Will I notice a difference if I use the G-100 (http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3990)


Hi all, I just signed up as a newbie and am wondering will I notice a difference in my cars finish if i purchase the G100 polisher, my car is a 2004 silver ford Thunderbird, was clayed at the dealership, and I waxed it with the Meguiar's NXT wax and used my 11 inch car buffer, the car sure felt ultra ultra smooth after I was finished and has a great shine.

Now I read about the Meguiar's G100 Dual Action Polisher?

Will it give me a better shine and a smoother surface? This is a Sunday, fair weather driver thats garaged and covered and has less than 600 miles. I would purchase the polisher if it would be a big improvement over my 11 inch buffer.

Thanks... :confused:

Hi ourbail,

Welcome to Meguiar's Online! :wavey

Oh gosh... where do I start...

Click through and read and look at the pictures in our "Detail Days at Meguiar's" forum in the link below and you will see many, many side-by-side and before and after photos of what can be accomplished with the G100. Best of all it's faster, easier and more effective than working by hand.

You will find lots of good info here!

When I first got my PC several years ago now I was shocked to see how much better the end product looked. I did my cars by hand 2 times a year. Now its easier, faster and I finds myself waxing my vehicle more often (3-4 months) and in turn I know my paint is well cared for and protected all the time.

I would also pick up a couple ultimate bonnets to remove the wax. Make is quick, easy and believe it or not it adds just a little more to the shine.

Here is my .02 cents..... I have found the PC has more power and easier to control than a 10" or 11" buffer. I have used a couple of them and compared to the PC the 10" machine seemed to move more than the pad itself. Where the PC puts the power at the pad.

You might consider moving to a PC, they work well.

I don't think you will see much difference on a silver car. I have several cars and my red and blue cars sparkle when you put in the extra effort. My two silver cars, a 2004 and a 1997 look good with just a coat of NXT Tech wax.

You'll know if you need polishing because you can see the swirls and other defects in the right light. If they get to the point where it bothers you then get the G-100 buffer and remove them.

Welcome!

I was skeptical of using the PC. I thought I could get just as good results by hand. The PC when used properly will make a big difference plus save you time and energy.

I second the Ultimate Bonnet and PC for wax removal. I also thought the wax/sealant step should be done by hand. After using the PC to remove wax I found the shine to be better than removing by hand. Both NXT and Gold Class had great results using the PC.

Silver is tough to get great depth, but it can still glisten! :D

With the time and energy saved, you'll wonder why you waited so long to get the PC. I sure did!

How much instruction do I need to become confident using a G100?
Do I need to tape edges and high spots to prevent buffing through the paint?
Some of the vehicles I have detailed have tape pinstripes, will the G100 damage
them? Sorry for all the Questions, I'm just an old dog trying to learn new tricks.

Hi Older Than Dirt,

It's always a good idea to avoid buffing directly on top of high points, edges and body lines just as a common sense approach to machine polishing paint. That said, as long as your car's finish is in good shape, the gentle polishing action of the G100 is very safe and you shouldn't have any problems unless the paint is very thin in these areas, thus the the reason to adopt the practice of not polishing directly on top of them.

If you want, for an extra measure of caution, you can apply some tape over the edges.

I often buff right over pin striping with no problems. If the pin striping is in good shape and not lifting off, you shouldn't have any problems and polishing them will tend to make them look better. Any pin striping that you wouldn't polish by hand because it's flaking off, cracking off, or so thin it's almost gone shouldn't be polished by hand, or machine.

If these two can do it, so can you...

Once you get the buffer, the best deal is to order their set of 3, 6.5" Polishing Pads and Backing Plate, part number W-DAV99 for $32.95. A lot more if you order seperately. The two yellow pads are for polishing and the white is for waxing, you'll be set for a long, long time. Then get a quart of their DA Cleaner/Polish and their Techwax and you can make just about any car super shiny. I know some people like to use the microfiber bonet for taking the wax off but I find it quicker to just use a microfiber towel and do it by hand, Costco has 16 for under $10 and they work great. Just remember to take the labels off before using. Before you buff you'll need to clay, Meguiars has theirs for pretty cheap for under $10.

Polishing glass takes something a little stronger than paint polish and I don't think Meguiars carries such a product. What you need is cerium oxide and a glass polishing pad. Just a quick search on the internet found this place, don't know anything about them but if you search for the cerium oxide you'll find plenty of place to get it from.

This is my first post and I"m a new member to the forum....just curious as to some details about the G100 because I have been researching it a little before I decided to join. I was thinking about taking advantage of the holiday offer for the G100 DACP but wasn't sure if it would be of much help to me. I drive a 2004 Jetta with Galactic (Dark) Blue paint. It's been well maintained and clayed several times so the paint is in great condition. Just wasn't sure if the G100 would be very helpful for things like applying tech wax because I probably wouldn't need to use it for polishing right away. Also, can you recommend any products you think would be helpful for the finish???

Hi Jason,

Welcome to Meguiar's Online :wavey


The G100 does and excellent job of thoroughly applying a thin, even coat of wax. This creates a very uniform appearance and makes removal by machine or hand incredibly easy!

Besides Tech Wax, a pure polish like Deep Crystal Polish (http://www.meguiars.com/store_meguiars/product_detail.cfm?sku=A-21) really increases the gloss and beauty in your car's finish!

http://www.meguiars.com/store_meguiars/images/product_a21.gif

Also a couple of Meguiar's Ultimate Bonnets (http://www.meguiars.com/store_meguiars/product_detail.cfm?sku=m-99) to enable you to remove products like Tech Wax with the dual action polisher.

Hi ourbail,

I've never met anyone who regretted purchasing a dual action polisher. You will love the results and how the machine takes all the work out of applying and removing products.

Because you don't want to mix different product onto the same pad, or in other words, it's a good idea to dedicate your pads, that is to only use one product on each pad, most people find they need a few extra pads as they get into the machine polishing world. For this reason, the Set of 3 pads - WDAV99-B (http://www.meguiars.com/store_meguiars/product_detail.cfm?sku=WDA) kit is very popular. You may be able to change your order or add this on.

http://www.meguiars.com/store_meguiars/images/product_wda.gif

$24.95

Other than that, looks good!

Enjoy!

With the one Lowe's offers, you don't get a Velcro backing plate, a quality foam pad, or the lifetime warranty. Meguiar's Lifetime Warranty on this unit makes is a great value at at a great price.

Plus unlike Lowe's, we support our customers with our 1-800 347-5700 Customer Care Hotline and even this discussion forum where you can post questions, offer you suggestions and share your passion with like minded friends, something Lowe's and other discount stores don't offer.

Meguiar's has always focused on education, as in teaching people how to evaluate their surface, how to choose the right product for the job and how to use good technique.

If you live in the Southern California area, you even get hands-on training and education, something Costco and Lowe's don't offer. We even supply a very nice pizza lunch with cold soda pop and water and supply some free samples for you to test out!

Those detail clinics that Meguiar's sponsors are a wonderful offering. I learned things there that I never knew in 37 years of washing and waxing cars.

I truly appreciate the chance to learn from friendly and knowledgeable people.

While I missed out on the Christmas special for the G-100 and
ended up buying a similar machine elsewhere, I did purchase over $250 worth of Meguiar's products in the three weeks since I attended the clinic.

This past weekend I polished my 4th car since attending the clinic and the Meguiar's products have my cars looking better than ever.

In my case my new car was delivered with horrendous scratches and swirls from the dealership improperly washing the car down for delivery. Although a coat or two of wax temporarily hid the damage there was only one way to get it out.

I used the 'G-100' with an 8006 polishing pad and #83 Dual Action Cleaner Polish but it was evident that that alone wasn't going to get it done.

I had to break out the rotary polisher and very carefully used #83 and #2 Fine Cut polish to get the major scratches out.

Then, back to the G-100 and #83 again. I followed that up with #80 Speed Glaze on another 8006 pad. After that I used #7 Show Car Glaze applied with the G-100 and wiped each stage off with the Ultimate Wipe micro fiber cloths.

Next came a coat of NXT Tech Wax, again applied with the G-100 and the 9006 Foam Pad. I didn't use the Ultimate Bonnet but wiped it off by hand because after 12 hours of machine polishing I was ready for some "manual" labor.

The final results are stunning and this finally looks like the car I expected when I ordered it.

So my answer to the original poster is, YES, the G-100 will make a huge difference in the care of your car's finish.

It is a very versatile machine and you would not regret getting one.

I hope everyone can take advantage of the Crhistmas Special.

Thanks Meguiar's.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for chiming in and sharing your experience with the polisher and especially how you were able to create the type of finish you desired on your car and actually should have received at the time of purchase. Your story is a common one and just goes to show that often times if you want a show car finish, you have to take matters into your own hands. With the exception of handful of Professional detailers and detail shops, nobody has more of a vested interest in their car's finish over the owner.

Nice write-up.

Just a quick question....I was curious if there are any kind of abrasives in the step 2 deep crystal polish. Is there any possibility of damaging the finish if applied incorrectly? Is the G100 more likely to cause any kind of damage or swirls? What's usually a good sign that the car needs polishing? Is the 3 step Deep Crystal system necessary?

Meguiar's Deep Crystal Polish is completely non-abrasive. It's sole purpose is to create brilliant high gloss. As long as you are applying this pure polish by hand, or with either the W-8006 polishing pad, or the W-9006 finishing pad, you will not instill any swirls or any other type of damage.

A good sign that a finish needs polishing is when it begins to loose its vibrancy, depth of shine, clarity, gloss and slickness. Sometimes, you cannot tell if a finish needs this until you do a polish a test area and compare it to the original paint in its original, pre-polished condition.

Good questions.

I appreciate the input and I will be ordering it soon before the special ends at the end of december...the only question is what to order along with it. I'm planning on ordering the ultimate bonnet and the pack of 3 pads. However, just a little unclear as of what would be best out of all of the professional products. The numbers get a little confusing at times and I don't think I need anything strong to get rid of any huge swirls as of now. Except my brother's car could use something for his swirl marks so I just may consider adding something to the order to take care of it. Perhaps #9?? The 80, 81 and 83 seem to be pretty popular as well. My only concern is that I don't want to damage the clear coat at all. Thanks again.

Hi Jason,

I would recommend the #9 Swirl Remover 2.0 for your lightest polishing work, and the #80 Speed Glaze for a clean/polish with just a little more cleaning ability while still being very, very very safe.

The #9 is available in 16 ounce bottles, or one-gallon jugs. The #80 Speed Glaze is available in 32 ounce bottles or one gallon jugs. If you think you would like more than a 16 ounce bottle of the #9 Swirl Remover 2.0, then you could opt for swapping the #82 Swirl Free Polish as it is available in a 32 ounce bottle like the #80 Speed Glaze.

The #82 Swirl Free Polish is offers only a sleight amount more cleaning power than the #9 Swirl Remover 2.0, most people cannot tell the difference.

Hi jetta18T,

As long as your car's finish is clean and free of any loose contaminants, and your foam polishing pad is clean and free from any loose contaminants, then applying wax with our G100 Dual Action Polisher will instill not swirls, scratches or damage.

The "Power Polishing" video will suffice, also you might want to order the "How to remove paint defects" (http://www.meguiars.com/store_meguiars/product_detail.cfm?sku=PES-VIDEO) as it touches on using the G-100 as well as many other topics that address paint polishing.

Hi ourbail,

When using the G100 Dual Action Polisher to remove defects, (This is different then merely applying a polish or a wax because you're trying to remove paint), you need to use a slow arm speed and overlap you passes by 50%. You also want to go in at least two different directions, for example, from where you're standing, side to side, then front to back. You can also move the polisher in a kitty/corner fashion for complete, thorough and uniform cleaning action.

Only work a small area at a time, this will vary according to the shape, curve or body line of the panel you are polishing but for example on a large flat panel, you want to stay around a 12" to 18" squared area. The point being, don't try to work to large of an area all at once or you won't remove the defects equally everywhere.

When you move on to a new section, overlap into the old section for a uniform end results.

When it comes time for applying a pure polish, or a wax, (besides cleaner/waxes like ColorX if you're doing a one-step), the you can polish larger areas and spend less time, i.e. use less passes.

The point of the cleaning step is to remove the defects. Because the G100's polishing action is gentle and therefore safe, it takes time to remove small particles of paint in an effort to remove a defect.

If the below image represents swirls and scratches evenly distributed throughout your car's finish,

http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/gallery/data/500/2swirlsinpaint.JPG

Then you can see that in order to remove the defects you need to remove the highest areas of the surface until they are level with the lowest depths of the deepest scratches. In essence, you must remove paint.

Hope this helps...

Yes I can't wait to order it and try the new toys out...I thought the NXT applied by hand was amazing but from what I hear I'm expecting even better results. Even considering trying the clay, then Deep Crystal Polish or #9, then 2 coats of NXT on my girlfriend's car too... Thanks you guys have great advice

you will not see a differance in the finish on the particular car you are speeking of. but would have and will notice a huge differance in ease of use and versatility using the "g100 d/a)

Just bought a PC at Lowe's today. Under 120 after tax, but I have to buy pads, bonnets and a backing plate. Going to use it on a black 01 Stratus sedan and a 04 grey Ram. I will try using the DC 3-step since that is what I have on hand.
