Re: How much clear coat will....remove
Is this a trick question? Most blue pads have no cut and a finishing glaze doesn't have any abrasives so the answer is none. Even a PC with yellow pad and M105 doesn't remove that much clear. DAs are designed to be very safe.
Now don't go crazy, use proper technique and pressure. This is the love hate thing about a PC, use too much pressure and the pad stops it's orbital rotation and vibrates. The reason it's a love hate thing is it doesn't take that much pressure to stop it. The love is you aren't going to mess up your car!
