    Is it recommended to polish with #85 after applying ScratchX 2.0 ?

    Depends on how the paint finish appears after scratchx. If it appears hazy then a polish will clean that up.

    I was just wondering if ScratchX 2.0 is "rougher" than M-85....
    still, it does a heckuva job.
    I had scratches from a dirty car wash, and it took them right out.
    Then again, I saw a new 911 Porsche Carrerra in black the other day and it put my car's finish to shame.

    syswizard,

    Are you referring to our #M85 Professional Mirror Glaze Diamond Cut Compound? Although Scratch X 2.0 & #M85 Diamond Cut Compound both can take are scratches, they are quite different. M85 is more aggressive, but is also a bit older technology, and designed for use with a rotary machine only. Scratch X 2.0 utilizes our Super Micro Abrasive Technology, and can be applied by hand or D/A Polisher.

    Are you working by hand or machine?

    Hand...I have a rotary polisher, but it makes quite a detailing mess.
    I think I should move to a DA Polisher....no ??

    One thing I noticed about ScratchX 2.0: it "morphs" from a scratch remover to a fine polish.
    Not sure if the pressure or the temperature causes this.
    Still, it's very cool and unlike any other rubbing compound / polish.

    Will Megs Ultimate Polish remove the "holograms" left Scratch X 2.0? What kind of polish do I want to use?
