    Those badly dried out paints can just be problematic no matter what, and they like an oily product to help with lubrication. D300 should be better in this regard than M105, but it's still going to have its limits. Obviously it's darn near impossible to just say "use this product/pad on this paint and that product/pad on that paint" as each case is unique. But we've used this on delicate paint, very hard paint, brand new factory paint, old factory paint, and even aftermarket single stage and, with a few technique adjustments here and there, gotten excellent results across the board.

    Glad I am keeping you safely employed!

    Dried out, and only 2 years old! Poor thing had suffered a very hard life... I understand about the variability on each and every vehicle. People on MOL often talk of a particular manufacturer's paint being hard or soft and the workability of such, but each and every car, even within in the same make and model can vary, just depending on the treatment it has endured. It must give you guys a headache trying to develop products to cover all bases!

    Definitely a turning point for the detailing world. Write this date down in your diary. I'm looking forward to all the reviews while I anxiously work through all of my existing pads and product.

    Re: Using Meguiar's D/A Microfiber Correction System

    Gosh! I may have to try this! Question though. The compound and compounding pads are really what I'm interested in. Can you do this process: use the compound with the microfiber compounding pad, use a finishing polish such as M205 or Menzerna Nano polish with a regular foam pad, then follow up with the wax or sealant of choice? Will you get less impressive results than if you followed up with the finishing wax? Also, when you cleaned the pad using compressed air, did you turn the machine on or leave it off? I assume you turned it on?

    Re: Using Meguiar's D/A Microfiber Correction System

    Finally this system is out! Thanks for the in-depth how-to write-up Mike! This will really help people learn how to use the product. I'm excited to get my hands on this system! It seems that removing swirls will be a breeze! That correction job on your niece's Corolla was fantastic especially completing it at 3 hours!

    I also can't believe how compress air removes the spent product or paint from doing that single stage london cab!!!

    Great job Meguiar's! You guys will put all rotaries to retirement hahaha!

    Thanks for the detailed write up Mike.

    I was fortunate enough to be allowed to try the system out by the local distributor using their pre-production sample. To say that I was blown away is an understatement. Yes, there is a slight learning curve as you adjust your technique, but once you're over that it's like being given a magic wand.

    The biggest benefits for me were the long, dust free working time, ease of wipe off and excellent defect removal.

    One question I do have - the G220V2 comes with the W68DA backing plate. I used this together with the DMC6 pad. Do you foresee any problems with this combo?

    Has anyone tried the D/A MFCS on a clear bra? Or like decals or stripes, don't do it.

    Michael, invariably people will try these new pads with different compounds/finishing polishes, be they Megs other polishes or other brands.

    Any comments on what they should expect if they try this?

    Absolutely you can do this. If you've got a favorite polish and/or wax that you'd rather use, go for it. The Finishing Wax in this system is designed to do multiple things: remove hazing from the compounding step, refine the finish and add gloss, offer protection, and do it all in a single, very fast step. That's huge for volume reconditioning shops, but if you're detailing and charging premium dollars, then extra steps are almost mandatory.
