    Ultimate Comp & polish

    I have just hit my 03 jeep wrangler (black) with UC used OB 3,000rmp. Hand rubbed tight spots. I have the NXT wax on stand by. It got dark before I got done. Sould I hit iy with polishing compound before wax?

    The polish step is optional. Being black, it will improve the appearance somewhat.

    I'd wait till the morning and assess it then. Who knows, the UC may have left some marring and you wouldn't be able to tell at the moment in the dark.

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Thanks for the back up. I just wanted to get it done. But like you said I can't see the paint well under light bulbs. I will wait and see in the morning. Is there a polish you would recomend?

    As you have already observed, you need to take a good look at the paint finish in the daylight. If Ultimate Compound has left any marring, you will then want to follow-up with SwirlX (a less aggressive polish), which will remove the marring. But you may discover that the paint is LSP-ready, so you'll just want to apply a coat of NXT and then enjoy.
    Swirls hide in the black molecular depths, only waiting for the right time to emerge and destroy your sanity.
