I'll step in with two points.

You say wet pad for the Meguiars 205 polish? The pad only needs a very light spray of distilled water or you will have polish everywhere :evil:

There is no need to go through so many speeds with the DA when applying Black Hole. Your treating it like a polish when it's just a filler glaze. Speed 4 or 5 will do the trick, then just buff off. I take it you are using a DA machine and not a rotary :?:

Mike Phillips knows :cool:

By the way the upload for photos does not work on the forum. You have to use a site like Photobucket or the like http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/forum/vie ... =20&t=6977
