    From the description of the new 3" Griot's backing plate, "Griots Garage 3 inch HD Backing Plate can be used with the Griots Garage 3 inch and 6 inch Polishers for precision detailing in small areas!"

    If I remember correctly from having one, the threads are way smaller on the GG3. Also, like Mike said, too meaty for the 3". I didn't think the GG3 had enough oomph. I sold it and got a Bigfoot Mini.

    I do have 2 GG6's. One of them will be getting this new backing plate

    All it is, is a length of peel and stick neoprene type rubber weatherstrip. While I don't believe you will find the exact same material at any big box home improvement stores, I'm sure some specialty places may carry such, and am sure you could find such at places like McMaster-Carr.

    Mine never stayed stuck very long, the ends began to lift even though I fully degreased the Shroud with 91% IPA prior to installation.

    Thus I had to again come behind a day later with a couple drops of Crazy Glue to re-affix.
    Try this too. Mousepad from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 $4.95 free ship. Clean rubber side with IPA and LET DRY. 1/2" 3M emblem tape, top and bottom of spindle. I added contact cement in the middle, but I always overkill.
