That is one helluva finish! The first few pics I was like he wasn't kidding when he said random, thought it was just the sky or some kind of mirror when I saw the camera.

What kind of polish do you use? By hand or buffer? Looks awesome!

Thanx. I use Porboys SSR 2.5. It cuts the clear and gets rid of all the swirls. I finished it up with Mother's Polish Step 1, Micropolishing Glaze Step 2 and then Pure Wax, Step 3.

I use a Porter Cable Random Orbital Polisher 7424XP with special pads.

It's a lot of work. I do it once a year to each of my cars (though the others don't need the Porboys SSR). We have 5 cars in the household. I get tired.

With a name like that it has to be good.

You do it once a year? Will you wear thru the clear in a few years?

LOL.

I don't use the Porboys every year, just the Mother's process. I used to use Meguiar's 3 step process but it's not sold around here any more. I used the Porboys this year since it was obvious the paint needed a good polish.

Oh and yes, they are each Mother's products.
