Re: NEW Meguiar's DA Microfiber Correction System has revolutionized detailing!

This is FANTASTIC stuff! Just got done taking off the trail rash from close-in tree/brush branches on my WK. In some spots the rash was so deep I had to go over the area 6-7 times to eradicate the scratches, but it works and it's safe - there's no way you can burn your paint with this system.

The directions said to use speed 4 with the cutting compound/pad, I found that for the deep scratches speed 6 was quicker (though that speed did tend to fling the compound around where lower speeds kept the compound on the pad a lot better).

Tomorrow I get to start all over again on my wife's BMW 330xi - we have some dog nail scratches and a few brush scratches I need to get out in preparation for selling (to make room for a 335D).

I tried to take some pics, but I couldn't get any good comparison shots.

Re: NEW Meguiar's DA Microfiber Correction System has revolutionized detailing!

After reading more about this product and how to apply, I think I used waaayyy too much corrective solution. One question I couldn't answer - is the pad itself the abrasive and the corrective compound a lubricant, does the pad just act as a medium for the abrasive compound, or are both the pad and compound abrasive?

And (after reading more How To articles for this product), I have an older PC7424 on which I have to increase the speed setting by 1. So, I should have used a speed of 5 on my PC7424 for correction and 4 for wax instead of 4 and 3 for the newer models. I kinda figured this out by myself (for correction anyway), but it does show how forgiving this system is that I can experiment and learn and not worry about catastrophic errors.

With this kit you want to wash, clay, polish/compound, finishing wax. You could add a layer of sealant or wax on top of it. I think it's also going to be popular to use the cutting compound and then use your own favorite sealant or wax as well.

It's a combination of both the pad and the polish, they both need each other. On an older PC yes it may make more sense to go up to the 5 and 4 for the speeds. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Re: NEW Meguiar's DA Microfiber Correction System has revolutionized detailing!

greg, doing a little research before I use this kit I bought........at meguiars site they talk about the importance of keeping these microfiber pads clean.

they use compressed air.....then a brush.

i went to your site and I can only find a pad cleaning product in a packet for washing the pads when done/

do you have something like this meguiars brush or can you get the meguiars one.......
its their part number WPCB and its new for 2011.

link to brush: http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46209


OR

is there something else to use with these microfiber pads..........


NEXT QUESTION:

I want to use both steps of the DA system BUT THEN I want to use a sealant so I need to remove EVERYTHING FROM THE PAINT.....is there a product to use for that ? I read about peeps using Isoprpyl Alchohol in a 50/50 water to insure removal of any wax or other stuff is left on the finish. That seems kind of scary? so is there a product to use for this step/

thx
rob






hey redrocker T; any tips how you kept the pads clean

Re: NEW Meguiar's DA Microfiber Correction System has revolutionized detailing!

also google how to clean pad on the fly. mike phillips shows a great way to clean your pad w/micrifiber towels without having to wash them. i'm not sure if that applies to the new microfiber pads but did apply to the older foam ones

Re: NEW Meguiar's DA Microfiber Correction System has revolutionized detailing!

thanks for nothing as they seem to be overly stressing how important it is to clean the MF pads properly and have come out with some new products that do that without ruining the pads.



now i will go back to waiting for greg
