    That's the first time I've ever heard of SwirlX hazing anything. I thought it was way too mild for that.

    Still - as you say - your paint is very soft, so I guess anything is possible...

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.

    I think Ultimate Polish knoecked the hard edges off many of the swirls which caused increased gloss and clarity and then added rich polishing oils to the surface which helped more.

    Does that help?
    Sure! Thanks a lot!

    Re: Ultimate Polish Review!!

    It is totally different technology than M80. M80 uses DAT (Diminishing Abrasive Technology) while Ultimate Polish uses SMAT (Super Micro Abrasive Technology).

    It would be a much better comparison to compare Ultimate Polish to M205 as they are derived from the same technology. The difference is that Ultimate Polish has much more polishing oils than M205.

    M80 will not leave as glossy or clear of a finish in my honest opinion.

    Thanks Shawn, that's good to know.

    Do you think M205 can be applied by hand with relative ease ?

    M205 can definitely be applied by hand easily. I find Ultimate Polish to apply even easier but M205 works very nicely by hand. It's good for acting as a light paint cleaner when you use it by hand. There really is not much in terms of correction when using it by hand. But, by all means, go ahead and do it!

    Not much correction but a lot of gloss, right ? (not as much as UP)
    Think I'll give it a try.
    Thanks!

    If I remember right swirlx is made to remove minor swirls an defects it has cutting power. Not quite as much a ultimate compound it is the least agressive of the two. Swirlx is not advertised as a polish so comparing swirlx and ultimate polish side by side is not a true comparison . I believe you are to use the swirlx first to remove minor swirls and defects and then apply the ultimate polish as a next step to polish and bring out the color in the car. Which then is followed by a wax or sealant. So if you were to look at the order of things. Swirlx or Ultimate compound (which ever is needed for you paint condition) then Ultimate polish and finished with Ultimate wax.

    PS Swirlx and Ultimate compound fall under the painter cleaner categories. They prepare the painter for polishing (Ultimate Polish) and then waxing
