Poor polishing technique?
I think my polishing technique for the last ten years has been all wrong. Usually, regardless of the product, i've applied the polish to the car, worked it for about 20 seconds and then left it to dry to a white haze. Then I've buffed it off with a terry cloth or microfibre towel. The results of always been decent.
Today however, I did something different. Using AG SRP with a Meguiars foam appplicator instead of working the polish for 20 seconds I kept working it until it became a translucent glaze. Grabbed the terry clothe and buffed it off, which was much easier than normal.
WOW!!!! I can't believe the results. The difference was unbelievable. I only polished the bonnet on saturday (post stone chip touch up) and after the first go on part of the bonnet the rest of it looked like it had never been polished!
Most of you guys probably use a technique like this anyway but for me its a revelation. Lots of hard work but with fantastic results!
