3M Perfect-It III system

Afternoon all,

Was just browsing Clean Your Car and came across the 3M polishing system. Any thoughts on it?

I've been using Hexlogic pads and SSR... and to be frank I've been completely underwhelmed by it's performance and correction levels and also the complexity and number of polish and pad combinations I had to go through.

The 3M system seems nice and simple. Any thoughts on it's performance, ease of use, etc with a DA.

Cheers,

Jamie.

Having just started using the 3M system I have to say it is awesome. A very clear and simple system of agressiveness that dare I say is fool-proof. Also got it from CYC

Have a look at this thread where I was having a little play around with it:

Many thanks guys, having a peruse through that link now. I think I'll slowly be replacing my various compounds and pads as they run out.

Cheers, J.

Ive never tried it till recently, but it works great for me, wish Id done it earlier, just too many options with other makes, although some may prefer different makes. You can use them as colour coded, but then you can mix it up a bit to get the desired results. You could use the compounding compound with the polishing pad for eg.
