    As you can tell there was alot of dealer installed buffer trails

    Trying to figure out how to go about it took awhile. Started off with OC w/ Orange Pad, remove some but not all, bumped up to a Yellow pad and that took care of the buffer trails but didnt touch the swirls. Went up to DACP w/ Orange pad and that took about 90% of the swirls.
    After OC and Orange 50/50

    To get the rest the swirls Im probally going to end up investing in a rotary. DACP w/ a yellow didnt do much so Im at my limit with the PC. Sorry for the windows being dirty, I was losing light quick so I pulled it out before doing the windows.

    good job brother......I wouldn't even bother with a rotary...looks 100% better than b4

    edit: which pads are you using? Meguiars? Edge? I am starting to dislike my SFX pads... (not aggressive enough IMO)
