Sonax Perfect Finish
May 15, 2015
I used this with Lake Country microfiber pads and my Rupes 21 to obtain really good results on a black Dodge Charger. To give you an idea of the type of paint it was used on, this paint is so soft I can see micro marring occur with even moderate pressure while wiping the car down. I was very happy with the results. Very good correction (maybe 85% of defects removed) and finished like a mirror. I also used a small (white) foam pad to hand polish some areas around the grill and I was surprised by how nice these areas turned out. I am a hobbyist so I work slowly and all of the curved panels, scallops, little valleys in the hood and a grill from hell (honeycomb and small surfaces everywhere) does not make this car easy to polish. I have spend hundreds (maybe thousands??) trying different combinations of pads, compounds and polishes trying to find the best way to correct the paint on this car. I am not complaining, I have had a blast experimenting, but I was so impressed by PF I wanted to share my experience with the product. While it may not be the case for you, for me, Perfect Finish and the LC MF/Rupes combo is the best I have found for this soft black paint.
Pros:Very effective. Easy to use for someone with relatively little experience. No dusting and I thought it was easy to clean the panel after each pass. Excellent finish/shine.
Cons:I have not done the math to do an A/B comparison to other products I have used but generally it seems fairly expensive.
