Nuvite which bonnets?

Started on the Caravanner yesterday with Nuvite Grade A and wool pad on 7 1/2 polisher. Spectacular results with minimal swirls. This is my first experience with Nuvite, my trailer was not badly oxidized and I made a good guess starting with Grade A. I ordered some Grade S but I'm not sure which bonnet to use on the polisher. Next question, should I use the polisher for Grade S? I know the cyclo is recommended for this however I'm trying to decide between the cyclo and a rivet shaver for the moment, can't do both. As I said polishing with Nuvite is totally uncharted territory for me I would like input from others who have experience with this. Thanks to all.

Take a look at the info at PerfectPolish.com. You should get all your questions answered. When I polished my 65 I was tempted to just do the compounding as it really made a huge difference. I then bought the Cyclo, got ride of small swirls and then used Nuvite S and wow! The deep shine it produces and does give some protection.
