    will this work?? need opinions??

    Well I have decided against the Megs Microfiber kit because my 97 Toyota 4runner has been repainted on one side and don't want to possibly have a problem. My truck has not been waxed in about 4 years but has always stayed clean and the paint is in decent shape except for minor imperfections and many swirls. I have Megs #9 Swirl Remover 2.0 but heard its not that agressive.....So I was thinking from reading to use MEGS Ultimate Compound and maybe then follow up with the Swirl Remover 2.0???? Would this be a good combination or is there something else I should be doing? Since I have this bottle brand new I would like to use it if its going to work. I am using a PC 7424xp. Will the UC be too agressive for my paint? UC is fairly priced and I like that.....Also, I've heard that pads bigger than 5.5" is not really recommended for the PC 7424xp and I only see Megs 6.5 or 7" pads. I see many use Lake Country pads in the 5.5" and most say stick with this size so here I am confused again. I like Megs products so looking for a solid combo that will work well. THanks for any help

    You can use the M09 after the UC but I would think you should use a product like M07 show car glaze or even Ultimate polish. Once you have compounded an area or a car it needs to be followed up with oils found in a pure polish or a polish like UP. OPnce you have replenished the oils in the paint then you just top it with you wax of choice. I

    I myself am a found fan of M07 I find that it has given the cars I do that wet look and really bring out the colors of a car very well.

    As far as your DA I am not fimliar with PC and what pads need or should be used. I see if I can dig around and find out information for you.

    Thanks for the tips.....Ultimate Compound and Ultimate Polish are excellent values especially from amazon. What is the difference between the UP and the M07? If not much, then I will probably stick with UP. Are they both applied well the a DA? thanks,,,,

    UC and UP are made to go hand in hand. M07 is a straight pure polish . You will be fine with UC and UP and they both go on great with a DA

    Nothing wrong with trying the #9 after UC, and seeing how you like it.
