    Default Zero swirl polishing pad pic heavy

    I have been using these pads for quite a while now so decided to write a review.
    Bought from Machine Mart for 11.98 for two https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/flex...oam-pad-red-x/ they are very easy to use and because you use them at slow speed they are ideal for the beginner, and do exactly like they say and leave no swirl marks.

    Gave the Audi a wash and polish today using this pad and a bit of Auto Glym resin polish ,still not as shiney as the cougar but its getting there

    I knew it wouldn't take you long to start turning this one into a mirror too! I swear, I'm turning up at your house one day with a blue Cougar, a pack of bacon and a winning smile.

    Any time Rich your always welcome.
    Forgot to mention these pads are very fine and soft so can only be used for a final polish and not compounding

    That is looking sweet, those pads seem to be a good buy. The pad I got with my DA are useless, so have been looking at buying some decent one's. May give these a go. Nice work matey.

    My Coug may be gone, but never forgotten.....

    Outstanding work, and thank you for the recommendation - I'll give these a go. Get Tiger pretty if it kills me.
    Buckle up and I'll show you what I mean.

    You're not wrong mate, ours is just the same. It's coming to something when you can clearly see orangepeel on a white car, you'd think on a supposed 'premium' brand that there'd be a high enough standard of production and quality control for this not to happen.
