Quoted from Flipper_McGavin:

I think it's more likely the Ultimate compound is leaving the tiny swirl marks because compound is considered an abrasive, and your microfiber is absorbing the compound that was left in those tiny crevices, making it look like it's the towel causing it. I would treat it like the clear coat of a vehicle. You want to use a polish afterwards because that removes the swirls left by the compound.

I did the best I could with the Ultimate Compound. I tried it all over again by hand and pressed significantly harder than the first time. Showed some improvement, still think it could look better. I’m giving it a day then I’ll use the polisher.

That Ultimate compound is ok I guess, but you should still follow it up with your polish. It'll polish out the fine scratches left by the compound.

I use Meguire's 105 followed by Meguire's 205 with a DA for a mirror finish.

Yeah, stick with the 105 and 205. If you have a Harbor Freight nearby you can get it there. Pro quality stuff.....

So I have a retheme that I’m doing and it’s time to clear coat. I’m probably going to do this for just this one pin. I have the cans of SprayMax but I need the mask/respirator and the bunny suit. Can someone recommend which ones to buy? Like I said, I probably won’t do this again so I’m hoping to not spend too much money.

I don’t know if anyone responded to your question. On page 17 of this thread is a lot of safety discussion and some links. I have ordered the system below after the vendor promised I could get extra lengths of tube. My plan is rather than rely on the filter I will put the filter outside the paint booth. Unfortunately it won’t come until August. I will post my results

I wish I could give a recommendation for what to purchase. Unfortunately, respirators of any kind are nearly impossible to find. Although I have far more time on my hands this year, my refinishing projects have been placed on hold completely because I can't do them safely.

As an aside, respirators intended to protect the wearer from construction debris and solvent vapours do not prevent the spread of Covid-19, as exhalation air is not filtered. That unfortunately hasn't prevented people from panic purchasing. That means that people who need them for their (essential) work in construction and manufacturing can no longer obtain them, and this is part of why supply chains have been impacted. If you use a construction respirator or a disposable half-mask with an exhalation valve, understand that wearing it will not prevent the spread of the virus. When in public indoors, you should instead wear a cloth mask, non-surgical paper mask, or other disposable mask that does not have an exhalation valve. The intent for wearing a mask to prevent viral spread is not so that it filters the air you breathe in, but so that any virus-laden moisture that you exhale is trapped in your own mask. The more people that wear masks, the less transmission that will occur. This is not a political statement; it is a fact.

During this time of supply shortages, I would suggest that we refrain from leisure projects requiring any purchase of new respiratory PPE so that the limited professional-grade equipment can go to production workers in the construction and manufacturing industries whose work has been deemed essential. Currently, they are being forced to work without PPE around crystalline silica, asbestos, and solvent fumes without response from authorities who would normally assist workers in refusing unsafe conditions. Those workers are facing a difficult choice between their lives and their livelihoods, and recognizing that, we can decide not to compound the problem further.

I was on board until this piece, the company I work for just ordered an extremely large number of masks with no problem for just one department out of 100s of areas also ordering. Professional construction, medical, and essential companies have access to PPE from distributors way sooner than the general public sees when it trickles down to walmart shelves and amazon. If people are being "forced" to work around those hazards, then thats an issue with their management or union to address. People in those jobs arent shopping for their crews PPE online or in public big box stores. The 15 people in our hobby that spray a few cans of clear a year arent putting professional workers in dangerous situations.

It might be different from region to region. Where I am, the three industrial safety suppliers in town (the capital of Canada, pop 1M+, not a backwater) have been unable to source any half or full mask respirators since April for any of the ~200 industry employers in my group. They have faced everything from border seizures to counterfeiting. We've been able to get dodgy chinese disposable "KN95" dust masks for about a month now but that's about it. I'm speaking from experience.

If you have access to respirators and cartridges (OV/N95) where you are, please post the supplier name here. I would like to contact them. I am worried about my colleagues.

It’s a very tough time and I completely understand the trouble that doctors and first responders are having with the supply and demand for respirators.

I have decided and already purchased a full face swim mask and a tyvek clean suit from Amazon. I will connect a long breathing tube to the mask and the open end will be located outside my spraying tent. The total for the mask and suit is about $40.
I don’t plan on staying in the spraying tent very long. I got the idea from a video showing a doctor who made his own respirator using a full face swim mask. He was able to attach a filter to it using a 3D printed adapter. I hope everyone is safe!

Breathing through a long tube is difficult. I hope it works for you! I am trying a similar system in the next couple of days. I will post a report
