    Trouble removing deep scratches and stains

    I finished detailing outside of car - my first time "deep" cleaning the paint. After multiple attempts, I still have some scratches and stains. I used a DA orbital polished with medium cut 6" pad, Ultimate Compound, Ultimate Polish then waxed. I do not believe the Ultimate Compound is cutting enough to remove the remaining issues.

    Looking for recommendations on a deeper cutting compound.

    Cheers, Keith

    Any chance of a photo or two to see what is being worked on? And info about the paint / stain, etc?

    There are many situations where a more aggressive combination is required. A good next step up is our D/A Microfiber Cutting Disc with our D/A Microfiber Correction Compound.

    This looks like a bird dropping etching. May need some wet sanding to remove it.
