tech69 Can't say I haven't done it before. Usually when I don't wash the car to take off the fillers then proceed to the next step before really knowing what's REALLY there. I have a habit of washing a corner off with dawn after compounding and counting up the overlaps of compound it took to get there and then just trusting it's gonna work out like that everywhere. It usually works...usually

John long Tech69 is giving you good advice. If there are sand scratches remaining after the initial buff, more than likely you did not cut it enough with the last color sand. You need to go back and re-color sand that area and then buff again. The whole cut and buff process is a matter of progressively going to finer and finer imperfections IE orange peal, sand scratches, nibs etc. You can't sucessfully go to the next step until the previous one is performed successfully.

Good luck and keep us posted.
