Hey Angelo, do you know why when I placed my order it told me the 3'' backing plate was no longer for sale? It was there last night and then today it's gone. Just out of stock?

Iron X - Good Stuff. I want to try Metal Rescue & see if it does the same thing.

Just got my first shipment in. Was very impressed with the packaging. Everything was wrapped in paper and the box filled with packing peanuts. Other vendors should take note.

One weird thing is the Optimum Hyper Compound didn't come with a sprayer. Don't really know why, its pictured with one. The polish came with one.

I can't wait to hear your review of the microfiber pads and Optimum spray polishes, what were you using before for polishing?

I've been using Blackfire src with foam pads on other cars before this. But my car hasn't been polished in over a year. Needs some tlc for sure
