Final Step HELP

My previous detail was SIP on a Lake County Orange, followed by 106FA on a LC white pad, and ended using Klasse AIO followed by Jetseal 109, then P21S carnuba wax. I was happy with it, but felt the depth of shine could have been better, so I am to the point now where I would have used the Klasse AIO.

Ok, so here is my question... I want to avoid any synthetics or acrylics this time and I was curious if Klasse AIO has any acrylic in it? If it does, then is it so minimal that it won't affect the depth of the carnuba (using P21s)? If it does, then the only choice I have as a finishing process is 106FA on a blue pad before carnuba wax. Do you guys feel like that is sufficient to jewel the paint? If not, is there an "over the counter" product I can use so I can finish the detail.

Klasse is an acrylic based product.

I like using Klasse AIO or PoliSeal to lay a foundation for a carnauba waxes. I would jewel the paint with a blue pad and 106FA or get PO85 and then hit it with Klasse AIO. Hope this helps

So you think I will not lose any depth by hitting it with the Klasse AIO?

What speed/pressure do you recommend on the Flex with the 106FA to jewel?

That final polish (jewel) should be done with just the weight of the Flex, if that much.

What speed do you recommend? Should I still aim for the 1 inch/second and two direction pattern using in polishing?

I'm not how everyone else jewels paint, but I start slow and work up to speed 5 and then go back down to speed 1.
