Might give it a try with orange pads sometime but certainly didn't get the gloss that euge07 got, not a patch on Megs 205.

Our Rapid Renovator is a single stage, no filler compound. Obviously it will have its limits as to what it can achieve, but it was designed as a single stage to leave a surface that does not require any further finishing after use, just protecting.

I did the other half's MINI with Menz 2400, and thought it looked pretty good in terms of depth of shine and swirl removal. But after refining with ''4000'' (they've changed the names yet again recently) i could see an improvement in colour intensity and gloss.

I wouldn;t trust myself with FG400, its a heavy cut compound, which i wouldn;t imagine is going to achieve good clarity and depth. I suppose it depends how bad the paint is you are staring with, and then the decision whether you want 99% defect removal with compromised clarity, or leave a few deeper defects for good gloss/depth.

Any single stage polish will be a compromise

Thank you all for the replies.

It looks like a few people are getting mixed up between FG400 and Heavy Cut 400.

Menzerna describe the Heavy Cut 400 as a 1 step polish which compunds and finishes really well - http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/car-po...prod_1096.html

I am going to go with this. Was also thinking that I can do a 2nd quick stage of a a finishing polish if required.

I thought heavy cut 400 was FG400, which can REALLY remove clear coat.

Your right, CYC website shows both heavy cut 400 and FG400 as 2 products.

Yes the cut level is high at 8/10 but according to Menz it also finishes well.

For example, I have just finished a bottle of Menz Intensive Polish which was rated at 7/10 cut. This used to be there medium cut polish which everyone used to rave about.

HC400 has a slightly heavier cut but everyone seems to be saying how strong it is and best avoided! Its only slightly stronger but finishes way better.
