    I will be doing a friend`s 02 Camaro. Does anybody know if the paint/cc on this car is soft, medium, or hard? I always start with the least aggressive combo, but I would like to have an idea.

    Yeah, that`s what I thought. Thanks. You think the IP/orange pad with the Flex will do the job?

    I have not used IP or a flex but the Danase Swirl abolisher 2 or 3(sorry can`t remeber what I used)

    and an orange Propel pads on a PC worked great on my brother`s 2002 WS-6(ram air) T/A



    so I would think the IP/orange/flex combo should work great

    FWIW I can tell you that in my experience, IP/orange with the PC isn`t quite enough. I don`t have any direct experience with the Flex, but it seems like that extra horsepower just might do the trick so you don`t have to step up on the pad or product.

    From my experience the plastic panels seem softer than the steel panels.

    Well from my experience IP/orange pad is enough in most cases. I used that combo with a PC on the T/A and it worked well. Naturally it also depends on the condition of the paint. Sometimes multiple passes were required and in some only one. Like everyone has said the paint is a bit on the hard side but I imagine that the FLEX will give you quicker results than a PC. The only think I didn`t like about IP is that it dusted like crazy on me. FPII however was great, no dusting whatsoever and a little longer working time.
