    #83 with a Light Cutting or Polishing Pad???

    So I still haven't purchased some W8006s

    So for now, I'm trying to work with these LC pads

    I'm applying #83 to my 2001 Ford Mustang using LCs light cutting pad, possibly the equivalent to the maroon W7006. I understand that this is quite an aggressive combo, however I am still showing a good amount of swirling.

    I'm using only a small bead of product around the edge of the pad, working it in at a slow arm speed with a PC speed setting of 5, and I'm using the correct pressure on the head of the polisher. I let the product work in for about 5 minutes making roughly 4-5 passes

    My results are and slight haze from the cutting pad, that's easily fixable with the #80, but the swirling is still showing.

    What could I be doing wrong?
    Overapplication?
    Not letting the diminishing abrasives break down?
    How hard is ford clear coat?

    Hi GTBrad,

    #83 does dust with the orange pad. it doesn't dust with a W8006, I have no idea why but i know it as a fact. I was using a new orange pad and #83 on a cool surface and it started dusting almost right away.
