    Out of these: What's the finest polish I have?

    So the new truck I bought has thin paint, widely known across the internet. I have some water spots and like water runs ( like from under handles etc ) that etched the paint some.

    I want to hit the truck, remove light swirls and remove those water spots/marks...

    I want the polish to finish down fast, I don't want to have to work it long at all to work....

    If what I have won't work, what should I buy??

    I have:
    HD polish+
    Optimum hyper polish
    Boss correcting creme
    Sonax 04-06

    I think what I want is a fine super micro abrasive polish, those don't have to be worked long at all... They can be worked as long as I see fit, and no finish needed, right?

    I think you may be looking for something along
    the order of Meguiar’s M205 Ultra Finishing Polish;
    it has super micro abrasives (SMAT).

    Out of what you have listed, I’d go with Hyper Polish.

    You will be fine with Hyper Polish, HD polish or EX 04-06.

    All three are SMAT? And I can work them short or long, without inducing marring?

    Should I use a white LC flat or maybe a blue LC flat?

    Hyper Polish and HD are. Sonax is DAT. You are going to have to do a test spot with both pads and make that decision. I haven't used HD Polis in a long time as I am not a fan of it. But Hyper Polish and EX 04-06 both finish good.

    Well I want 50 million dollars and the rest of my life of from work but no one is helping me...

    Sometimes those water spots can be pretty severe defects as far as removal. A fine polish might not cut it. Try the hd polish first as I think its the least aggressive. Can you tell us what kinda truck it is?

    Re: Out of these: What's the finest polish I have?

    Thanks guys. Yeah basically I want to use the least aggressive and fastest approach as the paint on this is 1.5-3mil from the factory.

    It's a 2019 f250
