so if I slip my trailer into your drive in the middle of the night, would you notice, or just polish it? Kind of like the cuckcoo bird.

Your polish job looks fantastic! Are you only using Nuvite and your DeWalt and Cyclo? Or was there another polishing compound you used before the Nuvite?

thanks, when it come to polishing Iím always trying something new. I used the spiral sewn cotton wheels with dewalt (see post #856 and #858) for the first cut, using the brown and white bars, very fast. Then I used the cyclo with cloth fleece wraps Polishing Cloths : PerfectPolish.com with nuvite F7, then the cyclo with fleece wraps and nuvite polish. Hope this helps..............
