Rupes 150 mm (6 inch) Blue Coarse Foam Pad
This pad is the first step in the Rupes Big Foot Polishing System. The Blue Coarse Foam Pad is very aggressive in its construction and was designed to be used with Rupes Zephir Gloss Coarse Gel Compound. This combination of pad and product, when used on the Rupes Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher, is capable of removing up to 1500 grit sanding marks on fresh paint. Swirls, light scratches, water spots and other paint imperfections will be effortlessly removed with this pad. Always follow this pad with a less aggressive pad/polish combination to maximize gloss and surface smoothness.

Unique Heavy Cut Foam
I've always liked open cell compounding foam pads, but this blue pad from Rupes has taken defect removal to a new level, especially for a foam pad. It was difficult to get used to at first. It was very stiff, and too much Zephir compound would tend to sling. Once I got used to it, the pad was a breeze to use, and easily scrubbed defects away! I start with four drops of product half way between the center hole, and the edge. Then place the pad to paint. On speed 1, with firm pressure I "prime" the pad by keeping it in place for about 15 seconds. This warms up the foam, making it more pliable. I reload with 2 drops. This is on the 6" pad/Duet to. Great cut, and finish for such an aggressive pad.
ProsCritical component to the Rupes system for heavy repair.
ConsTricky to learn how to use. Tends to wear fast when first learning how to use.
