    What pads did you use prior the gold pad?

    I'm also a 3M guy cos of my Body shop experience, but in the future who knows.

    Meguiar's M100 is designed for use at 1000 RPM, my prediction is this is the trend.

    In my new how-to book I have a section on "Destructive Polishing", has to do with speed and heat...

    Clearcoats don't like heat...

    When I worked at the body shop. I always used the back of my hand to very gently touch the panel. To feel if it is getting to hot.

    Had to be even more careful. Because the car's were just painted about 2 days ago.

    At least at the body shop it's easy to repaint a customers car, detailing you will be stuck with a huge bill. The gold "jeweling" pad is nice.

    It's the final product you would apply, like a wax, sealant, etc.....
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
