    Clear coat on a red car is the same color as clear coat on a black car. Polish the paint to get the best shine. Wax will do minimal work. Everything is in the prep.

    Use an excessive amount of lube when using the clay disc. If it does mar the paint, at least you have a polisher to fix it.

    I agree with claying the car first.
    If it's medium scratches and swirls then I'd go with the orange pad. You'll need more than one pad though to do the whole car.

    Even ceramic coatings will not FULLY protect against bird poop, so I wouldn't blame it on the product. Bird droppings need to be washed away within 24 hours or else they will etch the clear coat. ...

    Polishing a car by hand with so many tools available is ludicrous, especially if this is going to be a business. The paint won't be as uniform by hand and you will end up using more product. Get a...

    A couple more angles. I went to pick up another car and saw he parked it outside of his shop. Pic doesn't do justice. That thing glistened in the sun.

    If the coating evens out the paintwork then I'm confused why a glaze would be necessary. Many coating manufacturers advise against adding anything on top, so this is new to me.

    SS6 is more like the last step. I'd be worried about the BL compromising the longevity of SS6, or even being able to adhere since it's in the glaze family. If you have a need to top the SS6, I'd...
