Yep. There are those who still insist modern SRP does not have a cut. Some even say AG staff have actually told them so. But it has a good enough cut to polish out 2500 sanding marks, even without a rotary if you apply it with something mildly abrasive such as a microfibre applicator. But without a machine I'd have still been at it now.

No. I knew what scratches I needed to remove, they were localised to one area. I could tell they were reasonably shallow, so I just kept wiping the panel after every few passes with the 1500 and checking if they'd gone. Stopped immediately after there was no sign of them. Then on the rest of the bonnet I just scuffed it up enough with the 1500 to remove the shine evenly. With the 2500, I lightly passed over the whole bonnet several times until all the marks left by the 1500 were gone and I was left with a dull matte finish with no discernible scratches.

Then I fired up the rotary and prayed to the detailing gods to save me from having to explain to the wife that our most valuable car now has a bonnet which looks like the garage floor.

Dude it has cut for sure, but its minimal, not nearly enough to chop out flatting marks (unless you just tickled the paint to say you wet sanded like some people do). Honestly, get a quality compound and redo it.
SRP has a minuscule amount of mechanical cut and you used it on a pad that has little to no mechanical cut. It would be a shame for you to continuously see your flatting marks return because they are simply hidden. If you get a modern compound and finishing polish with some pads (don't have to spend a fortune) your results will be far more reliable and permanent

Could be worth giving it a good wipe down with IPA to strip the fillers off just to check. I must admit to being a bit skeptical that you've completely polished sanding marks out with SRP.

Ultimate compound or menzerna would help more than srp, agree

Agreed. I doubt very much you polished 2500 out with SRP.

Ive just started to wet sand my Nissan Pulsar GTi-R due to poor respray, this has encouraged me to carry on! I myself stood back when I just decided to go for it and thought holy crap what have I just done lol! im going to be using megs 105 with a CG orange pad on black paint, that definetly removes 2000 grit.

Epic car that too!!
