I had already compounded and polished the clear after I painted them and the texture remained. I had always wanted to wet sand them just never had time.

the stuff is really easy to take off. I had 4-5 layers of clear on the light and I sanded right through it.

Buffing out that black mustang, 1 step I used a white wool pad @ 1400 rpm & M105. Pulled it out in the sun to check for missed spots and noticed it's covered in holograms. Will that come out on the next step with M205 on a white foam compound pad @ 1200 rpm?

I would try m105 on the same polishing pad. After it's cleaned obviously. That being said I'd probably want a paint gauge reading before compounding again but I think on a polishing pad you should be straight. I've heard that sometimes m105 will refine better than 205 in some circumstances. I don't have experience with these products or machines so take my advice with a grain of salt. :p I would personally try that though.

Haha yeah, didn't dry too bad though. And holy crap does it go a long way. I went ahead and went over it with BSD too. I really didn't expect it to darken the paint so much, holy crap. Made it look much darker

I noticed the same thing on my mom's gmc paint. The second I applied it the paint darkened instantly. It's amazing. I've never seen a color change so much from an lsp.

I went thru a touch less car wash today. I must say it came out allot better than I expected. Does anyone have any advice for a person living in apartments with no way to wash?
