Meguiarâs auto compound for heavy defect removal
Meguiarâs Mirror Glaze M04 Heavy Cut Cleaner is the perfect solution for removing heavy swirls, scratches, severe oxidation, alkaline and acid rain etchings, and more! This professional grade cleaner works with diminishing abrasive technology to cut quickly and then reduce to a polishing rouge to minimize swirling. Buffered abrasive action also lubricates the finish to further prevent scouring or scratching like a traditional compound. Itâs ideal for older lacquer and enamel glossy paints and is formulated specifically to be used by rotary buffer. Meguiarâs Heavy Cut Cleaner is a body shop safe formula and is an excellent first step to remove heavy defects and then follow with a less aggressive product like Meguiarâs Mirror Glaze M09 Swirl Remover 2.0 to further refine the paint. After removing all defects be sure to protect the paint with a good wax or sealant like Meguiarâs Mirror Glaze M26 Hi Tech Yellow Wax or Meguiarâs Mirror Glaze M21 Synthetic Sealant 2.0.
How to apply Meguiarâs Heavy Cut Cleaner
Shake product well before use.
Always work on a clean, cool surface and in the shade.
Be sure you are familiar with proper use of a rotary buffer.
Apply to one section at a time, using a Meguiarâs 8â Soft Buff Rotary Wool Cutting Pad â WRWC8 or Meguiarâs 7â Soft Buff Rotary Heavy Cutting Wool Pad â WRWHC7.
Work product into a section with several overlapping passes until nearly dry.
Wipe off excess before product fully dries with a premium microfiber towel like Meguiarâs Supreme Shine Microfiber Towels â X2020.
For more stubborn defects repeat until serious defects are removed.
Follow with a less aggressive cleaner like Meguiarâs Mirror Glaze M09 Swirl Remover 2.0 to remove the remaining light swirls and further refine the paint. Typically, you want to use a less aggressive pad like Meguiarâs 7â Soft Buff Rotary Foam Polishing Pad â WRFP7 to remove defects while running less of a risk of further inducing swirls.
For darker colored cars follow with an optional Meguiarâs Mirror Glaze M07 Show Car Glaze for more of that deep âwet lookâ.
Finalize with a quality wax or sealant with something like Meguiarâs Mirror Glaze M26 Hi Tech Yellow Wax or Meguiarâs Mirror Glaze M21 Synthetic Sealant 2.0 for tough, long-lasting protection.
Keep off non-painted rubber and vinyl surfaces to avoid getting a residue thatâs difficult to remove.
