Beginning the polishing project

We finished our first day of polishing the Bambi II and are satisfied with the results. After four long hours, with a break for lunch, we finished the first pass at 1 1/2 panels. Should the first polish be completed first before embarking on the second and third levels of polishing? I have seen some posts where people do all three levels of polishing on a panel before moving on to the next panel.

Hard as it may be ... I always try to complete one grade of polish on the whole trailer before moving to the next grade. It ain't easy !!
