    Re: Solo Pad System

    The Solo pads are part of the Solo System which is a system specifically developed for working on fresh paint in body shops where the primary tool used is the rotary buffer.

    We don't recommend using the Solo Pads with a DA Polisher and don't offer a specific backing plate for this application.

    Also just to note, the diamond cut pattern grooves in the Solo Pads won't work with diminishing abrasive products and should only be used with SMAT products.

    What are you working on?
    What are you trying to accomplish?

    Elimination of swirls is my main goal.
    I understand that it was a mistake not to search better so that i knew those were not the best for me.

    We're not one of those forums where when someone asks a question all the member's chime in and post,

    Just a guess from the title under your forum nickname, are you in Greece?

    If so and you've already ordered them and they're en route to you, then it's up to you, your other options aren't much fun, like shipping these pads back and then ordering the right pads and waiting for all this to happen before you can work on your car.

    That said, as long as you use products like M105 and M205 or Ultimate Compound, ScratchX 2.0 or SwirlX there won't be any chemical to pad problems, avoid using diminishing abrasive products with non-flat pads.

    The best thing to do would be to get some flat faced foam polishing and finishing pads as soon as you can and then either wait till you get these or switch over to them after they arrive and you detail the car again.

    Re: Solo Pad System

    So being new to rotary polishing (Makita 9227 on order) - I was thinking to use the M105 with the solo wool pads & solo backing-plate (I like the soft layer on the W66 backing plate). I'm just wondering - when not using W86 is it better to use the W4000 or are the solo-pads a good/better choice ? Finishing will be done with the M205 & the (traditional) foam-pad W8207. Not looking to buy the solo foam-pads at this point in time as I won't be using M86 for now. Do all solo-pads (and the W66 backing-plate) have the 5.75 inch (146 mm) velcro like the 6,5/7 inch foam pads (8207 etc) ?

    Also, as I've never touched one so far - can sb shed a light on the wool-pad W5000 pad (double-sided) and the use for it (how it compares to W4000/solo wool pads) ?

    Thx,
    Gert
