Scratches after polishing

Not sure whatís going on but Iím doing more damage then good.
Using brand new Meguiars aplicator pads
Applying Juice swirl remover with one pad and AutoGlym with another and removal with bran new micro fibres from Costco.
No matter how hard or soft I apply it, Iím always ending up with scratches and swirls ?

Any suggestions?

You need a buffer. Heat is what removes imperfections in paint. Also have you used a clay bar before?

Orbital buffer or buffer(your preference) and use a glaze before swirl removal, apply and buff off and use a final prep to remove any residue. Then start applying swirl remover and buff off. Then spray final prep or speed prep to wipe off residue between coats. The final prep will help to not scratch before wax is applied. You need the buffer to use your products properly, your hand just canít do it. Hope this helps. Also thereís that one leg dude that has a tone of videos canít remember his name, also has a tv show. He has a tone of knowledge, only annoying part is he sells his ďbrandĒ constantly. Autogeek.net is his business

Every thing Sunday said I agree with except the application of glaze.

Those towels are great but depending on how much product you have on the paint, itís removal by using those towels is scratching. You should try using a machine first, and work the product in more, then remove with clean towels. You may also require softer towels for your paint.

Scratches after polishing

Iím not being specific with brands when I say glaze. It always starts some sort of battle. DuPonts rep is who gave me this info and I have used for years, glaze specifically fills certain scratches and swirl remover is closer to a final polish, if that makes sense. Do what ever you want!!
Edit: machine polish is what Iím talking about. Iíve always called it glaze because it says it on the bottle.

What brands of glade and orbital polisher you recommended?
Iv got a good circular polisher thatís good for taking out deep scratches I have no problems with that, itís the final cut that I always Fx#k up

I got a orbital wax attack unit but donít that thatís for polishing right ?
