Scholl S2

Bought scholl s2 and s40 some time back and never really used them tbh, my current car does not really need massive correction but could i still use the S2 to start with on a medium pad then finish with the S40 on a finishing pad....? would that be too much of a jump across the finishes...?

Sorry for the late reply but if your not removing heavy defects from your paint then S2 is a bit to aggressive to use so why not just use S20 it's been proven as a great 1 step polish and finishes very nice.

You haven't said what car and colour you have mate

You said you've had S2 for a while - if it's the older S2 rubbing compound then forget it - it is used for removing 1200 grit sandpaper marks and Scholl advise not to use on scratch resistant paint systems. If it's the newer S2 orange it will have similar cut and gloss to S3 XXL Gold so it's pretty aggressive. Like chongo said, you'll need to advise which car it is and S20 is a sound bet.

You should be fine with a medium pad and S2 orange if your paint is hard like most VW paint is. Worst case scenario you can use the S40 on the medium pad rather than the finishing pad after. Which 'medium' pad are you referring to?

Never used the hex pads. If the pad is definitely a medium cutting pad then I think it will be fine. If it was a heavy cutting pad then it might be different.

Don't always think it's going to be hard just because it's Vag paint and to be honest mate using S2 which is an aggressive compound regardless of which pad you are going to use, it will remove more clear coat than if you where to use a less aggressive compound or a polish that allows you to use a medium polishing pad. The game is to improve your paint but not to go all aggressive when there is no need to.

According to Scholl, the cut and gloss is the same between S2 Orange and S3 XXL Gold.

http://www.schollconcepts.com/en/sho...bbing-compound

"S2 Orange can generally be applied with all SCHOLL Polishing Pads. For best results, we recommend the use of the universal Premium Pad orange or the innovative SpiderPad navy-blue. Haze or light holograms on dark paints can be eliminated by using our S30+ Premium Swirl Remover in combination with the universal Premium Pad orange..."

The old S2 was more abrasive and could remove 1200 grit defects whereas the newer S2 Orange version seems to be identical to S3 XXL Gold which is confusing but whatever.

It's alright saying according but actually using it is a different matter, so many things need to be taken into consideration when using a aggressive compound the op was asking how best and what to use for light swirls, yes he has S2 but it's best to advise on a least aggressive approach first before going in with a compound that is capable of removing sanding marks of 1200-1500
