Compound, Level 9, Perfect-It II by 3M, 5973, 32oz

Less aggressive compound.  Perfect-It II compound will remove 1200 to 1500 grit sanding marks.  Use with a wool pad or 3M's Perfect-It Foam Compounding Pad 05723 ("1") and follow with Finesse-It II 5996 ("2") on a foam pad.  A third step may be chosen which will add gloss and fill/hide any remaining swirl mark that just doesn't seem to want to come out.  The Hand (Finish) Glaze 5990 is great for this and designated step number "3"

Available in a gallon as 05974

The Doctor recommends using this product when there is very little gloss left to your finish.
