polishing new skin

I have the initial first polishing done on our 66 Safari using the black bar from Caswell. I polished everything but the side skin which was replaced with new 2024 . Now it's time to do a second round... what is the proper material for the new skin. I have several Nuvite grades along with a couple of white bars. Being in Mich my biggest issue is temperature, is it true the Nuvite doesn't work in cold weather? And why? Thanks all I need to keep this project going so any help/ideas are greatly appreciated.

Don't start with black. I'd start with C or G if you have it. G starts out strong but breaks down rapidly. You might start with C if you have it also...might be the best way. White is just for final polish and shine.

I polished some new skin on the interior of my Bambi II & I think it polished up with Nuvite S. It doesn't need much to come up to a mirror shine (unlike the rest of your trailer!) Start out with the finest stuff you have to see how it comes out. Then work your way up if you have to.
