      Yesterday I received Meg's Scratch X 2.0 and tried in the evening. I hand applied and see very minor change in the scratch area.
      I've never used this before.
      What i did was,

      * washed the car
      * applied pre wax cleaner to remove the existing Collinite
      * applied the scratchX by foam applicator

      I've not tried through the rotary polisher, but this is a very small area.

      Fordfan, anything I am missing?

      am assuming that you are using the yellow foam applicator right?

      Apply a little more on the applicator than you would apply for machine polishing and start polishing with medium to high pressure and fast movements in cross hatch pattern, up and down side to side, till your arms feel like they will fall off, ...wipe off and repeat if required

      if its a light scratch visible at certain angle of light then probably scratchX will remove it...something like UC with a higher cut may give better result by hand for deeper swirls and harder paint

      machine polishing is much easier and the same scratchX by rotary will cut more and cut faster than by hand

      ScratchX 2.0 has SMAT compounds. Which mean their size goes down after a while of rubbing. When you feel that the compound on the pad feels smooth and not at all grainy, wipe and inspect. If the scratch persists, repeat.

      fordfan,

      Will post the pics tomorrow.

      Now this is my question.. Please move it to Detailing doubts section if needed.

      I have the following products available with me now: Megs up, UQW & QD, collinite 845 & 850, Notorious's Mistery clay bar & ONR. Eagle one vinyl protector/Dashboard cleaner, Eagle one Glass cleaner

      Current State of the car: It has a layer of Collinite 845, and received ONR QD once in two weeks. It has lot of swirl marks, couple of scratches on the bonnet and door. It has also got some tiny black dots on the roof and bonnet.

      Following is the detailing sessions Planned:

      1. Wash with ONR
      2. Clay the Car with ONR QD. should this be followed by wash again?
      3. Polish with UP
      4. Apply Megs Ultimate QW
      5. Apply two layers of collinite 845. back to back will be ok?
      6. Apply Megs QD. Is this needed?
      7. Apply Collinite 850 to all nuts and Alloys and polish it
      8. Interiors: Vacum and clean the seats and dashboard Eagle one dashboard spray.

      Maintain by ONR was and Megs QD/Eagle one Wash and Wipe once in two weeks.

      Is this procedure correct?

      I am not planning anything for the tires now. Also dont have anything for the black vinyl parts. Have to buy something.

      I've asked some query on the Thread: GH Meguiar's Group Buy (Huge Discount!) ***Foam Applicators Pricing Update - Dec 04th, 2012***

      Kindly change it, if I've wrongly posted.

      Nope..slightly wrong there ...

      It's SMAT yes but the particles don't break down and remains same size...So you can stop polishing any time unlike a DAT polish... MEGS 105 205 UC UP ScratchX Color etc are all SMAT... Don't remember about D151

      DAT polishes is what breaks down and becomes smooth hence perfect for rotary and zenith curve technique
