I plan on using UC on my wife's 2008 Scion TC painted in Sizzling Crimson Mica.
I'm not sure what kind of paint this is (hard/soft) but its factory paint, metallic base and clear coat. I'll be using a Harbor Freight 7" rotary polisher on its lowest setting for this. Here are my questions:
How many passes does UC require (using overlapping passes of course) I've seen some users use one pass while in other videos they've gone over 2-3 times which made me wonder about the product drying.
Also, if the product dries, can it cause unwanted scratches? I tested a small spot with the rotary and no pressure in what I thought was cool weather and it seemed to dry very quickly and became difficult to remove with the microfiber. Checking in sunlight the next day revealed what appears to be light marring generally in line with the passes of the pad. Any ideas?
Finally, what pad is generally recommended to be used with UC and my Rotary. I was thinking the Meguiars yellow buffing pad.
