    Hard clearcoat, need some help

    Hello all,

    I have a bit of a problem, because this never happened to me before. I am in process of detailing Cadillac Escalade and can't seem to get perfect result without sanding.

    First of all, the car was repainted, and on original paint I get perfect result, the one that I want, but the parts that were repainted, can't seem to get good results. Also the hood is heavily scratched and I can't get rid of scratches (not feeling them with nail) without sanding.

    I tried meg's yellow pad and UC, then yellow pad M95, then Wool pad and M95 and saw that with wool pad I got more scratches, but with yellow pad and either M95 or UC I get good results though bigger scratches are not removing completely. Here's and example.

    Here's original paint on door

    Before



    After



    And there's where I have problem with the hood

    Before



    After (2 times on yellow pad and M95, 1 time on wool + M95 and then 2 times yellow pad and UC)



    Thank you for help and suggestion.

    What happens if you use the wool, etc to get the bad scratches, then follow up with something mild like #205 to remove what the wool leaves?

    After wool pad, I get small spider web scratches, and with DA on yellow pad and M205 they remove, but if you look at the last picture this is the end result that I get. I can't get rid of those bigger scratches, though you can't really feel them with the nail.
