Best tool in the box
August 26, 2014
I recently purchased these pads. First I tried them out on the hood of my Black 2000 Ford Expedition. This truck saw its first year in a garage and then 13 years in the sun with a yearly wax. Tons of abuse. I was so pleased with the results. On my Ford I used Megs M105.
A few days later I worked on a Mercedes. This car was a 2008 that only had a few swirls and an owner that all good cars should have. I can die and I doubt I will ever get a better customer who shows more respect for his car and the people who work on them. He had some paint chips that could have been done better, and factory plastic film by the rear wheels that looked real bad. I took the 3” pad with my DeWALT and RUPES Zephir Gloss Coarse Compound. The results were GREAT. I would have loved to have done the whole car with these pads and the DeWALT, however I don’t think my client’s heart could have taken it. The site of the rotary caused him much concern. He had seen rookie detailer’s damage before. This was our first meeting, and I am hoping he will let me go over the whole car again with the goal of removing the orange peel and coating it with Modesta BC-04.
The following day I worked on a Honda that had been wrecked. The front clip had been replaced. The paint had been done outside. I think the only time the car had seen a garage is when it was driven by one. The deck lid was dull, the roof was dull. The new front clip was full of nibs. Seven hours later this car look fantastic, beyond what I thought I could achieve. This time I used Megs D300 followed up with D301 and Megs Microfiber polishing pads.
In summation if you have not tried these pads you need to. If you lack the experience then go the junk yard get some hoods and restore them. Please remember to speak AutoGeek.
