    I've read the Menzerna Power Gloss is some powerful stuff. Not sure about the rest. No experience with any of those though.

    Re: Rubbing compound & heavy durty polish selection

    Just to clear things up, the only time you will need such a compound is after doing something like wetsanding with 1200 grit sand paper or you happened to encounter a rock hard clear coat from a Chevy Corvette, old Ford Pickup, or the new Mercedes Benz scratch-resistant clear.

    With that said, I am 95% sure that the UDM doesn't have enough power to use Meguiar's M85, and remember that M85 is more or less a Wool-pad only compound. I believe that the 3M product is also in the same catagory if I am not mistaken. The other's I can not speak for.

    thanks for clearly about compound so if the paint has a heavy swirl mark which polish best to use let's say IP,SIP, or SSR2.5 ? use with ccs orange pad? and then polish them 2 or 3 passes until the swirl mark gone?

    sorry i may ask stupid question but i wont buy the thing that the same product line that i had. :D

    If they are heavy swirls that let's say a IP/SIP can not take out with a cutting pad, then you may want to try a wool pad. If that still is not enough, then you would try something like Powergloss or M85 with a wool pad. You may be working on a hard clear coat, but the only way to find out is just to keep working on it.

    I have used that 3M product before with a rotary and wool pad with fair results . But after using it you will need to come back with a finer polish to finish up .

    Re: Rubbing compound & heavy durty polish selection

    Best compound available now is 3M 3000 Extra Cut via a wool pad on a rotary - then get the SIP or IP out and finish up with 3M UltrafinaSE with the 3M blue pad. And I'd get a Makita or Dewalt instead of a Flex, they're less money, and can do more correction. This is my opinion, of course, not looking to get into a whizzing match with anyone.
