Very impressive improvement.

Not played with denim pads so can you go straight to a polish like 205 or does it need an intermediate stage?

I'll be placing a large order at the end of the month and m101 has been added to the shopping list.

Whoever did it did nothing about the heavy dust and other contamination in the paint.

So, they resprayed (or gave it to their 5 year old kid to do) and just left it without bothering about all the crap in the paint.

What I did was use a Scholl white spider pad and S20 to just tidy up the panel after using the carpro pad.

I'll take you up on that advice as I will be doing more orange peel levelling in future. I've read a few people mention FG400, but you prefer m101 over this?
Can these pads be use with a Rupes 15 machine and a flex 3401

I was doing some research on various forums like autopia and autogeek and apparently they do work to an extent on a DA like the Rupes. You'd get better results on the 3401 from what I read these pads are ideal for the rotary due to the heat generated which helps the uneven clearcoat surface level easier. They're pretty cheap the 2000 grit denim pads and 3000 velvet pads are around £5 each.

I used a 115mm hard plastic backing plate which I read help level the clearcoat better as opposed to a soft backing plate like the 3M ones.
