Since I don’t currently have to drive the SSEi anywhere, I started doing a paint correction on it. Just slowly working a panel at a time. Happy with the results. The paint was still shiny, just full of those little micro-scratches. Hitting it with a DA buffer, a microfiber cutting pad, and some compound and the results are amazing. And I don’t have a clue what I’m doing!

Ha! Kinda looks like the picture below...

Paint looks great.
I don't believe "you don't know what you are doing".
I have seen people use DA sanders and create all kinds of swirl marks.
Love the shine.
What works for me on my cars is the Mothers 17240 speed clay bar 2.0.(used with Mothers California Gold Detailer)
After that I used Meguiar's 2.0 tech wax.
The clay really smooth things out and the wax really made it shine.
