    DA Microfiber Discs Have a Storied Past...

    Finally!

    Soon, virtually everyone will be using Meguiar's DA Microfiber Discs, and enjoying their impressive results.
    One thing is for sure... these little beauties were run through the ringer during development.
    They were used on all sorts of vehicles, with all types of buffing liquids.

    In terms of buffing pads, I didn't use much of anything else except prototype Microfiber Discs.

    It was a tough gig keeping things hushed for sooo many years!

    Doing write-ups was a challenge, too.
    We couldn't show prototypes or even let on that something special was in the works.
    This required "customization" of some posted pics.

    Some examples:

    From this write-up: "Alpine Electronics Imprint RLS Polishing Session"
    In this shot, RDVT4ME and the other pc were shown working on the now famous Alpine Electronics Imprint RLS:


    Actually, they weren't using foam pads at all!


    Two more shots we I couldn't post:

    This was another shot from the write-up:


    The real shot:


    the other pc polishing a difficult area using the Microfiber Disc:



    From this write-up: "Meguiar's *New* M105 Ultra-Cut Compound Makes a SPLASH at Alpine Electronics"

    Close-up of the new Meguiar's G110 Professional Dual Action Polisher:


    And the real shot:


    Can't really see it but I was using a Microfiber Disc on the DA:


    Finally, Jason Rose shown using a "prototype compound with a prototype Microfiber Disc.
    Also note the disc mounted to the machine sitting behind Paul as he wipes the car.



    He kept bugging me to, "Try it!" About the 30th time I said, "I will!"
    Care to guess the prototype liquid? Note: This was January, 2007.

    Where is the real shot for this one? Almost looks like he is using an invisible Rotary.

    Funny, but no. That is a big cotton towel. Folded in half. At speed.

    I feel like I've been lied to my whole life now! So many of these write-ups that I have seen have secretly been testing products and there are pictures of them right in front of our faces! Ahhhhhh What's the truth and what isn't! Does Meguiar's even exist?!?!


    I once put swirls in my paint just to see what it looked like.

    I don't always detail cars, but when I do, I prefer Meguiar's.
    Remove swirls my friends.

    Keeping it a secret was a challenge....but the great part was having an awesome tool to use during that time. I have some very happy customers and they have no idea that an experimental pad was used to make their ride look good. Thanks to Kevin for being my sounding board and go to guy while I was using these pads during early development.

    THANKS KEVIN!!!!
