Would a medium-heavy cut polish not be a bit overkill on paint that should have minimal swirls or marring? Seems more like something for use on a car that has a few K under its belt
Hi,
Yes, I was under the same impression as you, but from reading and advice I went with the above combo.
Apparently If using S20, no need black pads ( Soft hex ), because with medium pad ( Green Hex ), S20 will finish down perfectly without the need for a second stage.

Ah fair enough, I have a bottle of Sonax 04-06 which seems a similar sort of product to the S20 albeit a bit less agressive, will have a look at adding a few more pads to the selection (yellow, orange and white currently, first 2 are cutting pads rather than polishing)

Sonax 04-06 is an excellent one step polish as well,
I always loved using the hex green pads.
As you say, Yellow and Orange would be a bit harsh on a new car, The white I feel would be too soft.

Guys I want to give a shout out for Anachem stuff. The stuff is great and anyone who I know uses it loves it. Their fallout remover is like a gel and sticks for ages. The hydra clean is like a rainx style stuff without the faff. Got to know the guy who sells it and he’s a decent person and very helpful. All PH neutral so won’t strip waxes. Want to check it out Anachem-automotive.com give me a shout if you want to know more.
