.... pads....

The one area all noobs fail at....

You simply cannot do any serious paint correction with 1 pad...

I would say that at a minimum you need

LSP x 1
Final polishing x 4 - 6
Cutting x 6 - 8 of course you can reduce this if you are prepared to stop and wash/dry pads mid detail

For example, I cannot stand the look Megs Endurance Tire Gel gives, or the fact that it slings, but I know plenty people who really like that shiny look.

A lot of the 'value' in detailing products is very subjective....

Nice

Are you planning on using them with the 3" Rupes pads, or with some other smaller pads?

My opinion is that a BP that is sized to fit 3" pads will not be ideal for use with 4" pads.

There will simply be too much 'over-hang' - in other words let's assume the BP is 2.5" to fit a 3" pad.... when used on a 4" pad it means that from the outer edge of the BP to the edge of the pad, there is 0.75" where the pad has no pressure being applied to it from the BP and will thus 'fold up' away from the paint surface as soon as you put any pressure onto the pad.

Effectively then your 4" pad becomes a 2.5" pad....

Ideally you want your BP to be slightly less in diameter than your pad (to provide a safety margin and prevent the BP from touching the paint) but not so much that you actually lose pad performance....

So a 3.5" BP for a 4" pad means you are only losing 0.25" in working diameter.

Since Shield = Megs (lol) - it should be able to work on both?

Well you could do a decon, then use something like an AIO which will clean the paint, won't be the same result as a machine polish but it should make a good difference.


I'd recommend iron out, fine grade clay and lube and tripple :thumbup:
