Thanks very much! Jaysus that's some difference!!!! World or wool lol! Yea I use rotary and LC pads which are good but don't give 100% correction or what the wool does cheers mate, fantastic work btw
Cool wud u opt for LC pads for refining??? Loads of ppl talking about the chemical guys hex pads, I do detail just trying to fine the opinions for the best results and time savers
must admit my wool pad(purple one fron LC) has saved me alot of time when ive done some cars, gets the deeper marks out alot easier than the normal CCS pads.
i wouldnt be without my wool especially as the majority of cars we have done so far are VAG and we all know how hard the paint is on these
How do wool pads compare with the standard type? Are the benefits just the temperature of the panels when using wool?
Some very useful info in this thread
I tried to correct my S3 with my DA last year but barely made an impact. Very tempted to have a crack at it again with a wool pad on a rotary.
Well unless u know wat ur at offence, I wouldn't try a wool pad on a rotary! A DA is just a slower way of correcting tho won't get the correction that a rotary will!!! You should of got pretty decent results with a DA given the products and technique are correct!!! I gave the A3 a lick today using the chemical guys hex pads good pads tho clog too quick
Wonder if Polished Bliss has anything to add about Wool pads? John??
I have one but haven't used it yet and am wondering if I were to detail my car again this summer should I opt for the Wool?!
There's absolutely no reason why, with the correct pad and polish choice, and the right technique, a DA can't correct VAG paint.
It seems to be a common misconception that a rotary is needed on these paints and it just isn't the case.
I corrected my MK5 GTI 2 weekends ago (first time it's been machined by me so there were some scratches from its past life to remove and some swirling) and it was pretty rock hard, as expected. Lake Country Cyan pad with Menzerna RD3.02 (which isn't overly aggressive) did the job - it's a case of using the machine properly: that's not meant to sound big-headed, just that there's a knack to working the machine properly.
It will take longer to correct with DA, rather than rotary, but in almost all cases, it will be possible, especially on factory VAG paint.
Refining is often easier via DA too.
