Is the filler in the compound or polish? I buffed a truck but held off on polishing and I can see certain areas came back after a couple weeks of sitting there and more swirls than I saw before. I'm assuming it's in the compound AND probably in the filler.

I'm assuming since I've only buffed with 3m than buffing with a non filler compound will take longer? I'm ok with that.

They probably both have some oil/filler so that you get beautiful results quickly, the only problem is that it's temporary. Have you used Sure Finish? It's an excellent compound/polish that has very little lubricant and (when used correctly) gives you beautiful results that last.

I'll mention it to the boss. It's not the first time it happened. I've used lights and everything to detect scratches and the haze just reappears.

Len, is a 1500 scratch suitable for sure finish?

You really need to wash it real good after buffing.
Most compounds have glaze that will hide fine scratches.
But it usually washes out real easy.
Also keep in mind, once sanded, the paint will shrink a lot more
if it isn't thoroughly cured

I use to stop and 1500 then polish with Sure Finish but I've found it quicker and easier to sand with 1500 then 3000 Trizact THEN polish.
