    I did a two stage yesterday and it was all pukka. My advice would be:

    1. Ensure that the car is fully dry
    2. Don't polish in direct sunlight
    3. Do one panel at a time and buff off once applied, don't wait for it to dry!
    4. Make sure your cloth is clean.

    I use a good cotton terry towel to remove the bulk, continually turning as you go and then an Ultimate wipe for the final buffing and little bits.

    There should be no streaking / swirls etc. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif
