I'm sure Ive done something wrong, but my Jeep looks great one year later, with only one clay treatment and Wet Diamond sealant done in the Fall. Still appears to be protecting and water sheets off beautifully, which to me is a big deal... (It keeps use the drying towel to a minimum)
Honestly, I see no problem here at all. You attacked the problem without compound,and a polisher which makes sense. Opti Seal is not a bad choice either.
