    The burgundy foam cutting disc should cut faster than the microfiber finishing disc, but not faster than the microfiber cutting disc. Whether or not it finishes better is going to be very paint dependent. From experience, however, paint that is prone to hazing with microfiber will haze with either microfiber disc. Those paints tend to respond much better to the foam cutting disc. Really hard paints love microfiber though, so in that case the microfiber may prove to be the better choice.

    Yes, this new backing plate will fit all popular, traditional DA tools (G110v2, G100, PC7424, Harbor Freight, Griot's Garage, etc).

    Mike

    First off I want to thank you for the class on January 31. I learned a whole heck of a lot.

    Second. Now it is time to put this goodness to work. I will be working on an accord and a prius (we will see what comes after these). Would it be better to get a 5" or 6" discs?

    Thanks so much!

    I'm personally a fan of 5" BP and 5" discs/pads. I like the feel.
    I use 5" with my DA's (GG, PC, Rupes, Flex etc.) and rotaries.

    Glad you enjoyed the class!

    If you're working with a traditional DA (G110v2, Griot's, Porter Cable, etc) then definitely go with the 5" pads. We make the 6" pads for users of the Flex 3401, Rupes 21 and pneumatic DA tools.

    Re: NEW! DA Foam Discs and Backing Plates

    Mike I have a question and would like to hear your thoughts. A little background prior to getting to my question. My brother had an aftermarket hood painted to change the appearance of his car. In the process of receiving it, the body shop decided to wash it. This is what it looked like after we had polished it a couple months prior to him taking it in .




    So my first thing is doing a test spot with M205 and the new yellow foam disc to see if that is more than enough to remove the defects. The paint is on the medium side. I am thinking I am going to have to compound.

    If I do compound it I will be using D300 and the new burgundy cutting disc. Now here is my question. What are your thoughts on using D302 with either a polishing disc or finishing disc instead of M205 on a polishing disc to remove any DA haze that may occur or just to refine the finish after compounding?

    Thanks
    -Mike

    Mike, while those swirls look pretty heavy, it's most likely just a heavy concentration of same rather than abnormally deep. We would expect D300 on the burgundy foam cutting disc to blast through these (we've pulled sanding marks out of very hard Ceramiclear paint with that combo) and you may well end up with virtually zero haze - that cutting disc is a rock star! If you do have any haze, however, we recommend going with M205 if you're staying with foam discs rather than microfiber. D302 has no functional abrasives in it, instead relying on the microfiber filaments themselves to do any surface refining while the D302 acts as sort of a buffering solution to that cut. D300/DFC5 and M205/DFP5 should be a killer 1-2 punch on this hood.

    Thanks Mike. The entire car is just like this so I will go with the recommended combo for sure.
