I started polishing this weekend with G6

I know that polishing should be one of the last things I do, but after getting the windows sealed and all leaks fixed, I wanted to start polishing before the heat comes so it is a little more enjoyable outside. I started with Nuvite G6 and so far I really like it! I'm hoping I can go straight from G6 to the S compound. But it looks good enough for me that I might not even want to go over the entire trailer again with S.

I started with F7 on mine, then tried S with the Cyclo, Ended up with some weird cloudy areas that I had to re-compound with F7 to get rid of. I'd stop with G6 if I were you!

Looks fantastic, but way streaky. You might not notice it when it's reflecting the details of the house, driveway, etc... but I have a suspicion you'll want to do 'S' with the Cyclo for a more uniform reflection before all is said and done. Good luck no matter what!

You can definitely see the streaks and swirls, but compared to what it looked like before it is night and day difference. I don't know if I need a showroom finish considering we do some rough camping on dirt roads and I'm sure it'll get scratched by branches. I'm probably going to finish the whole skin with G6 and then continue working on all of my other projects inside the trailer. After everything in completed, then I might go back with S depending on how I feel by mid summer.

Can S be done with something other than a cyclo?
Not all those who wonder are lost.

7 inch good quality wool bonnet. You will be fighting swirls, however.

I to hoped that I could go from G-6 to S ,however I was not happy with the finish. So I used F-7 then S both with the Cyclo worth the extra work
