With the old 7500 clear,i used 1500 DRY to SEE how much peel I had and then went wet with 1500 and a block if it's knocking it down and then used 3M PerftctIt II regular cut with a wool pad and then a Black waffle pad and PerfectIt II swirl remover to finish it off. If the peel is bad,I went to 1200 first.
If you have the Trizact pad and disk (3000),thats just easier after the 1500 and then go with the white waffle pad and regular cut,then the swirl remover with the black foam. Finish with the hand glaze.
