    Damn, I love this stuff! I got introduced to it at the Autopia/Meguiars meet out in La-La Land. I guess a more accurate number would be #82.5 since that is where it fits on the Meguiars aggressiveness scale.

    It breaks down very quickly and you can go straight to a wax if you want as long as you do work it enough to break down the abrasives. Can be used by hand, PC or rotary. Since it breaks down rather quickly, it is probably a better choice by hand than #82 is.

    I've followed #80 with NXT with real good results and also with Vanilla Moose and EX-P. In fact, my new favorite 3 step is #80/VM/EX-P.

    Anyway, I thought I would pass this along. I should have some pics to post in the next day or two of cars I have used #80 on.

    :cool: The PC is an amazing tool.

    Yeah, it and NXT looked amazing on your car. That was the first time I had used #80.

    Anyway, here is my Dad's 626 after using #80 Speed Glaze (which removed the rest of the minor cobwebbing), Vanilla Moose (both #80 and VM using a polising pad and speed of 6) and EX-P by hand.

    Any place that sells Meguiars professional line should either have it in stock or be able to order it.

    You should still order that DAC/P, #80 will replace the SFP.

    would #80 be a better alternative glaze than #7?

    If you only want to have one polish, then yes. #80 starts off nearly as strong as DACP but breaks down more quickly and is loaded with polishing oils so you can go straight to wax if you want. If you want to use 3 steps, as in #80, #7 then your wax/sealant, it makes sense to have both.

    I don't feel like buying a new pad for my PC but I don't want to miss out on the goodness of the teh new hotness speed glaze. Is good ol' SFP an inferior product or is it just not as quick?

    If you still have a large quantity of #82, use that until you are out, then get #80. It (#80) is a touch more aggressive and breaks down more quickly. It also seems to have more oils....very much like #81 Hand Polish so it finishes off a bit better as well.

    Where can we get/buy #80? I'd really like to try this stuff out. I already am using #7 and love the results. The only thing i dont like about #7 is that its so hard to wipe off.

    You can buy it through Meguiars website and I think the autopia store (www.autopia.org) carries it too. Meguiars also has a professional product distributor locator on their site.

    that 3 step combo is quickly becoming my favorite as well. I have a red grand cherokee that I'm going to put that combo on this week. After seeing the results on my mom's maxima I was amazed. Just thought I'd share...

    :cool: The more I use it, the more I like it. Even when I have to work by hand (no outlet for my PC), #80 works great! Used it on a black Dodge Ram the other day (topped with Poorboy's EX w/carnauba) and even in the direct sun, it looked terrific!.
