Yep compounding, polishing and waxing is more of an art than a skill or job. Most are clueless! You want a good finish find someone who has been to Dupont, Imron or Awlgrip finishing school/training.

The use of ONE pad is a sure sign this guy is a hack. A one pad trained monkey is barely worth $3.00 per foot...
