    Re: To 3k sand or not

    IMO if the paint is that trashed and a aggressive method needs to be used..put a paint gauge on it before anything else.

    3000k versus rotary with a wool pad and compound would be a close race in...

    Re: Leather on a new to me CR-V

    Try Griot's Leather 3 in 1..Cleans, conditions and protects. Leaves a nice satin finish and a light leather scent.

    It appears that the OP is talking about trashed paint. Wouldn't consider using a rotary with a wool pad and compound to smooth out orange peel. Maybe a denim pad and a da would work..dunno never...

    Re: To 3k sand or not

    After sanding with 3k you still need to polish and a lot of time this will require a 2 step polish.

    Any time you can compound and polish to get the job done would be better than wet sanding.

    Re: To 3k sand or not

    You don't need a wool pad and compound to burn through clear coat. Buffing with a foam pad and polish with a rotary can cause dull paint in a hurry.

    Re: To 3k sand or not

    I would never wet sand todays oem paint unless absolutely necessary. Don't let the 3k grit fool you..you can remove a lot of clear with 3k paper.

    Re: Something for plastic cowl on trucks?

    Just the opposite.. just like Reload would not last on plastic as Dlux would.

    Here's your comparison:

    Re: Something for plastic cowl on trucks?

    Not a good comparison of Reload vrs. a trim coating. You seem to like Blackfire Trim and Tire Sealant..try using Blackfire spray sealant on that same plastic cowl and see how long it lasts.

    Re: In the market for new woolies

    Ever heard of Wheel Woolies for wheels? Never heard of a wool pad or hybrid called a Woolie. Look at your links, no mention of Woolies. Now search for wheel woolie.

    Re: ultima tire and trim protectant?

    Perl is a water based dressing and like Mgavin said, the durability is 1-3 weeks. Up to 3 months is stretching it somewhat.
