Hey guys its me again. I havent used many polishing systems and am curious as to what others are using. In the past ive used norton liquid ice 3 pad one polish system and currently working with 3m 1-2-3. For the most part 3m is working well however, the dreaded solid black. I can get the swirls gone but it has holgrams or vice-versa. Im tryin to finish up a job with a VERY perticular customer. So it has to be “perfect” or as we all know as close to perfect that perfect can be. Then it gets washed :cens how are you guys finishing off these jobsNovember 26, 2015 at 9:54 pm #49169
We use Meguiars #34 Final Inspection after washing those types of jobs. All you do is spray a fine mist of it and wipe it off with a micro fiber cloth. Works for smudges, finger prints,water spots, cloth marks. Also works well in jambs for compound residue. Real nice stuff. :cheer:December 1, 2015 at 11:33 pm #49183
I generally use Farecla, but have also used 3M and Meguiar’sDecember 6, 2015 at 1:16 am #49194
Swirl comes from your machine, pad and technique. While some polishes are better then others they are, for this discussion, irrelevant.
Bite the bullet and get yourself a Cyclo. From your first use the swirl will be gone – just keep the pads perfectly flat on the panel. Medium soft pads for finishing with any swirl remover you like, but for black cars I use Gelson T57. We do 2 cars/day with the Cyclo and have done for the last 13 years. That’s more than 6700 cars and the results are always the same. If you want, a final polish with soft pads, but it isn’t really necessary. Remove any residue with a very clean or new microfibre, making sure you get it all.
