Would it be good and ok to go over it 3 times with the compound?

That is looking good. I say if you have some bad spots no problem compounding more. The Finesse It is really going to bring back the shine as the compound leaves the gel a bit hazy.

As for the textured surface on top that stuff is a pain but you can still compound and polish you just really have to work it in different directions to get around all of the texture.

I also have some 3m imperial hand glaze. Could this be used anywhere in the steps?

I'm not familiar with it.

Any good carnuba wax will do the trick. After polishing I would not use a cleaner wax.

Here is after 2 passes with compound and 1 pass with the Finesse it in just the back right area only with the polish. What do you think? Man that Finesse it is a little more time consumming as it likes to stay wet longer. I have a 12 dollar foam pad from the parts store. Is this ok to use or should I buy a 3m pad?

You need a wool pad, you will be amazed at how fast it cuts compared to the foam. Foam will not do what you are looking for...

The wool will take you from this...


To this with some time and effort, clean that pad ALOT between passes...



Be patient it will come back, and please when you get the look you want immediately seal the area with wax to prevent your newly exposed area from oxidizing again.

I used a wool pad with the 3m compound. Are you saying use wool with the finesse it as well? Mine is pretty bad. I compounded it 2 times and I am going to start polishing with a foam pad and finesse it II.
