    Well, I'm in my chemical room with both products.

    While I say A12, M06, and M26 all qualify as banana, Ultimate Polish smells like a banana shake.

    I think I'm going to stop and get one later. I'm done working for the day (aside from washing towels/pads)...

    Ultimate Polish and Ultimate Compound are products I wish were available in larger quantities.

    Maybe Nick can get them for me by the case?

    I use Meguiars M205. I been using it for more than 5 years now, and brought nothing less than stellar results. However, I recently bought a gallon of BOSS Perfecting Cream, because I heard that it capable of long buffing cycle. It will also awesome with my BOSS G21.

    Shine Supply Classic Cut with Megs MF pad hands down the BEST . You get good cut and rarely have to go back to polish it. Or their Classic Polish is good too.

    Optimum Polish II works well for me but most of the time I use Poli-Seal instead.

    Your #6 may be dependent on your paint and what kind of orange pad you have.

    I did a AIO the other day and the difference between my test spots with LC orange and white Flat Pads on black paint was obvious. I had to go with the white because the orange pad left a haze behind.

    I have used OPT hyper polish on 3 of our 4 cars at home and its hands down brilliant.

    Some of you guys mentioned Megs UP...That one does nothing for me and its a nightmare to buff off. But Megs UC on the other hand is great.

    •For a Finishing polish (that needs to
    be followed with an LSP):
    -I nominate Meguairs M205

    •For a one-step product...(needs no
    follow-up polishing/LSPing steps)...
    that will, IMO, meet your above criteria:
    -I nominate McKee's 37 Jeweling Wax

Any areas of polish that are more difficult to remove, I just use a MF Towel and a small bucket of Uber Rinseless and wipe it off. Zero issues.

    I would suggest that if you have areas that are difficult to remove to verify you've actually removed all the contaminants. I will say that on cars where I've clay/nanoskinned AND Chemically decontaminated the paint, I have no issues removing Adapt when used in right amounts. Swap Pads after two panels and do the above and I would be surprised if you have trouble.

    AIO Wise, hands down HDSpeed. I only do this work on the side so 1 car per week, sometimes 2 and 90% of what I target is HDSpeed AIO applications.
    Am going to update this with Essence now too. I use it as my base polish before ceramic coatings now.
