    That stuff works great. Used 3M Ultrafina with a black foam egg pad on my rotary after Meguiars #85 Diamond with a wooly.

    Even tried a full glaze on some panels using 3M Finesse-It in between and it didn't make a noticeable difference. Using the UF and #85 as a two step package worked great.

    This first pic was just after the wooly.

    Put UF directly on the pad from now on to avoid splatter.

    As clean as she's gonna get after 2 hours of work, inside & out.

    Niiice! Wait until you try using Meguiars #105-blows away every other heavy compound I've used and usually Ultrafina is more than adequate in removing the swirls #105 leaves behind. :)

    Thanks. :h5:

    I saw your thread in the main forum with the Accord, one of our blue Honda half/half shots look eerily familiar. :noes: Did you use 105 on that? I think you ended up with less 'sun swirls'.

    Yes, I used #105, on the hood, IIRC, it was just 105, the rest of the car, I used 105 mixed 50/50 with Optimum Compound, which extends the work time of 105 with little reduction in cut. 105 leaves a really good finish for a compound rated "12" on Meguiars 1-10 scale of aggressiveness. Yes, "12". :eek3:

    Only 105, as in no glaze/swirl remover afterwards on the hood? Was that with a foam pad and you were able to stop paint correction after one step?

    I followed with Ultrafina but yes, that was #105 only, I think 2-3 polishing passes (less than a minute each). Meguiars #8006 yellow polishing pad. 1000 rpm. No need to go higher in rpms with #105.
