    I wouldn't polish a car thats been painted for quite a while, mainly because it wouldn't need it and you want the paint to fully cure before putting pressure on it.

    If you've got polisher available i'd try g10 with a waffle pad to get rid of swirls. And dump the AG deep gloss and use a good quality was like collinite

    Or you could always use 3m swirl remover for dark colours its 20 quid a litre and should be used with a machine for easier application but it dries up quickly and conatins silicone (which is good and bad depending on how you look at it)

    TBH Autoglym Super Resin is quite abrasive.

    yeah i would agree and thought using just extra gloss would be ok as its clear and more like a liquid,its been quite while since the spray recon it must be cured by now when i say fresh i would say it was done end of january
