+1 on the Meguiar’s PlastX. It’s all I’ve ever used.

(Of course that is after all the other stuff that comes before it….sanding, smoothing etc) There are all sorts of schools of thought on that but youTube is your friend.

As an example…I now use GluBoost then light rubbing compound then PlastX and skip the micro mesh. Just quicker, less mess and the results seem to be the same. Your mileage may vary.

For more than everything you could possibly want to know about these types of finishing techniques head over to IAP. It’s the International Assn of Pen Turners and that’s all they do.

Good luck.
