The Final Polish
Meguiar’s Microfiber Cutting Disks
Chemical Guy’s Hexlogic Foam Pads
Poorboy’s Black Hole Glaze
Finishing Polish: The Last Polish
This is my favourite polish to help refine the paintwork after claying or compounding. It really creates a mirror shine and brings out the gloss. Plus it’s really easy to work with in all temperatures, doesn’t dust and buffs off nice and easily.

Compound: Scholl S17+
This works well when I need a bit more cut. In some cases, this refines well enough to work as a one step, but on other paints I find that following up with a finishing polish is necessary.

Microfiber Pads: Meguiar’s Microfiber Cutting Disks
These are what I use on paintwork that needs a bit more attention. Microfiber has a higher level of cut to it than foam, so I like to use it on heavily swirled clear coats. The Microfiber Cutting Disks come in packs of two, and are really great value.

Foam Pads: Chemical Guy’s Hexlogic Pads
These are a great alternative to microfiber pads. Again, they’re very durable and excellent quality. They come in a variety of sizes and cutting abilities. Personally, I have 4 types. The blue finishing pad, white polish pad, orange medium-heavy cutting pad, and the yellow for heavy cutting.

Glaze: Poorboy’s Black Hole
If you want a mirror finish, but don’t want to remove any clear coat, then you can use a glaze for a temporary fix. Glazes cover and fill minor clear coat scratches and swirl marks in a car’s paintwork, giving it a glossier appearance, but without cutting away paint like polishes do.
My favourite glaze is called Blackhole by a brand called Poorboy’s. It’s incredibly easy to apply and remove and does an excellent job of filling in minor clear coat scratches and swirls. Plus it smells pretty nice too! Keep in mind that it’ll only fill in minor imperfections, you’ll need to use an abrasive to remove heavier ones.
