    Hi Mike,

    On the Rupes 21 was that a five inch backing plate and pad you were using or the six inch?

    Great result on the Camaro btw!

    Beautiful work!

    But what's up with the geeky silver stickers on that nice car??

    2019 BMW X2 M35i - Sunset Orange Metallic
    2017 Honda Civic Si - Aegean Blue

    Some look better than others....

    Great write up Mike, as is your customary style!!

    These new pads are really something, and the cutting pad has quickly become a new favorite of mine personally. Interesting that you used the thin foam DA pads on a rotary in some images here, Mike. We know that several have played with them that way and all have reported great results.

    Amazing work as always! Love that color! And great combo of products you used. Haven't tried the M101 yet but hopefully next order or so.

    That's a 5" on the Rupes Bigfoot 21 with the washer mod. If you look closely you'll see some 3M Blue Vinyl Tape wrapped around the body of the tool. I placed this tape on this tool as a visual indicator to make it easy to find this Rupes Bigfoot 21 out of the dozen or so Rupes polishers in the garage for our detailing classes. I didn't install the washer mod, this Bigfoot 21 was a "return" to Autogeek. I left it this way for anyone that wants to try a modded Rupes.

    The paint was trashed and as a way of showcasing the new Meguiar's pads I fully documented the before, process and after shots including the sun shots.

    I'm personally a fan of using thick foam pads for any direct drive tools. I should have made it more clear to the guys that the thick pads were for rotary and the thin pads for the dual action polishers. Regardless the thin pads did actually work quite well with the Flex PE14 rotary polishers and for what it's worth we were using very flexible backing plates. They might not offer as nice a buffing experience with a rigid backing plate.

    I wondered about the tape around the tool. Thanks for clarifying!

    Great review as always Mike.

    So are these new pads suitable to use with our existing W67DA backing plates?

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Yes, you can use them with the W67DA plate - same as used with the microfiber pads currently - but NOT the W68DA which was designed for the Soft Buff 2.0 pads.

    Thanks....

    Could you specify how much cushioning one gets when using the 5 inch thin pad on a 5 inch BP? By 5 inch pads, do you mean the velcro area is 5inch and the foam pans out a bit or by 5 inch you mean the pad is meant for a 5inch BP ? Some of the shots (on Meguiars DA specifically) seem very close as if a slight tilt to the pad (or close to a curvy surface with downward pressure applied) may get the BP in contact with paint.. I am mainly interested with respect to the default 5" BP that comes with a GG6 (i am hoping its about the same dimensions as this new Meg 5" BP).

    I was hoping to see your scale measurements (of all sides) of these pads too (like you've done in other articles discussing pads).. Let me know if thats posted somewhere.. Thanks
