Oh yeah you have to get them. Many of us "old timers" cut out teeth on single stage celly with a 14"lambswool head on a single speed ( stupidly fast) rotates that make the silverlines feel lightweight. You just keep going with g3 until you get to a level that your happy with ( experience pksys a part after a while) then refine it down. If it stsrts trying out flick some water at it and keep going.
Heads look at the gmops or a hex logic yellow through orange

Chuck it in a bucket of water. Bang it on and soon it up on high revs first then keep the pad AND panel misted with clean water. It will last longer and won't fly into a million bits

Hello everyone,
I try to understand the difference between Farecla compounds and types, and I stuck on a silly problem for those who know the answer
How do I identify different types of paints on a car: medium solids paint or high solids paint?
By now, I found out thanks to Google that medium solids has less colour pigment in the paint than high solids, and it is sprayed different
But as a good detailer I want to be, I have to recognize which type of paint the car has, in order to use the most suitable compound

As a n00b, questions like this on here always puzzle me, if the paintwork is topped by a clear coat, why should the make up of the paint below the clear coat make any difference? Genuine question, not directed at you Andre personally as I see this sort of Q a lot and always wonder.
Thanks for any enlightenment

I had that 'why' as well, but give up after Google didn't return me a satisfy answer.
After a look on Farecla's items on their website,on some compound descriptions they recommend to be used on HS paints or MS paints.
I searched what HS and MS paints mean and I end up with that silly question
