Sometimes its good to bring stuff up again. I missed the discussion a few months back about Chem Guys products and buffing - mainly cause I was not looking for anything at that moment - or just missed it. Anyway, after seeing this post, I did a search and found the discussion back in November - and I ordered $200 worth of product from them. I have found the guys on here are very honest and know the stuff and have tried mulitple things. I too have been fighting with 3M, so I am very excited to try Chem Guys products.

These new hexalogic pads are great ,it takes a while to get used to them but when you do you'll love them.
Look at what you started Shine ...

I think it's awesome to speak passionately about products you love. It helps guys like me and anyone else wanting to get good stuff. Our shop uses 3m and if not for guys like you I'd know no better and go get the stuff for my own car instead of weighing ALL my options. For instance, years ago I bought some stuff in regards...Cabinet full of perfect it compound, polish, and ultra fina, plus the pads. the ultra fina is pretty good stuff though.

edit: another interesting point is that in a shop atmosphere I don't have time to compound and then wash it with dawn to check WHAT IT REALLY looks like. It's all gonna look good with the afro sheen in compounds/polishes. Although I haven't seen stuff I buffed come back it's harder to gauge how well it REALLY works in a shop atmosphere when the car is not parked in your garage day in day out.

i still have bottles of perfectit in my cabinet. after spending hours trying to use it i shoved it to the back of the shelf and went back to chemical guys. i only bought the 3m because it was local and i was out. the only other polish i tried was presta because barry used it and liked it. so i gave it a try . it's good stuff but not as good as the vseries .

I've been using Meguiar's with great results, it takes some experience to know how to buff a car and which compound/steps to use.

I would suggest a mini buffer such as this one, great for buffing small areas that you can't get with a regular buffer

That's a good mini buffer for sure but I would never put that HF wool pad on anything. Be sure to toss it and get a pad set for it.
