    What machine/speed are you using? Pics below of S3XXL with a LC yellow pad... That combo does wonders for me just about every time. I have some Rupes wool pads but they're more hassle than they're worth. They are much more aggressive though. I don't get much more aggressive than that on cars. The black VY had never been polished or garaged.

      What is the best stuff to get makeup of leather in a car. Taken the nopics one week to mark the centre console already on her new car. Makeup wipe seems to have gotten rid of most of it.

          and, much to the surprise of many, this;

          to get really badly etched water marks out of the bonnet of my car. I also used the yellow Lake Country pad. Needed heaps of pressure on the machine at full speed. Tried several polishes and the Carpro was best.

            Big thumbs up for the "Big Green Sucker" one pass , no streaking.

                Agreed hydrate is awesome. Wet MF towel and away you go. A little bit goes a long way too.

                I use these exclusively for drying now. Way safer than the "drying towels" on the market. Easier to use and ring out. I'd never go back to a drying towel now.

                Have some beadmaker there to use also. Will give it a go next wash.

                  You're not wrong! An entire bottle lasted me 18 months, granted I don't wash as often as I'd like with little kids but you really use eff all. By contrast, apparently beadmaker calls for a lot of product to get the desired result. Supposedly anyway.

                  It's also a Rag Co. towel but I can't remember what they call it. I prefer the lighter GSM towels in general but that's just me. This particular towel looks (and feels) like a shitty rag but it does an awesome job.

                            To my shock it cuts just as if not better than the 3m/fc400 stuff! Works a lot like the fc400, but leaves massive amounts of dust.

                              try this stuff https://www.cartecworld.com/en/produ...und-4800-paste

                              I got 1200 scratches out of fresh clear with it. (shop ran out of 1500/2000 and car had to go). don't use wool pad with it itll be way too aggressive. quick menzerna medium cut then a swirl remover will get it looking good. I haven't used their swirl remover yet and wont until I finish off my bottle of 3m machine polish.

                                Got another bottle of 3m perfect it cutting compound. Wanted to try new products! Bought 4 new compounds in the last month as I thought there was better out there but nope I'll stick with the 3m perfect it system me thinks.
