its was nice out last week so I made my brother help me polish and wax the ride. we washed with onr and then clayed and then I busted out the udm and put a meguiars yellow pad on and some meg's scratch and swirl remover. this was my first time ever polishing and using a udm. I applied some polish to the pad and set the udm to 5 and then started to to polish. after going up and down and side to side on a portion of the hood a few times I stopped to inspect my work and it seemed like some of the swirls were still there and it was all streaky. I used a terry cloth towel to try and remove the rest of the polish but it just seemed to move the streaks around and I couldn't get them out. I tried using s100 shine enhancing cleanser to remove the residue but it didn't really help so then i just went over the rest of the ride with the polish, going over it with a mf towel afterward and then applied some opti-seal and then a coat of s100 wax. in the the end the car ended up looking pretty good but I'm wondering if I was polishing corretcly or if I need to use something different next time. I'm thinking maybe some optimum polish and a different pad. any input it appreciated.
