Performs much better than expected
April 17, 2015
I am new to DIY painting and have performed my first paint job using a bargain paint gun and less than great air equipment. Needless to say there were flaws in prep and a severe case of orange peel. These pads are very high quality and very durable. The finish required several hours with a DA to hopefully recover my first paint job. These discs along with Meguiars 105 worked wonders. I actually have a deep shine and no scratches with these pads. I expect following up with foam pads and less aggressive product will bring a shine out that I thought was impossible when I started. Highly recommend this product for new painters and to address serious flaws from inferior paint tools or amateur painting skills.
For orange peel - Speed used was 4 out of 6 speed settings
Removing swirl or scratch marks for sanding - speed used was 3 out of 6 speed settings
Used 1 pad for entire car and it still has life with very little fraying except at edges.
