This was my first detail with the PC so I'm assuming I will get better with time-but to be honest I didn't see some of the results that others do on here (there was improvement but not all the light scratches came out as I expected). I have a few tips to use less product, spend more time, etc. which I am going to work on. However, my main question is this: Should all the imperfections be out during the 1st phase (I started lighter but with only fair results I stepped it up to optimum hyper compound with a cutting pad) or will some of these imperfections go away once I put on a wax or polish? I am going to throw a coat of wax on it as well, but my understanding is that all imperfections should be out when using the compound and the wax or polish just adds more depth to the color. Thanks for any input.
