PC and Menzerna IP Tips
I've seen other posts about removing swirls with a PC, but I was wondering if anybody has any specific advice for using Menzerna IP with a PC. I just got a PC, some LC pads, and Menzerna IP and FP II.
My truck's finish isn't too bad to begin with, but there are some swirls, and I'm looking for that eye popping mirror-like finish. Here's a 'Before' pic, just after claying.
I applied a couple of 8" lines of IP on half a door panel, and then spread them around with an orange pad. I used the PC at 4, and applied the product left and right, and then up and down in a figure-8 pattern. In some spots the product dusted pretty quickly, and in other spots there was still a thick layer of product. I wiped that off, but I didn't seem much improvement.
After that, I decided to experiment with some different techniques. A friend of mine suggested that I needed to use the PC at 6 to work with Menzerna. I tried that today, but just as it looked like I was making progress, I experienced pad failure. The pad started deforming, so I stopped to inspect the pad. Everything looked fine, so I started again. Within seconds, the pad seemed to disintegrate. I mean it was completely gone. Later I found it across the street.
This is a reminder for everyone to always wear eye protection.

WOW, you better ask for a new pad. Thats a defective one.
I never had problems with IP using yellow LC pad at speed around 5 - 6. Finish it off with FP white LC pad and your finish will be good.Detailing is not an obession, its a way of life.

Whoa...your are lucky that didn't hit you. Where did you buy the pad from? I would contact them and ask them to send you a replacement, because there is no reason for a pad to tear up like that on its initial use.

I'll give Menzerna another shot at speed 6 once I replace the cutting pad. I'll contact the retailer to see if they'll replace it. Thanks for the tips.
