    A few deeper RIDS were left due to no compounding stage. The customer and I were pleased with the results of a single stage, 3 hour polishing session.

    Nice work as always Justin. :)

    I agree, without compounding most cars, you aren't going to get them perfect; however, the average person likely won't notice enough of a difference to be willing to pay extra.
