    I have tried using scratch x, ultimate compound, tried little pressure, lots of pressure and still no luck, except that area around looks outstanding. Would what a step down from scratch x be are a more aggresive compound before i try wet sanding. thanks for any help

    What are you working on and what are you trying to correct? Do you have an isolated scratch that is so deep you can feel it with your fingernail?

    As an 'elbow grease' guy, I am seriously considering going 'power' for my car, and this article puts to rest any apprehension about sorting out what to use, where, and when. My biggest fear is damaging my 20+ year old base/clear finish that has been regularily maintained with Meguair's products. Guess the best way to make the switch is to pull the trigger on a DA buffer, and test fly it !!
    Thanks for a great step by step tutorial.

    You'll love it!

    Just remember...least agressive product/method first. In other words, start gentle.

    All the major DA tools on the market use a hook & loop (velcro) attachment system for mounting the pads to the backing plate, so it's the same as with your rotary. The backing plates for the DA are different than those on the rotary as rotary backing plates thread onto the 5/8" threaded stud on the tool while DA backing plates have a 5/16" threaded stud that threads into the tool.

    If you're going to use our Soft Buff 2.0 7" foam pads then you want our W68DA backing plate. The W68DA plate ships with our G110v2 buffer, by the way. If you're going to use our DA Microfiber Correction System then you want our W67DA backing plate for the 5.5" microfiber discs and our S3BP plate for the 3" discs.
