Looks good. Few scratches remaining but overall looks like it os going to clean up really nice. If you need something a bot stronger to clean up the remaining scratches, let me know and I'll set you up with something.

Thats before. That kit will be changing shortly as we phase in the flat pads. We may include a polish as well. The price will be adjusted accordingly.

I do need something stronger to get rid of the deeper scratches... what can I use besides wet sanding?


thanks!

We have a couple polishes that should work. Maybe bring the car out and we'll try something. If you cant bring it out, I'd suggest trying Menz Power Finish.

Are the flat pads better than the bumpy ones? I was actually thinking of picking that kit up within this month lolz. Now I don't know if I should hold off...unless the price is going to go up, then I might get it now

Price will be going up, but only by a couple dollars. Nothing substantial. We have sold out of the CCS pads now so all kits will come with theflat pads. The flat pads seem to be a bit smoother. You really notice it on a rotary, not so much on the PC.

Our kit is $280 but also comes with 4"pads, towels, pad cleaning brush and Menz Power Finish. We only have two different 5.5" pads in our kit but experience has shown that for 99% of enthusiasts, they are the only two pads you'll need. See here.
