2002 Viper ACR

Polish Only with more to come when I have a change to finish it.

Polisher - Flex XC 3401 VRG
Pads - Corbra Cross Cut Pads
Polish - Menzerna Micro Polish

I received my Flex on Friday and tried it out this weekend. All's I can say is I love this machine. Very powerful, comfortable and well balanced. I was going to use my Matabo for part of the detail but I ended up using the Flex for the whole thing.

Not to many cars have more curves then a generation II Viper and the new Corba Cross Cut pads did a nice job.

The car have never been polished before but it has been very well taken care of and only had light swirls. I love Menzerna Micro Polish. Takes care of light swirls fast and leaves next to no dust. I used distilled water for the pad conditioner.

Pictures after Polish Only.


I hope to finish it up this week with some Souveran Paste over Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant.

Thanks PT, sparkie, jgh1987, mingraygt, Andy Wayan, killrfake, makdaddy626, supercharged, Jimmie and Z06-Goose. I appreciate your nice comments.

sparkie, I do really like the Flex.

Andy, I think I'm going to put on 2 coats of Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant then top it off with a coat of Souveran Paste. I'm never in a hurry when I do my cars. It will probably take me a couple of hours per coat over 3 days after letting the sealant cure 24 hours inbetween coats.

makdaddy, sorry you couldn't make it down to Florida this weekend. Your going to love your Flex.

SuperchargeD, I really like the Corba Cross Cut Pads especially on this car. The car has curves in curves. The pads looked like they were forming around the curves when polishing.

Nice Gary! I wouldn't tilt the hood too much the wet paint may run:) The paint looks perfect for your DGPS and Souv. Make sure you post up the pics of the finished product. I too am thinking about a Flex purchase!
