    A clay bar removes above surface contaminants. A compound and polish removes below surface contaminants (swirls and scratches)

    I've never been able to get the really wet look on my cars with silver & white paint. The closest is getting the metallic to sparkle in the paint & I'm satisfied with that look.
    This is true. Polishing brightens up the paint on silver and white.

    I would as well.

    By the way you should be able to upload photos into your gallery and add them into your post. Another option is hosting them on another site like photobucket.
