Question about polishing compounds
« on: October 13, 2021, 08:26:03 PM »
I am seeking the most appropriate product(s) for the final stages of buffing and polishing an auto basecoat/clearcoat finish.  I have seen three different Meguiars polishing products:  Ultimate Compound, Mirror Glaze, and SwirlX.  I haven't been able to determine the difference between the three.  I would like to know which one(s) to use and in what order if more than one.  Thanks.

   I *think* it would be compound, then swirl remover. Compound is usually pretty coarse, so you would want a medium and fine polish afterward, followed by swirl remover. That's usually about as far as I would ever go, but I am an 18-point kind of guy, at best. Mirror glaze, I never even use that on cars.
