    Looking for 1 step combo for hard clear

    I'm looking for 1 step combo that can remove 95% defect on my black BMW. I tried menz 203, white pad and rotary with 60-70% correction only. It is my DD. Any suggestion?

    Well i don't think there's a product that can get the defects out and leave a LSP ready finish. Would've been better to just use a 2 step. Think of the time you used in using 204 you would've been half way done with a 2 step.

    theres not really anything that is 1 step except for d300 by meguiars. If you use the d300, you must use d301 to finish it off which is refining and waxing

    Does using MF pads take lesser sectional passes compared to using foam? With menzerna PF i usually do 6-8 section passes at speed 5-6. Would using MF be faster?

    I was going to suggest D-300 as well Here's a pic of a Lexus with semi hard paint with D-300 and orange foam pad done with a Makita rotary. This is with no additional polishing after D-300.

    Thanks for all the tips
    Tried D300 long ago and it is just lack of clarity.
    Saw this post by Todd. He done 95% correction in 1 step by menz 203 and white pad on silver BMW
    I know we aren't even close to him. So dont shoot.

    Menz Super Intensive polish has done wonders for me on BMW.
    Orange LC 5.5 flat pads and surbuff's for stubborn areas.
    I've always followed with m205 on a white LC 5.5 pad and the results are great.
