    Update: Micro Polish just arrived :woot:

    E-Shine rocks when it comes to quick delivery (Big-ups' to Chris) [​IMG]

    I'll let you guys know how this stuff works after I try it out this evening [​IMG]

    I tried a 50/50 on the trunk of that black Accord... SWEEEEET!!!!! [​IMG]

    I think it's too subtle to pick up with my camera, but a definite improvement :afro:

    Yeah, I tried with the camera and it wasn't sensitive enough to pick up the difference :picture: sorry gents.

    I assure you though, there was indeed quite a difference :righton:

    I wouldn't put these two polishes in the same category... Ultrafina has more cut than Micro Polish :thinking: As a matter of fact, if I was doing a 2 step on a newer car with very light swirling, I would probably start with the Fina' and then jewell to perfection afterwards with the Micro'

    Update: Just for the heck of it, I decided to go over the trunk of that Accord again with the Micro Polish to see if I could bring out some more gloss... about 45mins of jewelling later guess what???

    It got stepped up another notch [​IMG]

    Update: This is turning into an interesting research project...

    Just for S&G I decided to give the Ultrafina another shot on the Accord to see if I was being unfair by spending so much time with the Micro Polish in the jewelling process.

    It turns out I may have :thinking:

    You see, I used the Micro Polish on top of the original Ultrafina area (for a 50/50) and it showed an improvement. What I did not try initially was re-working the half without the Micro Polish to see if there was anything more that the Ultrafina could give me.. and when I did, it did :thud:

    I think I may be back to square one when it comes to seeing for myself which one of these two polishes is actually better.

    You will be very happy when you do.

    Every car that I've seen it used on seems to have a very unique "shimmer" [​IMG]

    Maybe I'm just going nuts [​IMG]

    To me it is the gloss, then again it depends on your definition of shimmer.

    Probably the same thing... as if there was a perfectly smooth layer of baby oil on the paint... a masterpiece [​IMG]

    Does 85RD fill because i know UF does. My 85RD arrived today along with my CR spotless a few pads and that new menz polish.

    All polishes fill from what I hear.

    so which is better 85rd or the PO87MC?

    the oils (parrafin usually), cause some unintentional filling, just make sure that 85RD, 106FF or 87MF/MC is used once all the defects are completely gone

    Prepsol wipedowns during correction process, before enhancement process with RD etc are essential for guaranteed 100% flawless finish

    Right now that's the million dollar question Matrix...

    So far the answer is "it depends on how hard the clear coat is"

    Don't worry folks... I'm going to find the answer... no matter how long it takes [​IMG]

    i wouldn't say that ALL polishes fill but i would say under the right circumstances some or most do. I havent witnessed m105 fill or some other polishes. And prep sol wipedowns do not always remove all the filling. I hope 85RD fills EXTREMELY little!

    And i hope to find out today! YAY

    If you use 85rd as a jeweling polish vs. a corrective polish then you have nothing to worry about, granted all of the defects are removed prior to the 85rd ...

    Absolutely. Hopefully this new powerfinish will be a good in between for SIP and 85RD!

    What would you recommend before 85RD but after SIP?
