    Re: Best combination with Sonax perfect finish - help

    WRPT That is hard question to answer as a beginner enthusiast.

    Let be put it this way for better understanding I would want to go the little harder way but remove all defects and bring back the gloss.

    I am not too sure will that require more aggressive compounds polishers or pads such as the MF and wool pads which as seen in most you tube videos and to be honest it was more technical and confusing.

    Appreciate your advice which is appropriate as a beginner to lay hands on then climb the ladder of perfection.


    Thanks

    Re: Best combination with Sonax perfect finish - help

    After all your advice successful completed my first project by using the following
    One step :
    Rupes Duetto and min
    Rupes yellow pads
    Rupes Blue pads
    Sonax perfect finis
    Sonax polymer netshied

    Steps :

    Decontamination using Geyon iron removal
    Foam wash using MJJC foam canon
    Clay barred
    Sonax perfect finish with Rupes yellow pads
    Finally Sonax polymer net shield with lake country gold pads by hand

    Pics : please share your comments on the finish

    I had only one issue there was lot of dusting during my polishing stage. I heard that Sonax perfect finish had minimal to no dusting what could be the reason

    Looks great! Nice work!

    The dusting can be used to much of polish on the pads or working the polish to long or use the pads to long so they gets saturated with polish or no cleaning of the residue on the pads between reload of polish or you have a lot of dead paint to polishing off or the temps and humidity is on the high. Some reasons on there own that could cause dusting or a mix of them. So it's hard to pin point why it's dusting without knowing more of the method you polishing with. And a to high of speed on the polisher can dry out the polish faster too. But PF is not a total free from dusting so with just a little over the hill on the points above and you can see it dusting. But if it was not a lot of dust then don't worrie about it.

    Thank you @swetm

    Speed of the machine was at 4.5 all through the work. I checked the bottle the manufactured date was 2016. I used 3 pea drops only

    Not sure why that happened . Will keep your points when I take the next project

    Did you clean the pad after every pass?

    Car looks good, but you need to use a proper hand held light or the sun to see the true finish.

    No I did not clean after every pass but after completing half of each panel.

    I checked using Rupes LL 150 swirl finder torch.

    I did not see any imperfections however not very clear how to spot Haze
