    Well I didnt have much time for this only a few hours so I broke it down into two steps for the paint. I used DACP with a yellow cutting pad then followed up with Pinnacle Liquid Souvern with a White Polishing Pad. There still are a few scratches but I didnt want to use a more abrasive pad because I didnt have time to go back over it to ensure there would be no hazing.

    did you apply the DACP by hand? so you just had swirls on the hood before? That did a fantastic job, i wish i could apply the DACP correctly by hand.

    no it was done using a PC, I only do DACP by hand for quick touch ups thanks in part to Scootwax's explaination. I just dont think my arm has the staminia to endure that much rubbing to get all the swirls out.

    Nice work!

    One of the best things about DACP is that once you work it properly, it usually leaves the paint in good enough condition that you don't have to use a glaze unless you want to.
