    If using the flex you would divide that same hood into only 2 sections correct? The secret technique?

    Oh hell no. With the BEAST I would knock out HUGE chunks of paint - as large as makes sense for the panel being buffed.

    See my article here,

    Why I call the FLEX 3401 the BEAST! by Mike Phillips


    Here's the hood, look how I divided the hood into 4 LARGE sections to compound the paint.






    For the polishing step, I tackled one have of the hood at a time.





    I can't say it any more clearly - the BEAST is a BEAST!

    No secret, it's called putting the time behind the buffer to learn how to make it dance on paint.
