    This is an aggressive compound using top notch abrasive technology and this is what I'm talking about when I say it's all about the abrasive technology.


    Next up... SONAX Cut & Finish with a LC Hybrid foam polishing pad on the FLEX 3401.

    Wow, finished out really nice for heavy cut and wool! It's hard to tell by looking at the picture on my phone but I don't see any compounding haze. Mind if I ask which wool pad and backing plate you used? I love Sonax products. I've been using PF on orange hybrid pads quite a bit lately.

    Just to note...

    There was haze or micro-marring but it's caused by the aggressive nature of a wool cutting pad.

    I used wool for speed and then recovered by switching to foam.

    Just finished machine applying Dodo Juice Banana Armour now it's time to wipe off and then get out of here.

    Looks awesome already mike!
    Btw what kind of wool pad is that?
    Any hints on upcoming sales for the flexx x3401? I want to pull the trigger on one of those bad boys.

    ***Bump***


    Have not forgotten about this thread, just so busy all the time with great projects!


    Wanted to bump this for my friend Jason who I just got off the phone with. Jason is buffing out an oxidized Cabin Cruiser boat and this is the pad I'm recommending to use with his FLEX 3401 and the heavy cut cleaner/wax in the Marine 31 line to do a one-step restoration on oxidized white gel-coat.

    He did list products he used at the end of the OP.

    It's the 6.5" 50/50 Wool Acrylic Polishing pad by LC


    Thanks Mike, for sharing another great car and what looks like a great pad/polish combo.

    That's the first 1940 Pontiac 5-Window Coupe I've ever buffed out. Don't actually see them very often.

    I like how the late 1930s and early 1940s era coups look. Most are 5-windows like this Pontiac, but there are few 3-windows like the 1941 Chrysler Businessman's Coupe




    Just a different look without the back windows...






    Aggressive stance though...
