Change of mind. Advice appreciated.

I posted in the thread for 'Waxes Sealants and Paint Protection' yesterday.
I bought a bottle of Menz 3in1 as I have difficulty doing a full restoration these days and thought it might be an easy option.

The more I thought about it the less I liked the idea. I've never used this Megs stuff before and it leaves a wax on the paint. According to reports it's not a durable finish.
I've ditched the idea ( I know £12 wasted) and I've ordered Autoglym UHD wax, something I have been longing to try.
So I have these options, without spending any more and USING THE PRODUCTS I HAVE!!

My plan is full wash and decon +clay.

Use my Megs Ultra Compound to remove light swirling on my CG Hex Logic Green Pad. (DA Polisher).
Bearing in mind I'm now using AG UHD as my LSP I can either, with my CG Hex Logic WHITE PAD, do a final polish of Megs Mirror Glaze 205 Ultra finishing polish, IPA or similar wipe down, then on with the UHD. Or, would it be better to follow the Ultimate Compound with SRP prior to UHD?.

Your suggestions appreciated.

Not sure what car youre trying this on or with which DA so may be you can ignore this, but on hard BMW clear coat i got no noticeable swirl corrections with Megs Ultra compound using the green heavy polishing pad on a DAS6 pro. Wasted plenty of time trying too which i know is something you want to avoid.

I think the SRP will help fill some of the remaining swirls with its resin, so if i had time, id use it yes.

I like to apply wax with the black hex logic pad because the machine can spread thinner than i can by hand. I use the smaller ones (4" i think) though as they fit in the wax pot. Not sure if the AG UHD will fit one in? I buff by hand though.

Skoda Fabia so VW paint.

Yes the old arms won't last long enough so need some combination that sees progress!
I do plan to apply the wax by hand though as I have more control that way, especially on the vertical panels.

I mean, I'm happy to buy the best pad polish combo. Just want some ideas.
Also I want to know if anyone has put UHD on top of SRP or is it better on a clean Panel?.

Ok, so i also tried Megs 105 with the green pad to a swirled Scirrocco - and again had to switch to the orange pad.

SRP followed by Bilt Hamber double speed or Fusso Dark (different cars) seems to be lasting pretty well. Sorry cant help on the UHD.

Dont quote me but i was told SRP is acrylic based and forms a good bonding layer for just about any wax.
