G3 farecla vs 3M polishing compound

Hi All,

I've finished spraying the hood, and coming to the finishing stages.

I'm looking to colour sand the top coat flat as possible and with your help polish it to a swirl free finish.

In the past I've used G3 and G10 compound after colour sanding. It worked okay. But the only down side is it still leaves swirls in the paint, and sometimes dries hard, which can be annoying to buff off.

How good is the 3M compound polishing system?

Does it remove swirls easily?

The new 3M system and pads works excellent for me, far better than Norton's "Ice" system, but I do not know about how it compares to others.

If you want to remove swirls use 3M blue glaze with the blue pad.

Yes, it will remove hairline scratches.
