    A little bit on the rowdy side, all the same, these car guys and gals were a lot of fun to work with today!




    The two little guys with Dad in this picture were polite and very well behaved and we think they had just as much fun as the big guys.

    Once in a while people come to MOL asking questions about using foam cutting pads on the dual action polisher, (G100/PC). Here at Meguiar's our current policy is to not recommend, nor sell people cutting pads to use to apply products with the dual action polisher because while they may remove scratches, they tend to scour and haze the paint and most people don't have the skill or expertise to recover from this when it happens.

    Below is a picture of the hood on GTBrad's black Mustang.
    • - In the upper left hand corner you can see swirls in the paint that were there when Brad bought the car.
      - In the upper right hand side is how the hood looked after he tried using a cutting pad on the dual action polisher. Note how scoured the paint looks. (Just to note, this was not a Meguiar's cutting pad).
      - In the bottom half of the hood, we removed both the swirls and the scouring using Meguiar's products and only our polishing and finishing foam pads.


    The point is, using the correct technique, you don't have to resort to a foam cutting pad and risk scouring your car's paint to remove below surface defects and restore a show car shine!




    Thanks for letting us work on your car Brad!

    Thanks Mike!

    So I'm ditching this cutting pad since it's not "cutting it" in my process. (no pun intended)

    I'll only use my cutting pad in conjunction with a bonnet for removing product.

    Thanks Mike, for bringing out the true condition my paint should be in.

    See you at the next Open Garage!
