    so everyone is recomending this stuff now, but it seems like everyone applies it with a rotary, is it possible to apply and get results with a 7424?

    and the 3m pads for the product, can you use those on a PC too or should i use the LC gray pad?

    go with the 3M pads. They were designed to work together. Yeah, you can use the stuff with PC, just takes a little more work. It really breaks down better on a rotary though.

    I know Joe, aka ebpcivic on Autopia finishes out cars with Ultrafina and a PC. I guess he wants to be 100% sure there are no swirl comebacks.

    I've been using it by rotary and it absolutely rocks. Deep wet, swirl free finish. :)

    I used it with my PC and an orange LC low pro pad. It did really really well to my amazement! Broke down fine and removed light marring. It the level of gloss that UF gives though. Unmatched in my opinion.

    Don't be scared of the rotary, keep the pads flat and you shouldn't have any problems.

    Scott, do you have any samples of this? I would like to try this puppy out with the SIP I am getting this week.

    tracked some down today, let me tell you dealing with pourto ricans isnt easy

    i walk into the place, see the 3M stuff, none there, ok its new i'll ask if they can at least get it, the dumbo goes through 2 3M product catalogs which were circa 1910, not in there, i keep telling him its new

    then the manager or what ever must of overheard part of it and tell me "ITS IF NOT AUTOMOTIVE WE CANT GET IT" so i tell him it is, he tells me to find the part number, look it up on the web real quick, the manager figures out that their chain stocks it but they are out, calls the PR and name and tells me it'll be in tomorrow :bigthumb:

    the place stocks the full Meg's Mirror glaze line too :eek3:
