I bet that took some effort to use on a whole car by hand. Its not easy to get a consistant finish by hand without a lot of experiece though.

I always recommend claying before polishing as it can make a bigger difference for less effort. Polishing to remove swirls/oxidisation is a different kettle of fish especially by hand.

Hi micklaw
looking to give my car the meguires treatment. Looked on their website and see the swirl X but cant seem to locate the pre wax polish? Is that the name on the bottle?

There is an ultimate polish which is used after the ultimate compound and before the wax

Surely it should be penultimate polish then! :D

And whilst we're in a frivolous mood, antepenultimate compound. :wink:
