Menzerna 3500

Hi people

Does anyone on here use menzerna 3800 just wondering if it can be a paint to remove off some paints

Not sure if it is or not or has it changed in recent years

I’ve heard it can finish quite nicely

Thanks
Charlie a

I use both 3500 and 3800 and they do indeed finish down very nicely - almost at the stage you can put your lsp on top, assuming it doesn't mind being on top of something.

I tend to finish with 3500 or 3800, panel wipe with slow degreaser, then apply two coats of Prima Amigo before my wax - may not be necessary, but I think it gives a better shine

It is excellent with a rotary and soft pads.

I used meguires 205 and 3500 before and it was the best I ever seen car paint and I don't think you need the 3800.

It has a long working time so you keep working it for the proper time, not stop out of impatience

As long as it has been worked and broken down properly, then yes, it is relatively easy to remove the residue - if you don't work it all the way, then it can be a bit of a pain to remove.

S40 is a very good finishing polish and has a nice long working time
I use only with a L/C HT crimson finishing pad on medium to soft paints, and on hard paints I tend to use a Rupes yellow polishing pad
