Why are you using multiple glazing products AND abrasive polishes.
If you've used an abrasive properly you shouldn't need a glaze (unless you have deep scratches) and you only need one glaze, using more than one just replaces the fillers and doesn't benefit the finish.

I use the polish first to remove the worst of it but I go very lightly with it because I worry about over doing it and damaging the paint. I then use the glaze to fill what's left behind. I use multiple glazes because I find the turtle wax when added good and thick takes the white out of road rash. etc but doesn't last very long. So I layer the black light over the top as I like the extra shine it gives plus lasts longer. Then I seal over the top to add the last amount of shine I can get from it plus it lasts a couple months with it. The car always looks soaking wet when it's clean I love it..

I'm sure other people do things that would be questionable to others but it's personal preference at the end of the day and I like what I do and that's all that matters at the end of the day I suppose.

I found the the new formula SRP produced a lot less dust than the old.

That Dolly came up well Tommy, !850HL? My dad had a 1300 the same colour a long time ago.
