    Hi froggy,

    I watched your video & it looks like the products you chose of ours, Scratch X 2.0 & NXT Tech Wax 2.0, did the job, like you mentioned. Good Work. What advice are you looking for now?

    Hi Nick,

    Just if there is anything different I should have done?

    Anything that fills light scratches better than NXT 2?

    I have a couple suggestions, like you mentioned, your pad is getting old. If you upgraded to some newer, more low profile foam "discs", like our Soft Buff D/A Foam Discs, it will dramatically improve the feel of your Porter Cable, and also improve your cutting/polishing ability. Low profile foam discs have less mass, therefore you get more efficient pad rotation. Our Ultimate Compound is more commonly used on a D/A Machine, and offers a little more cut & ease of use on a machine, than the product you used, Scratch X 2.0.

    One intermediate step you did not take, is the use of a polish, especially on black, you can get a better finish with a product like our Ultimate Polish, used prior to applying a coat of wax.

    The scratches you were working are actually not what we would call light. Waxes like NXT only have a certain amount of ability to fill, and it is very minimal.

    Thanks Nick.

    Is Ultimate compound like 3000 + grit? The red arrow points to extra heavy cut, so I'm confused. Sorry. I think you are onto something with my pad.

    So ultimate compound, then ultimate polish, then wax.

    Yes?

    Meguiar's G17216 Ultimate Compound is not even close to the aggressiveness of 3000 grit. Ultimate Compound, Ultimate Polish, Ultimate Wax, is a very sort of "tried & true" combination among many Meguiar's users. The "Ultimate Trio" as we often call it, is commonly sold with our MT300 Dual Action Polisher in kits as well. If you need more "cut" or in other words, a "more aggressive combination", Meguiar's D/A Microfiber Correction Compound on our D/A Microfiber Cutting Disc, in our professional line, is a great next step up. Modern clear coat paints, (hate to generalize but especially corvettes), are often hard or more "resilient". They can scratch & swirl easy typically, but again most often times they are resilient to product used for defect removal like paint cleaners & compounds. This is partly why D/A Polishers are so preferred when doing paint correction, opposed to working by hand.

    Thanks Nick, do you sell the ultimate trio & a pad or 2 without the DA?



    Or have to buy each alone?

    Maybe Amazon?

    Froggy,

    The Ult trio is available just about everywhere. As to the pads, you might hit up a local auto paint supply store. There is a possibility they could have them or order them for ya. But, in a nut shell, pads are mostly a 'mail order' item.

    Hi Bill, I have some good "amazon" pads forget which, but Nick was talking about special thin pads? From Meg for scratches?
