    Got a referral phone call last from a president of a local bank. She had just moved from Atlanta to the mountains and had not yet found a professional detailer. She said it had not been cleaned in almost 4 months and was to embarrassed for me to take "before" shots. I said ok and went to work.
    Here's the lowdown...


    Optimum Hyper Compound
    (EDGE 2K Yellow DuraFoam Pad-Softer than the standard Yellow Cutting pad...#5 setting)
    Had a sample of this sent to me from a forum pal...thanks Scooter!. Figured I'd try it out on this heavily scratched paint. Did really well and with a few light passes, was LSP ready in my book. Removed ALOT of imperfections and reduced the major ones. Now I know why everyone like this stuff!

    Pinnacle's Liquid Souveran
    (EDGE 2K White Finishing Pad...#3 setting)
    Stuff is really thin and goes along way once the pad is primed. I left it to haze for about 45 minutes. So easy to buff off and left a nice wet finish. Made silver look deep in my opinion.

    Other Products used:
    Armor All Tire Gel
    Souveran Leather Cleaner and Conditioner
    Woolite 6:1
    Meguiar's APC 4:1
    Meguiar's Hyper Dressing 4:1
    Stoners Invisible Glass

    The paint has a really wet glow! :drool:

    Pretty amazing how something as aggressive as Optimum Hyper finishes down so well on harder paints, isn't it?

    How much of it do you use per panel Scott?
    Is Optimum your main choice for compounds and polishes now?
