    Re: holograms all over a 2007 Honda Laguna Blue Pearl S2000

    I don't think I need to use compound, the s2000 is in moderate condition

    This is a good next step at this point in the projects.

    No matter which version of Porter Cable you have, you need to be on the 5.0 to 6.0 speed setting. In order to remove swirls, the pad must be rotating ageists the surface, not just vibrating.

    Holograms, also called Buffer Trails or Rotary Buffer Swirls are a type of below surface defect. Everything you need to know about removing below surface defects is explained in detail in the below thread.



    Tips and Techniques for using the PC 7424XP Dual Action Polisher to remove Below Surface Defects


    Also notice how in some of the pictures you'll see there are black lines drawn on the back of the backing plates used on the Porter Cable Dual Action Polisher, this is to make it easy to see if the pad is in fact rotating or just vibrating.

    Use a permanent marker to place a line on the back of your backing plates to make sure your pads are in fact rotating while removing swirls and not just vibrating.

    The Four Star Machine Glaze & Polish is stated as being able to remove compounding haze, fine sanding marks and light scratches with a cutting pad so test with the polishing pad to a small section first and make sure you're getting GREAT results using a polishing pad.

    After I compound a car, even with all the edges taped off, I still wash all the dust and residue off afterwards...and I usually take some Menzerna Top Inspection and spray EVERY little crevice/crack/emblem/you name it and wipe inside that area with a microfiber. This always ensures that you'll have no residue left in the cracks.

    Is there any update to this thread?

    Have you removed the swirls successfully?

    Re: holograms all over a 2007 Honda Laguna Blue Pearl S2000

    No sorry, I havent got a chance to do it, its been very cold here in NJ. I stack up a whole shelf of products cause of AG having it's sales. I can't wait to use it, I have a 05 Mazda Miata ( purple ) 10 Vw GTI ( gray ) some DD Toyotas, and maybe more will sign up.

    im trying to inform my co-workers in the dealerships that the Detailer does a crappy job, still they don't believe I can do better. I guess I gotta prove them wrong. but Im not gonna do it for $60 like the detailer is charging them lol, Im not trying to take business away from my dealership, just informing my CO-Workers, not customers. so sad to see a $50,000 + car deliver with swirls, can't do anything about it.

    Thanks for the follow-up...

    I noticed this was a Sticky in the Circular Polishers forum group but when I read through it there was on conclusion so I thought I would revive the thread.
