Sonus SFX-2 or Megs ?

On completion of buying my PC, It should be coming with a bottle of Sonus SF-2 now is this similar to megs #83,

Due to me buying the PC not sure if i can stretch to buying both meg #80 and #83. Especially if the sf-2 is pritty much the same can some one clear this up for me.

I think SFX1 is more similar to #83. SFX2 is probably the equivilant of Speed Glaze.

I used the old SFX2, in the 16oz bottle, and wasn't too impressed with it to be honest. But it was my first use with a PC so maybe i expected too much from it.

Ok so would you just go ahead and buy megs stuff and leave the bottle of SF2 alone?

Also would you reccomend just trying the speed glaze to start with the first time on using the PC?

The new SFX stuff is only 8oz, whereas the #83 is a 32oz bottle, so will last much longer.

PC is a very safe tool to use, so what you buy depends on what you want to do. I believe #83 is 6/10 on the abrasive scale and think speed glaze is 4/10.

Solaar,

Thanks for your advice, my situation is that i have a nearly a three year old car in MET Black i have owned it 6 months but the previous owner must have put it through a car wash every day so it is swirl city.

So would you recommend getting both the #83 and #80? i have read about SSR and it been better / easier to use than #83

Problem with a black car is that the paint can haze if you use something quite abrasive with a cutting pad, I've done this before on my black car.

I tend to go over the area with a polishing pad & #83 once I've used number #83 and a cutting pad.

SSR is meant to be very good. I've got SSR 2.5 but haven't used it yet.

SSR 2.5 & SSR1 is a common combo and is a bit cheaper than getting 80 & 83

Cheers Solaar!

So you rekon use #83 on a cutting pad then #83 on polsihing pad then top off with speed glaze then addtional wax? This should get some swirls out and get back a rich glossy finish?

You could probably skip the speed glaze if you used #83 on a polishing pad, but if you were going to get both I'd use #83 on a cutting pad and then speed glaze on a polishing pad.

Then just top it off with a good wax or sealant.
