I use Lake Country pads on a Girot's Garage G9 Random Orbital polisher. I really like Griot's BOSS Correcting Cream and BOSS Finishing Sealant. I use the correcting cream on a Lake Country blue pad and the finishing sealant on a black pad. If your swirls are deeper, you can use a green pad with the correcting cream for more cutting ability.
Agree. Griots makes great stuff.

That blue looks amazing. I've been doing a lot of reading lately on graphene coatings, probably too much...I'm leaning towards this Adam's stuff for my new Ram.
I'll be using it on mine soon. I also did my wife's crosstrek and it's night and day how much the color pops now.

I use the porter cable polisher, chemical guys hex logic pads. On hand, I have Meguiars Mirror Glaze compound, polish, and sealant. Picking up my truck tomorow and have the stuff to do Adam's Ceramic Coat. I inherited my grandfather's tools (he worked as an autobody mechanic), so I have ALOT of air polishers, old wool pads, professional compounds. Definitely too scared to use that stuff hahaha At least my stuff is somewhat idiot proof. 😁

I use mostly Buff and Shine pads these days, but also use a few Meg’s foam pads. I run Flex buffers, and the majority of the products I use are Menzerna, or Sonax.

I have applied ceramic to both of my RAM's and I used griots pads and a handful of products. I really liked the griots orange/black and microfiber cutting pads. As for compound I use griots compound and sonax perfect finish for the polish. Meguiars 105 compound is also a solid product. I also found a drill bit attachment kit with 3" pads that are really nice to use on fenders, mirrors and any other areas that wont fit a full size 5-6" pad.
