    I will have to say, I am rather embarrassed for this to be my wife’s car. I have not paid ANY attention to this car and it is my fault. I will be doing this car in sections because I like to spend time with my wife and baby on the weekends. Not sure if you now, this car is ALL plastic.

    I started with the hood today. Let me tell you, I DO NOT like this paint. It is extremely hard to get swirls and scratches out. I needed my 4’’ pads that I had ordered and right after I finished the Mail Man showed up with them, go figure. I got the edge pads. There is a orange, white, and green. I think I am going to like these. I need a yellow pad as well for this paint.

    Products:
    Meguiars Gold Class Shampoo
    Meguiars Clay with Meguiars Ultimate Detail as lube
    Meg 105 (orange pad)
    SIP (orange pad)
    Wolfgang Glaze 3.0 (black pad)
    Collinite 885 (applied by hand) x 2
    Porter cable
    Cobra Guzzlers
    First off, this was my first time with 105. I will have to say, it worked okay but it dusted SO bad. It was really bad. I tried some pad conditioner and some distilled water, but man, it still dusted. I had to do two passes with the 105. Also, WG glaze I really liked. It worked very well and gave a nice finish to the paint. Cobra guzzlers, what the HECK was I thinking not using these before? They are AWESOME! I got them from autogeek when they had them BOGO and I am so happy with the purchase. I also wanted to thank Matt from autogeek! On with the pics:
    Before:
    Water would just sit on the hood. It is terrible. Shame on me!

    Afters:
    You can see a little hologramming here but this was before glaze, it removed it.

    Nice work! 105 works better via rotary than with a Random Orbital.

    yeah. Some have success with it on a porter cable but not me. I am just going to go back to my SIP with my 4'' edge pads. I really need to pick up a yellow pad as well.

    scott, what would you follow 105 with? I still didn't get 100% of the scratches/swirls out. got about 95% of them though. I am thinking this is where a rotary comes into play.
