Glad that seems to be doing the trick! Looks good!!!

We went straight to "C" after compounding with the tripoli bar. Just make sure you clean all the compound off with mineral sprits each time you move on from a coarse to a finer grade of polish. Otherwise it defeats the process. We also have differnt pads for each grade of compound/Nuvite.

Roger all that.

Looks like we have 5 straight days of rain ahead, so it's almost time to move into the garage and start polishing window frames. I have a guy coming out next week to install a new product from 3M called the "Prestige Series". It's a film he installs onto our glass before we rebuild the windows. It blocks 30% of heat and 99.9% of UV rays…. all while being virtually clear. But that's a story for a different thread.
