Best combination

anyone know what the best combination of stage 1, 2 and 3 is to use? A friend told me there's a specific combo of products (such as meguiar's stage 1 mothers stage 2 and a zymoil stage 3). any help would be appreciated!

its not just about the compound its what kind of pad you use. i HIGHLY SUGGEST you don't take a rotary to you car and do s 3 step paint correction. im am saying this because you obviously don't have experience with compounds and a proper machine. in the end you can burn trim burn thru your clear coat...and if you so attainment about doing it yourself i highly recommend you do your research watch video's ect.

I agree with the comment about the rotary above. My personal understanding of the multi-stage waxes are this:

Stage 1 is normally a cleaner to remove old wax and oxidation.
Stage 2 is swirl remover.
Stage 3 is a polish and wax.

You can mix and match products from various lines. If you go in this order you should be safe. My process is a bit shorter though.

Klasse All in One
3M Paint Sealant

With a wash and clay bar first of course and everything is done by hand.
