It is just a matter of finding that combo!

As for scratches around the door handle where the PC buffer cannot get at,
I used the orange pad side of German Polish 'N Wax Applicator (from a mega applicator kit that I had bought on ebay) for a similar problem and it did a pretty
good job with 105 applied by hand. Happy detailing!
^Thanks!

Re: How can I improve my detailing?

If it's too deep on the bumper, you're kinda stuck with that. The light spider webbing and key marks are just a matter of the right pad/polish. I've got the 3" pads and although tight they fit under the door handle, you just can't get much oomph on them to actually polish. I use a cotton"terry" pad for that sometimes too, then go to a foam pad, and sometimes the wife has to hold the handle open while i work the scratches, then "fill" them in with a glaze because I know she can't manage to open a door without somehow having her fingernails touch the paint, but I seem to be able to. Thank good for the keyless go though, that way the keys stay safe in her purse away from the car. You'll get it. I find myself finding new ways of doing things and trying stuff out, some I'm like, wow that's awesome, but I've also had a couple Oh sh$t! moments too. Detailedimage "how to" and "ask a pro" are your friend, lots of great info, and sometimes just a product review will give you all the ins/outs of how to apply and so on that you need. Keep on keeping on brother.
