Essence and LC light cut hybrid pad.

I now the only way to be sure is to spot test but do you think Essence will finish down ok with a LC light cutting pad.

I may have 3 days this weekend to apply CQUK to my van.

The polishing pads are out of stock and will be for a while and don’t want to move away from LC 5” pad system for the flex.

Cheers.

If it helps pal, I've used with a MF Finishing pad and CarPro's Gloss Pad, both of which gave superb results and you should be able to get hold of either pretty quickly I'd have thought.

Essence can be used with a MF cutting pad and still finish great so the LC hybrid pad will be fine bud it's similar to the Carpro gloss pad dense in construction so the polish won't disappear into the pad

Are you looking to correct before you apply C Quartz

Thanks but I'm sticking with the LC system and learning to use them thoroughly if that makes sense.

A chap from the now defuct Megs UK forum back in the day (L200 Steve I think) said 'find something you like and use it a lot'

I have now picked mainly carpro products and LC hybrid pads.

Cheers.

Yes, light swirls no real correction.

Thanks for your input.
