    Yeah. That was one of the variations I found.

    As others have pointed out, your issues have a lot to do with your polish and pad combo. You picked the least aggressive pad and polish combo possible; an ultra fine polish and ultra fine pad. Something like a Lake Country blue SDO pad and 3D One will do better. Japanese paint tends to be on the soft side so something with a moderate level of cut should do the trick.
    ONE and that blue foam is such a versatile combo.

    If you are using a Porter Cable just run it at speed 6. You need to give that tool everything it’s got.
