Hey guys, wondering this step here, when you mention first the normal polishing pad, then w/ a foam cutting pad, do you mean I would apply the #2 Fine-Cut Cleaner with the polishing pad first, then apply the #2 again with the foam cutting pad? or am I getting it wrong? any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks! aight peace
Hey, I can field this one.
When using any CUTTING compound, you want to use a CUTTING pad. Use the foam cutting pads with cutting compounds because the cutting pad gives that safe-extra abrasiveness you want.
After those steps, you move on to the Polishing and Waxing stages- in which you then want a gentler pad - - i.e. a Polishing pad.
You're going to use a cutting pad with #2 finer cut cleaner, and if you need a little more abrasiveness for larger imperfections, step it up to #1 med. cut cleaner.
Oh, DrunkenMonkey - if you're ever down in New Orleans - hit me up. I definitely owe you a great meal at one of NOLA's world renowned restaurants.
The last 14 months at AAC really taught me a lot about paint work, and clearcoat. This little thread just made everything else that much more perfect.
Oh, and my customers LOVE IT! + rep ... hit me up if you're ever down here.
Wow, nice tutorial... I know a handful of people on this site have show cars, but I'm sure there are people like me who don't own a buffing unit. Any advice to achieve similar results? I know Meguiar's has cleaner/polish/wax set (doesn't require a unit), input? I usually hand wash/wax every week, clay bar every few months, but nothing this serious. Anything in between what I'm doing right now and buying a unit, to achieve a little better results?
Any input from the OP or any other members is welcome.
