    Didn't get a chance to do paint correction on the whole car, he had a fender dent that was repaired that was buffed by an amateur after the repair and it caused a lot of ishyness.

    On the part that we did correct, I used Optimum Compound with a Yellow cutting pad on speed 5 on the PC. Then followed up with Optimum Polish on speed 5 on a white polishing pad. Finally, did a run of Menzerna FPII with a white polishing pad. The rest of the car just got a once over with Menzerna FPII. LSP of choice was P21S as there's a car show on Saturday and we wanted it looking its best. Durability really doesn't matter.

    Excellent job removing the swirls! VW has some pretty rock hard paint so I know you had your work cut out for you.
