    Mike, can I ask why no #7 soak on this SS paint first? Why right to a polish?

    I "think" that may be the plan but to be honest, I don't know for sure.

    The original hybrid pads are good pads.

    I need to write an article about your question as it comes up a lot.

    The #7 soak is for antique single stage paint that is chalky with oxidation. This paint came in dirty but under the dirt there was still some shine.

    The normal protocol would be to apply the #7 AFTER any compounding and polishing and before the wax for paint that is already shiny. You'll see this when I post the write-up for the 1957 Oldsmobile as this was the procedure I used on it.

    Been there, and done that Mike, in the olden days, when I was 16-17, and cleaning up the "Kahuna's Car". (head gangster of the hood)

    The quick waxjob usually turned out to be 6-8 hellish sweat filled hours before I gave the car back. (I didn't want to find myself in the trunk!)

    One day, he handed me the keys, a brand new Salmon Metallic Caddy, (which his wife later carved up with a knife and scrolled her name on the hood, "KIKA")

    He said, "Check the Oil, Tires, Battery, Transmission Fluid, Washer Fluid, Spare Tire, Radiator, etc", and I asked him as he handed me the keys......

    "You want me to rebuild the engine too?" And he said "No. just the Transmission"! LOL (True story)
