    Re: Shampoo with or without wax?

    Yea well. Meguiars products are very overpricied here if you compare to US anyway

    A bottle of UWW: $24

    A bottle of UQW: $22

    Re: Seeking some advice on polishing

    The old cutting pad wasn't recommended because it could cause some hazing on some paints. The new version works great with any type of tool.

    Yes the new backing plate will fit on your DA. Meguiar's only offers the 5" and 6" foam pads for the DA.

    Sounds like you are in

    Hi Guz,

    Yes I have.
    As mentioned I have the 7" Wx207 pads right now - and I 'm not even sure you can get 7" from Meguiars

    Re: Shampoo with or without wax?

    The wax left behind is minimal anyway so I would not overthink it. It's mostly for the freshly waxed look.

    I would recommend getting a smaller backing plate or a dedicated smaller DA + backing plate for those curved edges.

    You are going to have

    Re: Shampoo with or without wax?

    Guess am a bit overkill then. I use both Ultimate wash and wax and UQW directly after?

    Yes, I know it's the elephant in the room. The whole car is original paint EXCEPT for that fender. I mentioned it in a previous post: I'm looking for

    Just yesterday I was at my local "True-Value" hardware store and noticed they had it. So maybe check out your local 'TV' and see IF they may

    Hi Drumdan,

    First I have to correct myself - I was using a 7" W7207 Cutting Pad, not a 6". My bad.
    Well, my job was to remove

    In-Progress: 1986 Porsche 951 (Guards Red)

    Thread Starter: Slowcorrado

    Hi all, Here's my initial thread on the forums about my 1986 Porsche 951. I purchased it about 10 years ago and haven't driven it over 500 miles in that whole time. It was my dream car when I was in high school, so I had to get one. :-) When I purchased it I just "knew" it needed a new paint...

    Seeking some advice on polishing

    Thread Starter: Vifa

    Hi all, I have the G220v2 with 6" polishing pads. I would like to know what you do on smaller sections and curves/edges? Would you hand rub smaller sections with an "Even Pad" and how small should a section be before you decide not to use the DA polisher? I ask this because I find it hard...

    Shampoo with or without wax?

    Thread Starter: Vifa

    Hi all, When would I choose a shampoo without wax? What are the pros and cons? I normally use Gold Class Carnauba Paste Wax once or twice a year anyway.

    Swirl X

    Thread Starter: drumdan

    Can't seem to find Swirl X locally. Are the retailers ceasing to carry it? NXT 2.0 is pretty sparse too.
