Questions about massive detail project and product application???

I have a good deal of cars to detail in the upcoming weeks. The colors range from Titanium Silver (good condition), Black (bad condition / swirls, scratches, etc), Silver (scratches), Dark Champagne “Grigio Nuvolari” (light swirls), and Light Champagne (scratches, swirls).

I’ve already purchased a 7336 PC, ordered the Sonus DAS pads and claybar, and 128 oz of PB SS2.5.

Every car will be washed with Dawn, then claybared using dawn as the lubricant. My question is after that what should I use on the cars for my next step?? I will definitely be using the PB 2.5 polish on the cars with scratches, and heavy swirls. What do you recommend for the Titanium silver which is in good condition, and the Dark Champagne which is slightly worse with light swirl marks?

Also to finish off the process I want to use Zaino, but I’m not sure as to which products I should be using. Z-2 Pro with ZFX?

Also which pads do you recommend for application and removal of the various products?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might want to grab some PB SSR 1.0 to follow the 2.5... As far as Zaino goes, im not too saavy on their product line. I like the Moose Glazes.

For cars with more scratches, I would try using a "cutting pad".
