    Meguiar's Quik Tips Video Series - Using the G110v2 Dual Action Polisher

    Meguiar's Quik Tips Video Series - Using the G110v2 Dual Action Polisher

    After viewing the video clip you can scroll down to view a step by step refresher, with still images shot during the filming of the video...




    Please keep in mind that this video, and the others in the series, are not designed to be definitive how to guides but rather, as the name implies, Quik Tips that address the most common questions and mistakes associated with each topic.

    Removing swirls and waxing your car may sound like a lot of work, but with Meguiar's Dual Action Polisher, achieving show car results has never been faster & easier.

    Keep in mind, this machine is not just for "Pros" as even a novice can quickly master the use of our Dual Action Polisher. It will allow you to get better results, in less time...without the possibility of damaging your paint. It's great for removing swirls, oxidation, stains, scratches or simply applying a coat of wax.

    Begin by washing and drying your car thoroughly and if needed, clay your car using our Smooth Surface Clay Kit.

    For removing defects like oxidation, stains or scratches, we recommend using our yellow W8207 Soft Buff 2.0 Foam Polishing Pad and Meguiar's Ultimate Compound. Simply attach the foam polishing pad and set the speed to approximately 4.5 - 5. Apply Meguiar's Ultimate Compound directly to the pad in either an "X" pattern or a circular pattern towards the outer edge of the pad, then place the pad flat on the paint. Never switch the tool on without having the pad firmly against the paint - the product will splatter and the pad could be dislodged from the backing plate.

    Turn the machine on and begin buffing with moderate pressure in an overlapping pattern while keeping the pad flat against the paint at all times. Work a small section at a time, generally no larger than about 2' x 2', and cover the area in methodical, overlapping passes. Move the tool slowly over the paint - fast, sweeping motions will yield less than optimum results. Apply pressure to the handle directly over the pad with one hand, and simply guide the tool with your other hand. Applying pressure near the end of the tool near the power cord will result in leaning on the edge of the pad, which will stop the pad from rotating. This is not good as you need the constant rotation of the pad in order to achieve results.

    As you work the product in this small area it will start to become very thin and translucent in appearance. That is a good indication that it is time to stop buffing and wipe off the excess product with a clean Supreme Shine Microfiber towel. Never buff until the product is completely dry. After buffing this initial area, closely evaluate the surface to gauge your progress. If a second appliation is needed to remove the defects, then simply apply additional Meguiar's Ultimate Compound as needed until all defects have been removed, then move on to the next section.

    For waxing, attach our black W9207 Soft Buff 2.0 Foam Finishing Pad, and set the speed to approximately 3.5 - 4. Apply your favorite Meguiar's wax directly to the pad then place the pad flat on the paint. Turn the machine on and begin buffing with light pressure in an overlapping pattern while keeping the pad flat against the paint at all times. Unlike working with Ultimate Compound you can now apply a thin coat of wax to all the painted surfaces of the car. There is no need to work just small areas at a time

    Re-Apply the wax to the pad as often as needed until the entire vehicle has a thin, even coat of wax on it. Keep in mind, however, that a little wax goes a long way. You only need to apply a very thin and uniform coat of wax for maximum results. Overusing a wax only causes problems with drying time and removal once dry. Applying wax with the G110v2 makes it easy to apply this thin, uniform coat of wax. When the wax is dry, use a separate, clean Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel for easy removal.

    There you have it, show car results in less time using Meguiar's G110v2 Dual Action Polisher!

    Is it now not necessary to clean the pad, on the fly?

    Hi Rico, Yes it is still necessary to clean the pad on the fly often...

    Keep in mind, these videos are not designed to be a complete "How-To", but more of the top tips regarding a product / procedure we want to share within a 2-3 minute timeframe

    Wow. This video makes me feel better as I always move the polisher slower than that with UC or M105, and I still thought I was going too fast.

    I guess I'm on target, if not a bit slow.
