I mostly use the white for when there are minor swirls or feather scratches. The orange is fairly aggressive and I only use that if the surface has some moderate or heavier damage. For paint that's in pretty good shape to start it is too aggressive IMO. Yellow I've never taken out as I've not encountered paint bad enough need that much cutting for my uses. For final polish I usually use the black pads. Or the blue. That's my experience with the LC pad uses on a DA polisher.

I think you are right. I found out the hard way. The orange seems like it is more for oxidation. I have the black pad and will try it with that next time out.

i used it at a Mercedes dealer back in the 70's. there really were no jobbers so it was imported by the dealer. problem was i could not read the labels . great paint once i got the tech in english . it was expensive back then .

If you like Glasurat then,YES, you get a free pass because You know WHAT the good Quality stuff sprays like..... and SPI sprays and buffs just like it.....
switch your painters clear and see if he notices... only difference is SPI costs 125.00 a (sprayable) gallon and glasurat about 5 times that...I don't even know how much a gallon of glasurat costs any more its been so long since I've used it, But Glasurat WAS my brand until I found SPI....Us body and paint men are loyal to our brands if nothing else...

Yesterday I was polishing a black car I painted, using Chem guys V36 with the white hex o logic pad and it looked so good I almost didn't polish it with the black pad and the V-38.I really thought that I shouldn't touch it, all I could do is screw it up,it really looked that good....coming back from lunch I decided to go ahead and polish it up ,Oh boy I cant believe how much that polish does for the depth....I'm not easily impressed but DAM these Chem guys have some of the most awesome stuff I've ever used....I've NEVER been impressed by ANY compounds or polishes and never gave the pads much thought either but the hexo logic pads are just amazing ...I used one of my Presta pads to start with and was having trouble and thought ,this is going to be a long day, so I swaped it out for the hex pad and what a difference...the pads make all the difference in the world...Doing black cars is a whole nuther world it really shows you whats what

yep. red is the same way. one wouldn't think that red would show everything but it does, but obviously not as much as black does.

The chem guys compounds and pads are just like SPI products, people think you are blowing smoke about how great they are, until they try them, then they can't believe how well it really works.
