Hi Greg,

Is this what would be referred to as "holograms"? I used a rotary buffer on the hood of the car to remove spider webs in the finish. I used 3M's swirl remover with a soft foam pad on a rotary buffer @ 1400-1500 rpm. The spider webs came out maybe 80%, and the paint looked great. I put a coat of Meguire's show car polish, and then two coats of carnuba on top and it looked and felt great. After the first carwash the truth seems to be revealed that marks were left.

I'm planning on buying some new pads and some additional polish, but want your reccomendations on what to use. I came across the Poorboy's SSR 2 & 3, and wanted to know if I should plan on being that agressive to get rid of the holograms. Then I also found the Blackhole product, which I've read some pretty good things about. Finally, what do you reccomend as for pads for each one of the products. I'm planning on buying the lake county 5.5 pad driver, and pads to go with it.
