    Re: Compound selection after 2000 grit

    Had a chance to work over some body shop cars over the last couple of days. The 3D compound blew me away! I used it with a variety of pads and machines and it was phenomenal.

    Flex rotary, Orbital, and pixie made fast work of everything. I canít tell you how much time I saved in two days!

    Turns out I ordered the wrong Menzerna compounds, I ordered the ceramic compound thatís generally for Mercedes ceramic clear coat

    Good deal! Ya that 3D ACA 500 is nothing short of amazing and finishes down insanely nice, all things considered.

    You really wouldn't think a product would have any business being able to cut like that but also finish down as nice as it does.

    Yeah, Iím going to mess with it some more and see the versatility of it a bit more. I can see it being a go to for body shop work.

    Re: Compound selection after 2000 grit

    Summer of 02 I was working for a Nissan Dealership and the GM found out I knew how to cut and buff. I mistakenly showed him my work and then next week I had 2 trucks of damaged paint vehicles from the auction and spent the rest of the summer polishing cars in Annapolis heat with no AC.

    ACA 500 is awesome, go big pads and plow through things. Remember they are auction cars. Balance your labor/cost.

    Well those trucks have come and gone and I ended up using car pro ultra cut and it made fast work of it.

    ACA 500 worked well but the ultra cut was worth the extra cost in the time that it saved me.

    Even though they went to auction they still had to pass an inspection so Iím glad I didnít cut too many corners. I had a C8 rejected because the bottom of a rocker panel had orange peel Compound selection after 2000 grit
