Thinking about switching it up with the polishes. Been down the mcquires road. Currently with 3ms 1 2 3 system. Its not bad. On the more diff colors ex black im not crazy about the 3m swirl remover. Just wondering how farecla compares. Wanting to switch pads too. The 8 inch pads just are to much with todays contours.. atleast for me. Any recomendations on this as well would be appreciated :stoned

Farecla is very good,use g4 or g3 for heavy compounding with the farecla real lambs wool pad,finish off with g10 and the farecla foam pad.Pretty simple and easy to use.

Farecla G3 is pretty much the standard here and it certainly is a very good compound. However, it can leave a residue that can be quite difficult to remove. It seems to work best on fresh paint and struggles a bit on some of the really hard clears like those coming out of Germany. G4 is a little better, but not quite so aggressive. I use the AutoSmart Sophisticut in preference to G3 - it's no slower and polishes up to a better shine with no residue problem. Don't know if this is available in the US but the guys in the UK will know it.

The G10, I find does an adequate job on lighter colours but not really good enough on dark colours, especially black. For these I finish with Gelson T57, unquestionably the best swirl remover/polish I've ever used for dark cars.

The Farecla G1 dry compound for removing 2000 grit scratching from denibbing is exceptional. Very fast and very effective. The Farecla rep, when demonstrating the products, primed the pads with the appropriate compound.

Farecla g3 was the standard back in the day still a good enough product apart from the residue as said if it sparked or got on black plastics u needed to get it cleaned before it was dry Cus that stuff was a bitch to clean.
For hard clears they do g6 rapid I think something similar to 3m fast cut/+

I rarely use many of there products now pretty much just stick with 3m bit easier got here too because farecla rep is a tool and has been raced from just about everywhere for being to pushy when comes to selling.

the new farecla "extra" is better then the old g3 but it stinks like mr jiff the cleaning product. it also gets the panel really really hot which i dont like.

i personally like juice its australian brand but you can buy it in the states. its a one stop bottle from lambs wool to foam/finishing pad or by hand. works amazing on blacks and its waterbased so it washes off with the hose or a damp microfiber and doesn't stain plastics and rubbers.

gersons t57 is awesome stuff for a show car but its 99% fillers have u ever washed a car a few times after applying it or had it out in direct sunlight for a day? buff swirls everywhere.

hated 3m polishes there so piss weak and oily.

Ah, but the secret is to use it with a Cyclo. No swirl. Period.

I've been using the new Farecla G3 Extra for a few months now. It works well with a wool pad, as well as a medium foam cutting pad (works better with foam however compared to wool). It doesn't sling like the old G3 and the residue cleans up well without staining. I'm using it with a Makita 9227CB orbital.

I generally finish with Juice Swirl Remover polish and a black finishing pad on a Flex DA.

I also have a Cyclo but don't use it that much these days now that I have the Flex.
