Also, have you done a complete pant correction with just the Flex? How long did it take you and what shape was the paint in? How much pressure did you need to use?
Yeah, I left the handle attached. I actually like the way it feels so far.
I tinkered with an old hood on one of my own cars. It was a junkyard hood with some pretty serious rids and several spots that looked like wet sanding gone bad. The Flex took care of it all! I used Megs #95 followed by Megs #82. Not a lot of pressure at all. My second car I used Megs Paint Reconditioning Cream and it seems effortless to clean up a pretty nasty and discolored white car.
As for speed, I think it will come down to being able to finish the job faster just because I don't have to go over things twice, or revert to a heavier cut pad after I've started with something I hoped would work. Other than that, the speed to process the car is probably going to be the same.
