mitmaks Ive had best results with Meguiar's. I can't think of any Meguiar's product that I don't like, they all do their job if you know how to use them.

Hit it with 1500, 2000, 3000 Trizact, 4000 trizact.
Buff with No compound just 3 M finesse glaze.
In that #1 picture is the car finished?

deadbodyman I've never used that trizact paper but I will on my next job,I'm so sick of buffing it aint funny ...It makes a lot of sense to use sandpaper insted of an abrasive compound...Buffing sucks

Now days I spray two coats and only two coats ,if I want more clear I spray two more coats after two days...and after sanding with 600-800 (of coarse)...to check to see if the clear is cured enough I press my finger nail into the clear to see if it leaves an indentation,if it does ,its not ready....
thanks, i put on 3 coats on dec. 24 and it seems dry now but not getting the high polish i think i should be seeing. im going to polish again with a diffrent compound in the next week or so.

Spi

I cut the trash down with 1500 (wet by hand), then cut orange peel with 2000, (wet /by hand)then hit it with abralon or trizac 3000 or 4000. Then Polish with 3m's 3 step system of compound, (wool pad) finesse (foam pad) and ultafina by hand with microfiber towel. Barry I think recommends presta products. Cut it and let it set a day in the sun or two days inside it will be amazing how nice it buffs after the surface is broken and it is allowed to gas out. I use spi clear exclusively and cant say enough about how nice it is to work with.

What are you using to finish buff on your spi universal? I have mine cut and polished but not getting the shine I'd like to see. This is on red that is flat as glass and cut well just looking for ideas on steps and compounds after the cutting process.
