    HD Polish Replacement

    I know this was discontinued dome time ago. I managed to find some new old stock and just finished up the last of it so now I need to find a replacement.

    The HD polish was great in that it had some decent correction ability, was virtually dust free and finished down to a coating ready finish. I do wipe with a prep before applying a coating but the HD polish was very clean after it was broken down and wiped off.

    Looking for a replacement- what do you recommend? I have M205 and its good, better for cars that needed more correction than HD polish could handle but the HD after the 205 gets me a better finish. I also Have essence and that is good but not quite as good as the HD polish finished.

    Re: HD Polish Replacement

    Sonax has some really great polishes, imho. They can cut well if needed and all finish well. Easy to use too. Also, check out the griots boss creams. I have some on deck, but I bet their perfecting cream would suit you.

    Sticking my nose in here, but--isn`t there an equivalent to the HD Polish in the 3D line? Or was the HD Polish strictly a boutique product?

    Re: HD Polish Replacement

    I still love the results from Optimum Hyper-Polish... It will cut as long as you want it to, and finish down really clear and glossy. It`s been around so long, I hope it is still out there...
    I only use my Makita Rotary on all paint work, so that might make a difference in my experiences with products...

    Aw gee, discontinued, huh? Wish I`d ordered another bottle when I could have

    Should I ever polish a vehicle again, I`ll probably go with Griot`s..but I`m watching this thread to see what others think.

    Same here. I`m going to go with Griot`s if I ever need to correct. Last product I touched was M101 which quite satisfied me.
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    Re: HD Polish Replacement

    3D ACA 520 is probably the closest equivalent from 3D.

    Anybody here have an opinion on how the ACA 520 compares to the old HD Polish? What about the seemingly similar AAT 502?
