They don't do any damage if used properly.

I drilled a hole in the handle. Worked like a charm.

Ok. I'm standing here at Auto Zone and I got the product I used. It doesn't say 1500 cut but just says removes 1500 grade scratches.

It's 3M and just says rubbing compound.

So it's not as bad right? :(

Don't feel do bad, I've spent alot on mods to have done for the fest and I get the car back just in time to leave without even getting to wash her. No telling what it will look like when I get there.

It's NOT what you should be using for what you were trying to accomplish! You can use a turkey carving knife to cut butter and it will cut the hell out of some butter but wouldn't a butter knife be a lot better and much more practical?

No, it's not as bad but it is not meant for what you wanted to do. That compound has to be polished out after you use it.

Ok, I'm gonna take it, but does the description I just read of the product mean the damage isn't as bad. It doesn't give a grit grade but does say safe for clearcoat.

Hopefully It's not too bad to be done by a detailer. It's just hard to find someone who does good work. No way to really know with these local guys.

Here's the deal. You follow one grit of sandpaper with a lesser grit, until you work your way down to the compounds that will be buffing the finish out. The stuff you bought is equivalent to 2000 grit paper, which is quite a workout for the PC. Like I said before, I use the Flex to clean up the damage you have and that is still some work. A rotary would be a lot faster and better suited. The only problem is you need to find someone skilled with a rotary.


... unless you want to spend a week in Kentucky...

That could be arranged.

But I just polished a little square and the swirls are gone. I used the black two stage turtle wax polish I normally used. I'm sure it still needs to be fixed but it could look better in the mean time.

Oh curse my jumpiness.

You're a good man. I'll put a star on your post now.

Now we have to work on PQ. He's his own worst enemy today! Have you done the flash test on that spot you just polished PQ?
