    If you kept the package they come in you can put them back in the package after they have been washed and dried.

    Re: NEW! DA Foam Discs and Backing Plates

    I know this may sound weird but can I use one soft buff polishing pad on a whole car if I clean it on the fly after each panel or step instead of using 3 to 4 per car? Thanks.

    Theoretically, yes you can, but it may not give you the absolute maximum result. That said, when we're talking about "absolute maximum result" we're talking about high end, concours quality finishing, which is probably not your goal here. Cleaning on the fly, to be as effective as possible, should include a process that squeezes as much excess product out of the pad as it does clean the face of the pad of paint residue and dried product around the perimeter of the pad. Failing to squeeze this excess out often leads to the pad loading with product, which can compromise the tools ability to spin that pad.

    If you're not doing real heavy cutting it's easier to get away with fewer pads. But it's always a good idea to have an extra pad or three on hand in case something goes wrong - like lifting the tool at speed and having it fling the pad across the garage. Where it will inevitably land butter side down, in the dirtiest corner of the garage.

    Hey guys, has the Meguiars 3 Inch Backing Plate(DBP3) been discontinued? I can't find it to purchase online. I wanted to buy it so that I could use my DA Power System Pads on my PC 7424XP,

    I don't think so? ... I hope not!

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Hi Nick, thank you for the response. Could you please confirm the actual diameter in millimeters of the 5 Inch (DBP5) and 3 Inch (DBP3) backing plates respectively please?

    Thanks.
