Hi there, this will be my first time polishing, please take a look at my car at autogeek.net and tell me if everything looks good..

BTW, the Meguire's dual action complete kit comes with 2 white pads, 2 gray pads, 1 blue pad, 2 cobra microfibre towels, pinnacle pad cleanser and conditioner.. so in total ill have 4 whites, 4 orange, 2 gray, 1 blue, and btw do i need to buy a glaze or is the poli-seal a glaze that u use at the end? and is the optimum compound needed when i already have the optimum polish??

What you have looks good to me. To answer your questions poli-seal isn't a glaze it is a sealant, you use the sealant after all paint correction has been done to "seal" the finish. I see you also have the paste wax in your cart so you can layer that on top of the sealant after it has cured 24hrs if you like.

I would get the compound if I were you because the polish really doesn't have a lot of correction ability so to correct the paint you will need the compound. Use the compound first then go over it with the polish.

One last thing. I noticed you are from B.C., why not order the stuff from a canadian website like eshine.ca? They have pretty much everything you need and you won't get nailed with any fees from having your stuff come over the border.

ill be picking up the stuff from across the border.. eshine barely carrys that many products from what ive seen.. and there stuff costs more.. i thought ur suppose to go over the car first with polish with white pad (correct me if im wrong).. then if u still see swirls and scratches switch over to the compound with orange pad because the compound is more abrassive?

edit.. ive decided to add meguires #7 show car glaze.. so the process is polish,glaze,seal then wax after 24 hours?

Also, since your using a PC or DA, use smaller pads for faster correction. 6.5 are fine, but you can do more / quicker with smaller pads.

i'd get the Optimum Compound.

I have OC and OP and the OC is definitely more abrasive to get out those deeper swirls/scratches.
