    Are you wrapping a microfiber bonnet over these pads to remove your wax? If so, yes, you can still do that. But honestly, if you're applying your wax with a DA it should be going on so thin and uniform that wipe off with just a microfiber towel should be a breeze. Furthermore, DA removal can be so aggressive that it can take off much of that very thin coat that you wanted to leave behind in the first place. Nonetheless, if that is indeed your preferred method of wax removal, you can indeed still use that process with the MT300.

    Michael,

    Thanks for the advice, never knew I might be removing some of the protection! My first detail with the MT300 will be my Chevy Express 3500 with the new red correction pad & D300, correction should be easier this time...

    I'll post some pics of my 2015 Chevy SS when complete.

    Thanks again,
    Wig

    Re: MT300 Dual Action Polisher

    Although I feel that the overall quality of Meguiar's products is fantastic, I feel the need to warn anyone considering one of their DA Polishers. I bought a G110V2 from them early 2014 and used it probably a total of 8 times before it recently stopped working.
    I called Meguiar's and there is nothing that they can do for me. Of course it's just out of warranty which is convenient for them seeing as since they no longer support this machine, if it were still under warranty they would have had to send me a new one. They did offer me $75 for it but I'm hoping a place like Tool Mart will be able to fix it.

    Things break, I get it but for Meguiar's to offer no options for the repair of a 2 year old machine with the MEGUIAR'S name on it is ridiculous. To anyone out there looking to purchase a new DA Polisher....I strongly recommend spending the extra money and get a higher end machine from a company who will support it when something goes wrong on it and it's outside of warranty.

    Well the support for the G110V2 is essentially gone in lieu of the MT300 being the replacement machine. But I sense your frustration.

    I was there when my MT300 had issues. As a matter of fact both times the power cord failed on mine. I was not happy with that. But at the end of the day, Meguiar's fixed it both times under warranty. It also appears that Meguiar's has made a design change to the power cord so that this issue doesn't plague the machine. As of right now it is currently working fine.

    I suspect your G110V2 has the dreaded power cord failure which is an easy fix.

    The more I look around this Forum the more people I see with same problems over and over again. I'm starting to wonder if Meguiar's was selling these machines knowing that they would fail.
