IPA won't always remove all filling oils, its not a hugely strong solvent, all I can think is happening is the very fine abrasives in LP are lifting the oils out of the swirls and the solvent in LP is then taking it away when buffed off?

Do a 50/50 on the panel and see what happens.

HD Cleanse is full of fillers and oils, just ask Clark.

As I said I'd put money on you not working Lime Prime to break down the fine abrasives.

Does the 85rd contains fillers and LP is removing them?

LP could be a stronger cleaner than HD-cleanse?

any polish that contains oils/wax as a lube (megs/menz etc) have some degree of filling due to the oils in them. go check the polish drop back thread thats going on atm.

only way to make sure your working the finish properly is to wipe each area with an IPA wipe afterwwards to remove them all.

cheers

thanks again guys.

I tried again on my seat pod today (black plastic) and had the same results

I'm hoping its what Gary (RR) says i.e. not breaking it down enough. But i am using / applying it like i would HD-C maybe this is wrong....on certain surfaces..? I wonder if Swissvax cleaner fluid is the same?

Anyway...

This is my seat pod after a wash and clay:




Using a blue spot pad and 85RD i polished untill near dam it perfection. Not got a pic of this.


DODO LP applied in straight lines using a foam pad this time as suggested:



buffed off: This does look like circular swirls but they do go in lines, the brinkman pics it up like circles :s


IPA wipe down after DODO LP


Polished again with 85RD


IPA after 85RD


HD-C applied with foam pad side to side:


buffed off:


IPA after HD-C


It is a strange one. When i do my metal tank i will apply LP via a blue spot pad as Gary suggests and break it down. I will do half by hand aswell.

I think i'll stop using it until we get some clear answers as the test seems to be very conclusive!
