    This is a very complete kit with everything you need to refinish headlights that have deteriorated to the point where only sanding can save them and/or for doing spot sanding or spot damp-sanding to remove isolated defects out of fresh paint or factory paint.




    After opening the box you'll find a soft case that hold everything inside with extra pockets on the outside for other tools or accessories...





    Here I've spread everything out to show the complete selection of products found in the kit...



    There are two backing plates with 4 different adapters which enables you to attach the backing plate to just about every known thread size used for small air tools.




    The kit comes with 2 Chicago Pneumatic Air Tools, one is a Mini Dual Action Sander and the other is a Mini Rotary Polisher and both are clearly marked on the outside housing.





    The Mini Dual Action Sander
    After determining the correct adapter for sander you rotate the black hub until you see a hole align with the cutout on the exterior casing.







    The kit comes with a wrench and a dowel type rod with a handle.



    Place the steel shaft of the dowel through the cutout to pin the rotating assembly against the housing, this will enable you to attach the backing plate and tighten the backing plate to the rotating assembly.










    Now you're ready to attach the foam interface pad...



    The Meguiar's 3 inch Spot Repair Kit uses hook and loop style interface, so align the loop side of the interface pad, (the side with the "M" on it), and attach to the hook side of the face of the backing plate and do your best to align so it's centered or true.




    Next select the grade of Unigrit Disc you want to use and align it to the interface and press on firmly.



    Here's the sander with interface and Unigrit sanding disc attached...






    You're ready to go to work...

    Continued...

    The Mini Rotary Polisher

    The rotary polisher comes with a wrench to hold the spindle assembly.



    After selecting the appropriate adapter for your tool, affix it to the backing plate first making sure the washer is between the backing plate and the adapter and then thread into the spindle assembly and tighten down a 1/4 turn after snug.








    Select the right buffing pad for the task at hand and then align the backing plate to the hook and loop interface and press firmly.





    You're ready to start polishing...



    The kit also comes with a hand backing pad for working by hand...



    And also a 3" rotary backing plate...



    There are two 10 ounce bottles of M105 and M205...



    Everything you need for professional results...



    A fold out poster is included that shows step-by-step prodedures...

    What compressor is required to run these tools? I could not find any specs on either Meguiar's or Chicago Pneumatic's web sites.

    I notice they do not include a sealant, do they recommend one?

    I asked the Meguiar's rep (At Detailfest last year) how much air the tools used. I don't remember his exact answer but it was a lot like 14 cfm at 90 psi.

    I thought a while back they had switched tools to composite body ones?

    Their new high end line is. But they still make the metal body tools too.

    They were supposed to have done that, yes... but curiously they have recently released the Chicago Pneumatic (CP) DA and Rotary as stand-alone "replacements" packaged with an S3BP under the part numbers those new composite tools were supposed to have had (G-3ROT and G-3DA). I see that AG carries the DA version; another vendor has both:
