This stuff is amazing, even for a newbie. When I used this, it was only the 2nd time I have ever polished a vehicle using a DA polisher, (Porter Cable). The first time I polished my truck with the DA, I used Klasse AIO with a Green Lake Country CCS pad, and it left horrible hazing behind. I was freaking out because this was on a BRAND NEW, 2012 black Toyota Tundra CrewMax. After doing a ton of research, I finally decided to try SF-4500 with a gray Lake Country CCS pad after using a Pinnacle Ultra soft Clay bar followed by a 4:1 diluted IPA distilled water solution, and I was absolutely astonished at the results to say the least. After using the SF-4500, I applied a coat of Duragloss Clear Coat Polish #111. It looks better than it did the day I brought it home from the dealership when it had only 8 miles on it. BTW, the dealership is the one that caused the surface scratch problem to begin with when they applied their "super" coating that was supposed to be scratch resistant and protect against bird dung, which it did neither. What a waste of $800!! I guess, during their application, they either dropped the applicator pad and continued to use it, but either way, I had surface scratches ALL OVER the truck. I was embarrassed to drive it!! Thanks to Menzerna SF-4500 and several hours of work, my truck looks flawless, with the deepest, darkest, wettest looking finish I have seen. Had a family member tell me it looked like a friggin mirror!! I would have to agree! FANTASTIC product. Worth every penny!
