Alex has recommended the Poorboys to me too, i have a bottle of SSR2 on the way.

If you dont have any visible swirl marks or the like then SSR1 should be OK, he says its as gentle as a cleanser but it doesnt contain any waxes or fillers etc so is good if your using something like diamond brite afterwards.

Shame I wont be able to use mine till nect weekend, never mind [:)]

Would be nice to have SSr3, SSr2 and SSr3 with an orbital polisher and spend a whole day getting those swirls out for good. There must be only so much you can do by hand.

- hmm got me thinking!

I didn't think you could use it as a polish.. I was gonna use my ssr2 this weekend then use some deep crystal over that, then the P21 on top of that.. perhaps i'll just use the ssr2 instead.

The SSR range by nature is a polish, you use a polish to rid marks from the paint as it is a mild abrasive.. The wax or handglaze will then protect the paint by covering it...

So you are totally right to use your deep crystal and P21 on top, thats the best thinkg to do!

Otherwise your paint is left unprotected! eek

So I use the SSR2, then the deep crystal, then the P21 or leave out the deep crystal stage ? I hope so, else I'll go and buy some.. not got any deep crystal yet and it'll save me buying it if I don't really need it.

I have also been speaking to Alex at serious performance and he has also recommended

1. SSR2

2. Diamond Brite (which i have already)

3. Poorboys EX

And as soon as i have found my cheque book i will be ordering - i wish he took other payment methods though!

I thought megs 3 stage was

1. Cleanse

2. Polish

3 Wax

Smithjoe- for polish to remove swirls it seems SSR2 is a good choice, suppose you could use SSR1 afterwards, but i've been told that 2 is still quite mild.
