    Hey, man. How's things with you? Good I hope.

    I have two questions for you, if you don't mind:

    1) what is your opinion on the nanoskin system vs. clay?

    2) If used on paint with just micro-marring, would the Klasse AIO be an alternative to machine polishing?

    I value your opinion on these matters, man. Many thanks!

    t/c primo.

    Thanks, primo. Yeah, I thought as much. I am a believer in "just buy good and buy once" Just thought that maybe you had tried one, or heard something about them. Agreed on them looking like they would be a bitch to use. Anyway, will take your advice and wait until I can get a full-sized unit. Thanks again, buddy.

    Hey, primo! Got a question for ya'. My funds for "extras" lately have been at an all-time low. Anyway, in lieu of of a PC random-orbit or the like, what is your thought on the drill-driven units offered by Meguiars? I know they are not ideal, but just wondering if they would work in a pinch, or if it would be a total waste of valuable $$. I trust your opinion, so give it to me straight! LOL! t/c man.

    i usually suggest 5 pads minimum for a car, two to compound, two to polish, and just one to apply your wax or sealant. i clean the pad with the brush and remove it from the polisher to cool and use the second pad to continue on with the next panel...then of course i do this for the entire vehicle. IMO, that is why the 5 pad packages are pretty good.

    of course, then when youre finished, you need to really clean the pads good to make sure they past.

    if youre still set on only using one pad for the etire car per step (polish/finish etc.), then look up "cleaning buffing pad on the fly". this is a good alternative, but i like to brush/clean on the fly and swap pads every panel.

    hey Bruce;

    no problem glad to help.

    i usually use a few of each different colour pad for the job, but i have an endless supply. if you only intend to use one pad of each colour, then you should clean the pad often while using. if youre using the foam pads, get a pad brush and use it after every section, or panel at a minumum to clean the pad. you want to get spent polish and spend clear out of the pad so youre not griniding it into the rest of the car. also, when you remove the spend polish from teh pad, you will be working the pad cooler. if the pad gets too hot, you run the risk of delaminating the pad from the velcro backing. not the end of the world if the machine is off when it happens, but you can cause a boat load of damage if the machine is running and this happens.

    Hey Jeff, Sorry to bombard you, but one more question before I place my order. I am curious and have always struggled with whether to use more than one of the same pad when polishing or waxing? I am familiar with the need to switch pads from polishing to waxing as they are different applications, and as such different requirements. And of course I know when polishing, one may have to switch pads depending on the level of aggressiveness or lack of is required. But within the specific application, is there a requirement to switch to a clean pad? I typically in the past, unless the pad has begun to show signs of ware, used one pad and then thorughly cleaned it when finished. I plan to order from Auto Pro as you suggested and will order their backing pad as well as their pads. Thanks again. Best.

    Thanks much Jeff, it is what I figured and afraid of. I was not planning to buy a new backing plate right now, but you sound so high on their pads and I value your suggestions, so I may have to reconsider. Thanks again.
