    So, This morning I started polishing my truck. It took me about 5 hours to do the polish, the glaze and the wax..Pretty fast I think!?...:cool:
    I like the result, there where big scratches all along the truck and they are completly gone. And the operation restored the gloss of the paint.
    -->I used COL'R FLO coumpound (medium)
    --> Meguiar's Glaze
    --> Mother's Liquid wax

    very nice job! Im about to do the whole deal to my truck when my order of stuff comes in. Nice to see that it turned out so well for you! I have very similar looking scratches all along the sides, hope mine come out as invisible as yours did :)

    I used a simnoniz buffer with a Makita wool for the coumpound, a foam applicator for the glaze and wax it by hand

    fwiw, if you went w/ the 105, dont let the residue sit on the paint like the OP did. Do a section or palen at a time, and remove once its been worked in.
    The OP's product may call for the product to sit on there like he did, but Megs 105/205 wont

    Maybe the coumpound is used was not high quality product because it was really hard to remove, that's why i wash the whole car... And by the way, I'm not a professional..;P

    I just mentioned that to 06Radiant b/c I know he picked up the meguiars stuff to do his truck.
    I'm not familiar w/ the product you used, but typically, what you had to do isnt necessary. The residue should wipe off easily, w/o any effort (let alone having to rewash) When polishing, you normally want to work in small sections, say, 2x2' or 3'x3', then wipe off the product before moving on to the next section.
    As long as you're happy w/ the results, thats the most important part :)
