    Oh I forgot, youíll wash your car on Sunday which of course youíll get the eye roll, THEN the car will get dusty or in my case yesterday had a super light rain/sprinkle just enough to raise the pollen/dust on the car and you do a quick rinseless wash when you get home!

    Welcome to the rabbit hole!

    Welcome!

    My addiction is feeling the slippery surface when I grad the door handle.... knowing the rest of the car is the same!

    Welcome to AGO, Paul!

    Like Mike P said, those swirls look very minor. Do you own a machine polisher?
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Hi Paul, yes I do. I own 2 DAs, one with 6 inch backing plate and the other with a 3 inch backing plate. Iím not sure what to do to take this to the next step. I moved this to the Auto detailing 101 forum, where Mike suggested that the issue could be that Iíve got soft paint. Problem is I donít know what to do about it if soft paint IS indeed the issue.

    Re: First post.....

    Couple of questions:
    1. what kind of car
    2. What product did you/are you using
    3. What pads are you using

    I had a similar experience with my black Acura that has super soft paint when I used an inferior product with crappy abrasives.

    With the help of Mike P and the rest of the forum, I used Blackfire One Step with LC white pads and it came out amazing...real amazing too!

    Hi Jay, thanks for your reply....

    Itís a 2011 Jaguar XJ (X351)

    I compounded the paintwork with Meguiars DA compound and MF cutting disc to remove all the heavy defects.

    Next I tried to refine he finish using Sonax perfect finish with Rupes yellow pads, also tried Chemical guys hex logic green polishing pads.

    I also have Rupes white fine polishing pads but have not tried them yet.

    While Iím writing this, I remember that the car has had a front end re-spray a couple of years ago.... would this then rule out the soft paint theory? The photos I posted were of the front wing.

    Thanks,

    Paul.
