That's better polish than the "car polish" I was talking about. When most mention "Rubbing compound" they mean the paste junk that comes in a flat metal container for 8 bucks or so. The stuff you used is detail-type polish and fairly close to the Colortone products. The cloth spinners are ok but create an awful lot of swirls if you're not extremely careful - and I don't suggest the sponge pads ever. I you are going to do much finishing you'll get far better (and faster!) results from a cheap bench-mount buffer with cloth wheels. Harbor Freight sells them. The caveats with any buffing wheel is to use only ONE compound on any wheel and change them fairly often. The ones you used are shot now and will probably scratch anything else you try to use them on.
