    Slow Speed Rotary Buffer + UC. What pad?

    AS the title suggests, I have a slow speed Rotary Buffer. Ultimate Compound. But confused on the pads.
    There are way too many types of Pads for me to understand and select. Car colour is Black. Toyota. I can get LC pads locally.
    Also, I will coating with it CQuartz afterwards.
    Also want to make sure, that UC doesnt only cover the scratches or swirls, but actually remove them. So I can apply Cquartz later on after wiping it down (any oils left behind)

    Re: Slow Speed Rotary Buffer + UC. What pad?

    Pad choice will depend on the amount of cut you need. If you post up some pictures showing the condition of the paint I can give you a solid recommendation. Also what size backing plate are you using?

    Ultimate Compound most definitely removes defects and does not fill.

    Since you are using a rotary, and dealing with black paint I would recommend following up with a polish like M205 or ultimate polish to refine things. Otherwise when you coat with CQuartz any defects (rotary buffer marks) will be locked in.

    Something I highly recommend as your final step is CarPro Essence. This is a light polish and primer for CQuartz and will save you the tedious step of wiping down the car multiple times after compounding and saves you the step of polishing.
    Though I need to double check if that can be applied by rotary... A rotary may not work the best with it.

    Here are my steps prior to coating a vehicle:

    Wash using Iron-X snow foam to decontaminate
    Clay
    Compound (wiping off compound after each section) Pad choice depends on level of correction needed.
    Polish with CarPro Essence. I use Meg's yellow polishing pads for this step. Wipe off after each section. Essence doesn't do well with long buffing cycles. 2-3 Section passes with it and be done.
    Apply CQuartz

    Some scratches here and there. Haziness. Plus too much swirls.
