    Old compound

    Hello all. I buffed my wifes Carrola the other day. I ended up having to do 2 passes on a UDM, speed 6, 5.5 yellow CCS pads with this old bottle of Optimum Compound to remove the swirls. Is the compound supposed to be real thin, liquid consistency? It also dusted a bit. Or is mine just old and done(even though it seemed to work). It left the finish kind of hazy so I hit with the new OPII with an orange pad, followed by OPS with a blue pad. It took a few hours just to do the hood. It looked great but two passed with a yellow pad w/ compound to get out the swirls is that normal? Thanks for your insights everyone.

    Yeah it's a dark green. I'll hit it again next week, thanks for the tips fellas!

    Thanks Bence. Actually pulling it out in the sun showed a little hazing. Didn't notice it with the Brinkmann. I'm sort of doing my car little by little, can't dedicate a full day to it yet. I'll post some pics at some point. This is fun!
  4. Hi all! Great forum by the way. I'm new to machine polishing and it's unfortunately, addicting. I have been using OC with a 5" Orange CCS pad with a UDM, and am I crazy or is it LSP ready after that? There doesn't appear to be any marring, hazing, swirls, nothing. Is it absolutely necessary to hit it with the polish afterward? Has anyone else had this experience? Thanks!
