Thanks for the warning, I have about six of the OLD white pads from before 3M bought the company that was making pads for Presta and they were loose wound polishing pads, guess the new ones are different.
This goes back to what I said before, compounds all work great but problem is knowing the pad you are using.

Yes--OFF the record.

Color sanding and buffing, there is no right or wrong way, it is whatever works for you.

Also, last thing in the world you want to do is take a 400-600 to two coats of clear, most true if you dry sprayed it.

Yes I start will 400 or 600 but I never do less then four coats and I'm getting about 4 mils per coat, not everyone sprays that way.

If 1000 or 1200 works for you stay with it, like I tell people on the phone everyday, if you know a compound system stay with it, if you gave me a 140 dollar a gallon of 3M, I would not use it as I don't know what it will do but I know exactly what the Presta will do as I have used it for at least 15 years.

One thing common about all the really great painters i know, is they all have their own way and that is what makes them great, how to paint books are written by people who don't paint in my opinion as I have read most of them.
