    Ford's Piano Black "B" pillar plastic - How to remove swirls/scratches?

    So I have a new 2019, and ford uses this plastic that is EXTRA prone to scratches and swirls. Well I used Novus plastic polish and a MF towel to polish them, and in the sun... well looks worse. Any pointers/ideas on how to get these polished out a bit better?

    Any fine polish on a light cutting pad or polishing pad.

    I personally use CarPro Essence and a Green HexLogic Pad on my Flex 3401 or Rupes Mille. From there I ceramic coat them and am now offering to apply PPF to the B-Pillars of customer vehicles as an upgrade since they do tend to scratch easily.

    Some basic Examples I've captured from details recently done.

    Thanks! Wasnt sure as Ive heard that these are super soft and the marring never ends... I have HD polish+, Griots perfecting cream, and Hyper polish, and well that Novus plastic polish too.

    But I use LC flat pads, which are white, orange, blue, black

    I also have Griots 3" pads in black and orange. Might be better since I can get more pad on the plastic and no as much overhang.
