Started about 8am this morning.. Just now pulled the truck out of the garage.. Highly frustrated. Compound is definitely NOT for the Novice.. A Orbiter/Polisher definitely is not the tool..

I'd the the paint to show through and clear up then somehow manage to fck it up again.. Ended up doing it by hand to eventually dulling it out again..

On minor jobs the clay bar, compound,polish, and wax would really bring out the luster in a vehicle..

This guy does a great job at detailing cars of all sorts. He makes great videos. Maybe some of his videos will help you out!

are you using it in the sun suring the hottest part of the day? there's a reason professionals do stuff like this in the shade 👍 maybe that'll work better

Maybe there is some wrong even when I did it by hand in that little section it would still dry up and then i'd have to scrub it off..
