Cloudy finish

I am using the bar method.After passes with black then red it was nice,but uneven.I though I would blend with Truck Box Polish or Mothers Aluminum Mag Polish.I did this by hand just to see the effect,but it leaves a more uneven and sort of cloudy shine.What's up?

I am not a fan of either Truck Box or Mothers. I have had the same results as you. I am now about 30% into my compounding with your black bar/sisal wheel...I will start compounding with Nuvite F7 or G this week. Then a Nuvite last stage. I am having a miserable time with this polish job.....can't figure it out. Anyway, that cloudy results with those polishes is what I have seen before. This polishing in near 100 degree heat is not a kick. Come by for a cool one or two.
