Hit it with my UDM, Lake country CCS orange pad, Menzerna Super Intensive Polish

That car looks really familiar. Only difference being the rims which look far better than mine. Nice job on the polish. How did you do it so quickly? I have been using Menz SIP on 5.5" LC CCS orange pads and can barely cut that GM clear. I still have to follow with Micro Polish on white and black pads. I have spent over 12 hours on my friends '00 Monte SS and I'm still not finished. Even a soft cleared Nissan took me 12 full hours. You are fast!

hmm, now I wonder if I was breaking the polish down all the way There are still some spots that aren't perfect but this was the first try with the UDM and polishing, so I am still learning. I will do it again in a few weeks and get it perfect. I hear ya on the clear being hard though.

I don't know, maybe I'm just slow. IIRC Grimm said it takes him about 10hrs to polish his car. All I know is that I need a rotary soon 'cause I can't make any money this way.
