Re: Rubbing Compound Question???

Thanks guys! Mainesails instructions are fantastic. I gather from the SJ34 that the answer to my question is that the Imperial is supposed to be a sort of one step compound and polish. I'm probably not as anal as Mainesail, but I planned on three steps anyway. Good thing I saved the reciept! I'lll inquire about presta at the ship's store.

Another rave for the Presta products--absolutely worth it. Besides working well, they rinse out of the pads easily with water. MaineSail's instructions are, of course, excellent.

I personally don't like the 3M one step compound and polish. I found it more difficult to work and remove. Several detailers in my marina use it and like it, I get better results with the more traditional compound and two steps of polish (all 3M) but it is more time consuming. Mainsail's post explains all the steps pretty well.

I've polished a couple thousand cars and a few boats. Mainesail's thread is good, listen to him.

hill, 3M is one of the finest companies in the world when it comes to answering the telephone. Call the toll-free number on the back label of any bottle, they'll connect you to a product specialist who knows all of their "finishing" products in depth, and they can tell you specifically what grit the product is, and why one or the other is better.

3M makes great stuff, and they're equally great about telling you how to use which ones.

That and Mainesail's thread, which is outstanding.
