Menzerna

Hey Guys

Had a crack with power finish product this week - while it certainly improved the admitedly minor swirl marks there are still marks there I am looking to remove.

Anyone use the powergloss product ?

My car is AW...

M105 and D300(Meguiars) will remove what 203(Power finish) cannot, powergloss is the only Menz product I am not fond of.

Of course not - you're known for full correction and true perfectionist work.

Powergloss is somewhere in-between that excels at being used as a one-step product. It doesn't cut like the big-boys, and it doesn't finish down like 3M Ultrafine or Menzerna 106fa, but it does cut decently enough and finish down nice enough that many prefer it as a good single-step product to add improvement during times they don't want to spend a lot of time on a car or a client doesn't have a full correction budget in mind.

That being said... I don't really use it either and I'm not a big fan of it, but there are quite a few people that are. I second Bob's suggestion of 105/D300, but keep in mind you'll want a final polish to use afterwards to maximize clarity.

If you have a LC yellow pad, might try that with the power finish before buying some M105.

Though some ultimate compound would be my choice.
