View Full Version : Foam application pads

Sep 9th, 2008, 01:21 PM
The 4" foam application pads are presently out-of-stock at Meguiars, and none of the local auto stores seem to carry foam pads either. Microfiber application pad seem to have won the day.

Two questions:

(1) Can anyone recommend a source for foam pads that would be appropriate for the application of cleaner and pure polishes? Needless to say, I would prefer to find them at some local store than having to buy them over the internet.

(2) Should I simply switch to the microfiber pads?

Microfiber ones will work fine. Just won't have quite as much 'bite' as the foam ones.

I always have a hard time finding the foam ones too. When I do find them I usually buy the entire store display.

Check your local boating supply stores such as West Marine or even Bass Pro Shop in the boating section. Often times they will have the foam pads as the micro fiber ones are not as popular with this type of detailing
