacturer paints.

See that's the problem when you have removed the swirls you then tend to see the deeper scratches if you only have isolated scratches (RDS) then it may be worth while just switching to a 3" pad and remove them that way so if you are looking for a compound then Menzerna 400 on a cutting pad like a chemical guys quantum orange pad, this will or should remove the deeper scratches or like you said smooth the sharp edges off, then finish it off with a finishing polish
