Definately a nice autumn day! I figured you would have those up quickly, Ryan. haha. They did turn out pretty good, I know I have a new wallpaper on my computer. Well get that claybar and 3M Compound on your car, top it all with a little Zaino and you'll blow away those two f-bods anyday....that pearlescent paint will look awesome.

why is the compound needed? is there defects that a typical cleaner/polish wouldn't get rid of?

Yeah, those rims are for the 30th Anniversary Trans Am'* Only. There were 500 American Spec Convertables and somthing like 2000 American Spec Coupes. Regarding the 3M Compound: The Perfect It II is an abrasive compound that I have found works really well to help blend the paint and work out large swirl marks. Then if you follow this up with a nice polish, those swirls made by the actual compound will be worked out leaving you with a perfect, swirl free finish. I have found that 3M makes pretty good products. There is another brand that I can't think of that a lot of people use too, but I can not think of the name. I'll get back to you on that one. Basically, my reason for being specific with the 3M, is that from my personal experience, I have found nothing to work better. The 3M with my PorterCable gave me reasonably good results. I will also post up with a good site of how too'* if interested.

EDIT: I am not sure on the 30th Ann. Coupe Numbers. It could be 2500.

i'm just going by the typical Meguiar’* Philosophy

"Always use the least aggressive product to get the job done"

compounds are generally harsh. from the meguiars standpoint, #83 is the "harshest / most abrasive" product recommended for PC use.

I personally have a bottle of the 3M compound you speak of, but it only comes out in EXTREME situations (and usually applied by hand to scratches)
