    Menzerna PO106FA with Flex 3401 VRG and L.Country 5.5 white polishing pad removes low swirls and low holograms of a new paint black?????? (((( New Car with 4 monts, cames with low swirls, the workshop polished the car , dont remove the swirls, just created low holograms.))))

    1. It’s very light marring on the paint and I didn’t need anything too aggressive.

    2. It depends…everyone has their own style and technique. If you are getting the results you desire. I usually will slow down the passes with heavier marring or with more aggressive polishes.

    ok, 1. you’re using a white pad? how come?

    2., i use much slower movement when using my FLEX. is it better to move it a little more quickly or does it matter?

  6. blkyukon says:

    Of course it would, but the purpose of this video is to show the cutting abilities between the 2 machines using the same polish and pad.

    Thanks and you are right…in the info section of this video there is a link to my review of the Flex that covers that.

    and oh yea….using a LC light cutting pad on the Porter Cable would speed things up a bit as well.

    Let’s keep it real here.

  9. hometechnc says:

    Well done, but the Flex costs $300 and the Porter Cable HD costs half as much at $150.
    So the novice who will do their own car can spend a little extra time and save $150, whereas the Pro can spend more and save time…right?
