I am almost certain Hamza is a Pro. There are several Pro(s) and semi-Pro(s) that populate this forum.

Once the defects are properly removed (not masked), they don't come back unless they are being induced by future events...mostly from improper maintenance.

He is just looking for business. He has had 2 posts in the last 2 years, doesn't drive a BMW so why is he here, and has his email as his username.

I think you are referring to Bob. His sense of humor takes a bit to get use to. I once told him that reading his post at times is like watching "Masterpiece Theatre" on PBS... I know they are speaking english but I have no idea what they are talking about.

Definitely has an extremely weird sense of humor. I literally have no idea what I'm reading in his posts. What goes on in that guys mind?

Wow thanks for the video And pics really helpfull! looks great well my swirl marks are almost as bad . My question is when u do the first step do u wipe it off and do the next step? Or pass the machine again over the first step. I ask cause I only saw him wipe off when he was done. Did it get rid of the swirl marks completely?

Leave the first step on, remove with microfiber after the second step. It will remove all swirl marks completely.

Check out chapters 8-10

There is much much better stuff than Adam's on the market. Menzerna and Sonax to name 2 of them.

I use setting 5-6 on the Flex. I think the Flex cuts faster then the PC. It's more for the guys doing detailing on daily basis. The Cylco is also a very nice polisher for the weekend detailer.

Check out the Adams forums lots of good right ups and info. Adam's has daily specials, so gives you chance to pick up products at a decent price.
