    Just did this for a buddy of mine. He lived in Atlanta which is know for horrible acid rain and hard water. He drove it alot so there was small road rock chips.

    Meguiars NXT car wash and clay barred at same time.
    (HUGE time saver!)

    Meguiars #80
    (Hood was done twice)

    Meguiars #26 Hi-Tech Yellow Wax
    (Two coats on hood and Roof)

    Looks pretty good. :)

    I take it the swirling was pretty minimal because #80 isn't all that aggressive and VW has pretty hard paint.

    Yep. All the customer wanted was a "wax job". I just polished it some. You are so right about it being a hard paint.

    What would you have used Scott, to get the swirls out? What combo and pad?

    On my Audi it seemed like OC and an orange LC pad took *most* of the swirls out. I did get some OHC recently and am going to try it next time. But VW/Audi has some hard ass paint for sure.

    Has anyone ever used one of those Foam "finger" buffing pads from LC? Ive heard those cut like crazy, and make a Megs burgandy look like memory foam. But the cutting action is incredible, and it works wonders on single stage paint.

    Im just wondering if somthing like that would be worth while to try with Optimum Compound, or Optimum Polish on Audi/VW Paint?
