Well, I FINALLY DID IT! :D :D :D

Products used:
Mother's MF's (I WANT MORE, THEY WORK SO GOOD.)
Meg's Ultimate Compound.
Meg's Ultimate Polish.
AutoGlym SRP.
Mothers ULTIMATE PURE Caranuba Wax. (really nice beading.)
Mothers Clay kit.
Yellow, Green, and Blue Uber pads.
Griots Garage DA.

Step One:
Dawn/Meg's Gold class mixture (i wasnt sure it it was bad to COMPLETELY use dawn. :p but trust me, there was ALOT of soap there regardless.
Surprisingly, only the front, and rear bumpers, and the front of the hood needed claying, i feel like i wasted a damn bar. :mad: ill have to remember to cut it into pieces next time. :sorry

Step Two:
Yellow Uber with UC.
It did a pretty good job, had a nice amount of cut, but, seeing as my car has only ever been waxed in its life, i have some pretty BAD swirls. (garage queen)
I think next time, im going to need something with MORE cut?
Recommendations?
Anyway, i still got AWESOME results, i would say about...80% correction, and whatever i didnt get, was too deep for UC, or they were RDS.
Also, i noticed it dusts a bit, not a TON, but noticeable. Im guessing dusting is just something that comes with machine polishing?

Step 3:
Green Uber pad, with Ultimate Polish.
I ****ING LOVE THIS STUFF. Seriously, its AWESOME, very smooth, almost no dusting (veryveryverylittle) and gave a RICH pop to the car. :]
It removed a ton of haze that came with the UC, (now, again, uc doesnt haze that bad, but once finished with UP it was definitely noticeable)
Overall, a VERY positive experience with it versus UC. (as i said, i wish it would have cut a little more.)

Step 4:
Blue Uber pad, with AutoGlym SRP (super resin polish, which is pretty much just a sealant with slight polishing capabilities.)
Again, this was AWESOME, and just like the last time i tried it, added a whole nother' level of POP, and clarity to my car.

Final Step:
Red Euro foam Applicator with Mother's Ultimate PURE Caranuba Wax.
I LOVE this wax, its not a paste, nor a liquid. It's old school, think, pure wax-y wax. ;) LMFAO.
Went on super smooth, and even tho i applyed it on a weee bit think, it was a DREAM to buff off. GOOD JOB MOTHERS!!!

and th-th-th-th-th-that's all folks!
until tomorrow, when i go out and take some photos! :D

Another quick tidbit.
i was correcting the trunk, and i lifted off a 1/4 inch for a half second because my cord fell on the paint, and the damn pad blew to pieces! (yellow cutter)
it only blew up in the center, and went right down to the velcro on the pad itself.
:mad:
also, its was EXTREMELY HOT, and almost burnt me! :eek:
what was i doing wrong?

Can't wait to see the pics Vince:)

as a replacement for UC try one of the following Meguiars M105, Menzerna Powergloss, Chemical Guys Paint correction # 700, Mothers Professional Heavy Duty Rubbing Compound #81232

to replace UP try Menzerna 203S Power Finish

As for the backing plate replace that asap because that one is just plain out crap mine also got extremely hot and the velcro on it started to loosen up in the center. I would like to get this one since it like the ones made for rotary use that conform to curved panels. But if you dont want to use that much cash get this one (second link).

You can also try the new Meguiars DA system if you want I haven't tried it so I cant speak for it. I have read alot on it and it seems like a good system, I would like to give D300 compound and the cutting discs a try. I wont get D301 finishing wax or the finishing discs because I already have AG SRP which is a AIO product and Menzerna 203S will give better results.
