    i am sure theres been lots of threads on this stuff but i couldent help myself about posting this

    last weekend i repainted my hood, after it came out of the booth me and my friend wet sanded it out with 1000,2000 then 3000, then came the nerve racking part....buffing it out with a rotary buffer(i have 0 confidence with them) so i did my best and it looked like i got all the sand scratches out but i found out when i got home i didnt

    after a week of trying different combo's i tried to find some "rocks in a bottle" i found this morning at the local autobody supply store (its the new da approved one too)

    so i busted out the PC threw on an orange LC pad, followed the directions of 2-3 passes with moderate pressure then 2 with light...wiped it off....3000 GRIT SCRATCHES GONE! damn that made me happy....finished it off with some Ultrifina SE and it looks wicked deep and wet now!

    if it wasent for the shit i learned in this forum i would be showing my car at Hot Import Nights this weekend with an ugly ass hood


    sorry no pics :( my dslr is @ home....i'll post pics of it at the show this weekend

    Glad to hear it worked out so well for you. Definitely a superior compound. :)

    I think that 105 and UF are each the absolute best in their respective categories.

    Meguiar's finally got the balls to release a real compound. Their old scale of 0 - 10 was a joke. Even their 9.5 didn't cut much.

    105 is definitely awesome :bowdown: got shit out of our TGP (19 years old) that previously didn't have a prayer of getting out :bowdown:

    I still need to get used to it's work in time though, I kept pulling off the paint before it was fully broken down :mad:

    The new 105 with the Kevin Brown Method is simply amazing. 205 is wonderfull as well. It can remove some serious defects by itself. Meg's D-151 is the best one stepper out there. It has the same abrasives as 105/205. I scuffed up a panel with 3000 grit and hit it with 151 and orange pad with my G110. It took them all out.....even after an IPA wipe.

    These are the only 3 products that I'm using now for defect removal.

    As in one-stepper, I'm meaning with protection. An All-in-One.

    Does power finish have protection in it???

    :werd: 105/205 have replaced most of the 80-series polishes in my arsenal. I do still use #80 though on fresh repaints as temporary protection while curing.

    I need to get some Ultrafina to try yet.

    #105 + #205 + Ultrafina is about as good as it gets. :)

    Found some "Ultrafine" (USA version of Ultrafina) locally. 39.00+13.00 for the pad. Should last me a long time since it takes so little of it.

    Scott do you prime the pad with it and how much are you using with the 3M pad per panel?

    As long as the product number is 06068, you got the right product. Not sure why they changed the name. :dunno:

    Here is the link to the 3M training video: http://shows.implex.tv/3MTV/Root/AAD/2638/preflight.htm?AutoLoginComplete=1

    Probably a quarter size blob of product if you were to group the amount I spread of the pad per section, about double that amount for the first panel or two to prime the pad. Remember, UF is meant to remove LIGHT holograms so don't go straight from a compound to UF unless either baking the oils out in the sun or an IPA wipedown reveal only mimimal holograms.

    1000 rpms to spread, 1800 rpms under enough pressure to lightly compress the pad for 2-3 slow passes and 1000 rpms, easing up on the pressure for another pass or two. Should take no more than a minute per section.

    Is there a difference between the Meguiars 105 and 205? Can I use one or the other or should I use both?

    Well, if there are two different product numbers, the logical assumption is they are different. :dunno:

    #105 is rated '12' on Meguiars 1-12 aggressiveness (cut) scale, #205 is rated a '4'.

    I'd recommend getting both. Always start with #205 first and move to #105 as needed and then back down to #205 to finish out.
