Polish for thin paint

So i am planning on removing the swirls on the Pug at some point this year and i have CG hex logic pads and the much famed Megs 105 & 205.

However, the paint on the Pug is ridculously thin, the edge of the bonnet is only 20 microns for example.
So having said all of that, is there anything else anyone can remoomend to use to remove the swirls? Oh and i plan on jewelling it before applying the chosen coatings so does anyone have anything else they can recommend, pads & polish?

Why bother chasing perfection on such delicate paint? It will inevitably need doing again.

I instantly though of the likes of carpro essence

BTS has got it right Muzzer
Glare would be absolutely perfect, Philip has some stuff left.

Perfect for soft, thin, delicate paints etc
Will give you a stunning finish with no abrasion and two coats of the pro polish will give you protection too

Looking into Kamikaze coatings at the moment, possibly Miyabe then topped with their wax

Shame your not a little closer to me, you could come over for a try of glare before you made any decisions

You can still wax over glare! I've had the In2 ceramic wax on my Glared Juke for about 2 months now with no signs of the beads starting to break down
I know it won't bond brilliantly to glare like bare paint but it will still bond

And best of all any fresh swirls or RDS you notice you can fix in 1 or 2 steps and the clearcoat is unaffected
I find myself outside often doing silly 'fixes' as I know I won't do any cutting away or clearcoat

This to come straight to my mind bud

If you have very thin paint, preserving the clear is the key then Essence on a Carpro gloss pad is your fella here this will mask and give you fantastic gloss levels and protection plus a base for whatever you decide to put on top as your LSP

Sounds like a plan to me, the average reading across the rest of the car whilst thin, isn't too bad(90 microns) but the edges are ridiculously thin and i'll be leaving those well alone i think
