Wolfgang Rupes LHR 15ES Ultimate Polishing Kit
The Rupes LHR 15ES reminds me of my favorite drop-top Ferrari– the California. Like the Ferrari California, the Rupes LHR 15ES is conservatively handsome and loves to work hard. Both machines are engineering marvels and will always make you come back for more. While I don’t always have access to a Ferrari California (my neighbor finally cut me off), I can get my hands on a Rupes LHR 15ES and my favorite set of Wolfgang polishing compounds any time I’d like, so I decided to assemble what is undoubtedly the best Rupes LHR 15ES polishing kit available – the Wolfgang Rupes LHR 15ES Ultimate Polishing Kit.
What’s the big deal about the Rupes LHR 15ES? For one, it’s an Italian-bred workhorse that was designed from the get-go to remove paint imperfections, like swirl marks and oxidation. Secondly, it does so without breaking a sweat, especially when paired with Lake Country Hydro-Tech foam pads and Wolfgang’s most versatile pair of swirl-destroying polishing compounds, Uber Compound and Finishing Glaze. Throw in a couple essential polishing accessories like the nifty Foam Pad Conditioning Brush, Wolfgang Pad Werks pad care products and a handful of microfiber towels, and you have the Wolfgang Rupes LHR 15ES Ultimate Polishing Kit….the perfect marriage of German and Italian ingenuity. A German/Italian relationship has never been this good. Enjoy!
The Wolfgang Rupes LHR 15ES Ultimate Polishing Kit includes:
|Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher
The Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher is the smoothest running random orbital polisher available. Like a fine Italian sports car, the Rupes LHR 15ES features remarkable engineering and exquisite craftsmanship; the ergonomics along with fit and finish on the LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher are superb. The soft-start system guarantees an acceleration ramp to prevent accidental dispersion of your compound and polish while the electronic feedback control maintains constant speed in all applications.
|Wolfgang Uber Compound 3.0
Wolfgang Uber Compound is a heavy-cut compound that is designed to restore the gloss and color to all paint systems without creating unsightly swirls or compounding haze. Formulated using an advanced blend of micro and diminishing abrasives, Wolfgang Uber Compound effortlessly removes heavy swirl marks, oxidation, water spots, and etchings from bird droppings without dulling the finish or creating new swirl marks.
|Wolfgang Finishing Glaze 3.0
Wolfgang Finishing Glaze 3.0 is a water-based emulsion with ultra fine diminishing abrasives that gently polish the paint to a brilliant gloss. Compounding swirls, mild oxidation, and water spots disappear to reveal glassy smooth, beautiful paint. Underneath a wax or sealant, the paint radiates with energy and gloss.
|Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0
Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0 features fortified polymer technology. Wolfgang’s German Super Polymers are fortified with more dirt-repelling power to keep your vehicle cleaner and shinier, longer. Our enhanced super polymers have an amazing anti-static property that repels water, oil, dust, and road grime to provide unsurpassed paint protection. Your vehicle stays cleaner because foreign molecules literally slide off the clear polymer coating. Super polymers bond easily to automotive paint and form an extensive cross-linked polymer network. This clear shield eliminates surface tension so contaminants have no foothold on your vehicle. Your vehicle will have a deep gloss and unbeatable protection for months.
|(2) 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Cyan Advanced Cutting Foam
The blue foam is designed for compounding and swirl removal. This closed cell pre-polymer foam restores oxidized and heavily swirled paint. Looks can be deceiving; the blue pad looks coarse but actually finishes with no marring. You'll achieve an almost wax-ready finish in one step. That's another way the Lake Country Hydro-Tech 5.5 Inch Foam Pads save you time.
|(2) 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Tangerine Ultra Polishing Foam
The tangerine foam is made for light to moderate defect removal and polishing. It has the cutting power just below that of the Lake Country orange light cutting pad, and the tangerine pad leaves a finish like you'd achieve with a gray finishing pad.
|(1) 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Crimson Finishing Foam
The crimson foam is designed to apply waxes, glazes, and sealants in flawless, even coats without causing swirls. The soft foam has very light polishing ability, making it a great choice for cleaner waxes, too. Since the crimson pad is made of Hydro-Tech foam, it does not soak up liquid waxes and paint sealants like some finishing pads can. You'll be able to cover more paint with less product.
|(2) Microfiber Bonnets
Each bonnet is made of the softest blend of microfiber available! Strong, durable polyester makes up 70 percent while soft, silky polyamide makes up the other 30 percent. Incredibly small fibers are woven together in a split weave that softer, thicker, and plusher than flat weave microfibers. These bonnets fit comfortably over any of the included 5 1/2 inch Hydro-Tech foam pads.
|16 oz. Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Cleaner
Cleaning your pads removes all kinds of chemicals that have been embedded into them during the buffing process. This can include all types of solvents, carrying agents, abrasives, petroleum distillates, silicones, chemical cleaners and other nasty substances. Removing the liquids and the solids that build up both on and inside of your buffing pads preserves their integrity.
|16 oz. Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Conditioner
Brand new pads and dry, clean used pads tend to be more stiff and coarse until they break-in. Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Conditioner accelerates the break-in time to bring the pad up to maximum buffing performance. Using Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Conditioner on a fresh pad ensures maximum performance from the pad and the polish or compound. Its advanced lubricating agents enable compounds to work longer and polish to wipe off easier.
|Foam Pad Conditioning Brush
The Edge Foam Pad Conditioning Brush removes excess, caked polish and restores the usable texture to your foam pads in seconds. An angled handle and textured grip give you excellent leverage as you press the brush against a spinning pad. Don’t stop working – clean the pad and keep polishing!
|2 Microfiber Detailing Towels, 16 x 16 inches
These versatile microfiber towels are great for any variety of detailing tasks, from general washing and scrubbing off road contaminants, to applying and buffing off wax and all-in-one protectants. All the Cobra Detailing Towels boast an 80/20 polyester/polyamide blend in a special “feather” weave that increases their absorption properties, guaranteeing high performance and durability.
