I found these videos some what helpful. I have had a lot of frustration in my polishing project. My trailer has a "mill finish" which has made it challenging to get a decent finish. I have found the first cut is essential to getting an even finish.
I use a low rpm (800) and go a little slower than he suggests in the video.

I think you will find you like the nuvite stuff. Get the F 9, F 7, and C grade.

Most of the battle is technique and from your pics it looks like you got it down!

Thanks
Check out Posts #470-476 (and others in that area of our "It's a Girl!!!" thread) for our polishing philosophy, list of materials & where to get them.

Good luck!
