    Not sure which product to start with.

    I'm new to the DA polishing world but not to detailing as a hobby. I have a 2020 911 that I have been trying to be super careful but still have very light scratches. I have the following Megs products and a Griots G9. Please could you tell me what you recommend me use?

    Meguiars Scratch X 2.0
    Meguiars UC
    Meguiars 105
    Meguiars 205
    Meguiars #9

    My process was going to be:


    • Wash
    • Rinse
    • IronX
    • Rinse
    • Clay
    • Polish
    • Sealant


    Does that sound correct?

    Thanks

    I tend to like to wash after IronX/TarX...

    As far as products, #205 then seal/wax should be fine for mild swirls... if not looking at some newer products.

    But there is also a question of what pads you are looking at using?

    Thanks Murr, the pads I have are the ones that came with the 5" conversion kit for the G9. My plan was to go light as the car is only 1 year old and I felt like I've always been super careful with rag company wash mits and drying towels, with two buckets grit guards, etc. Surprised I managed to scratch it.

    My wife's car is a little older and has a similar amount of scratches. I wash that one too, so it must be my fault. I'm considering rinsing with distilled water so I don't have to touch the paint.
