    Re: RUPES Mille Review by 2black1s

    Hi - looking for some Mille advice.

    Does the new line of DA course / fine pads and polishes superseed the Mille specific pads and compounds from a couple of years ago?

    Have you considered the Uno Protect for the AOI steps?

    Is the Mille capable of performing one step processes on the average auto-car wash damaged paint whilst still returning a finish on par with its DA counterpart?

    Thanks.

    Yes. The Mille specific products and pads have been discontinued. I think there's a RUPES video that explains this in detail.

    I've only used it once and the car in question only had light defects - but it worked perfect. See my review here,

    Review: RUPES UNO PROTECT - AIO or All-in-One with Synthetic Protection

    Thanks.

    Yes with the exception of "some" cars with soft paint. Gear-driven orbital is more aggressive than free spinning orbital. Sometimes on soft paint, a free spinning orbital, all other factors kept the same, will finish out nicer.


    This is where experience comes in handy.

    And I'm sure John aka 2black1s will chime in with his thoughts...

    Thank you and hello!

    I usually lurk over on detailing world but after watching some of your longer youtube videos whilst locked down in the UK I thought I would join up here!

    I have a bulky old rotary and a lhr75e mini DA copy and have been looking at maybe adding the Mille to the mix so all the info provided by yourself and this thread has been very interesting.

    I have nothing to add to Mike's response except that I have not used the Uno Protect AIO.

    As for pads, I haven't determined my favorites yet but you can read my pad experiences up to this point-in-time in my previous posts.

    This weekend I'll be putting the Mille to work on an AIO project. I'll post some comments once completed.
    This is awesome! In the process of building a home with my fiance (soon to be wife in June). Will def take this idea to the father in law who is quite handy with wood crafts. This would be perfect for my soon to be detailing garage....
