hand sander over here too. I'll get it to 2000 and switch to trizac at work. At home I'm not buying those expensive pads and the off brands or fake trizac(cheaper knock offs) all have sucked in my opinion. tried the Rhino and wasn't even sure if it did anything.
Maquiers compound 3M polish, swirl remover, and glaze. Around show car time it's like afro sheen around here or car manicure.
