Default Suggestions for 2-step detail on Tuxedo Black Metallic paint

Hello folks.

I'm about to detail the Tuxedo Black Metallic roof on my Flex but I need some suggestions first. My dilemma is which 2-step products to use. I have:

1. Power Polish and Power Wax
2. Finishing Polish 08712 (plus wax of my choice)
3. Foam Pad Polish 83432 (plus wax of my choice)

I usually use Reflection Wax and Top Coat. The paint still has some protection left on it but has a bit of swirling. I have a PC RA and various pads.

Another option is for me to clay bar and then do a single step with Carnauba Cleaner Wax liquid.

Please advise, especially on the difference between the two Professional products above. Thanks!

08712 Finishing Polish is a consumer size version of 83432 Foam Pad Polish.

So, I'd go with that and then a wax. As easy as they are to use, Reflections Wax + Top Coat would be my choice.

Thanks for the clarification, Forrest. I did the Pro polish and Reflections Wax.
