    Video: Wow! 3M #5000 Grit Polishing I mean Sanding Discs!


    Did some comparison testing between,

    #1500 Grit Sanding Discs - Meguiar's
    #1500 Foam Backed Finishing Discs - Meguiar's
    #3000 Foam Backed Finishing Discs - Meguiar's
    #5000 Foam Backed Finishing Discs - 3M
    I'll let the pictures do the talking...

    From left to right...

    #1500 Grit Sanding Disc, #1500 Foam Backed Finishing Disc, #3000 Foam Backed Finishing Disc and #5000 Foam Backed Finishing Disc











    At the #5000 mark you're really starting to restore reflectivity to the paint...

    I'm going to test a very non-aggressive polish with a number of different pads/tools and then I have some other products to play with including some new wool cutting pads.

    Just to note, the 3M #5000 Grit finishing discs were given to me as a sample, we don't currently stock them. We do stock all the Meguiar's Unigrit discs shown in this thread.

    Meguiar's 6" Unigrit Sanding and Finishing Discs

    Meguiar's new Unigrit Sanding Discs are specifically designed for damp-sanding and can be used with a 5/16" orbit sander. These Unigrit discs offer uniform particle size and placement over the face of the disc and are available in both 3" and 6" sizes.

    I went into this thinking I would see a little difference but the difference between the #3000 and the #5000 sanding mark results is DRAMATIC.

    Haven't been able to get to the compounding yet today, other hot projects on the to-do list but will try.
