    Re: D/A Buffing 101 – An Introduction to the G110v2 (and similar)

    Back in 2005, I took a Meguiar's seminar with Mike Phillips on how to use a G100, W8006, M80, etc... Mike Phillips had a thread on how to use the G100 (speed settings, pressure). I can't seem to find that thread anymore (trying to find it for reference on what polish, pads, speed settings, pounds of pressure). Has that thread been depreciated into this?

    I've been lazy with my car's paint and it's time to get it clayed, polished, waxed once again.

    Mike: I'm new to this forum and also new to all of Mequiar's products. Have to say it's a little confusing. However I do have to say that when I read any informational article/s on detailing, such as this one you wrote, I print it off, put it in a plastic holder and attach it to my "Detailing Information" folder, which then is immediately hung on the wall of my shop for future reference if I can't figure something out.

    Your article, putting all other detailing articles aside, is by far the best I have ever read. Needless to say, when I open my information folder, your article will be the very first one available to me or some of my detailing friends who hang around my shop. What more can I say other than "thank you." An absolute, fantastic article!!

    Re: D/A Buffing 101 An Introduction to the G110v2 (and similar)

    First time on MOL. Very informative article (DA Buffing 101) for first time user of MT 300 DA. I have always done correction, polishing, waxing etc., by hand. But wanting to work smarter took the DA plunge.

    Also have a question. New (2017) VW CC has what looks like some acid rain damage on horizontal surfaces. But even if it's bird droppings, is the removal process any different?
    I'd appreciate any thoughts or threads you can point me to that would help.

    Removal process is essentially the same. Etchings from bird droppings are classed as below surface defects, same as swirls, scratches, oxidation, stains, etc so they are removed the same way. As with any below surface defect, however, the severity of the defect and the hardness of the paint will dictate how aggressively you need to work in order to remove them.
