I just did my first cut and buff job yesterday. I wet sanded a motorcycle fender that was not in the best shape (paint) at all. It was more of an experiment but came out great. I wet sanded to 2000 grit and used Meguires M105 and then followed with M205. A Meguires rep reccomended the product for this. Where the paint was not too scratched, it looked like I just shot clear on it--it was that nice. Now, for the question: I had a no name Amazon set of pads consisting of a wool pad, a flat foam pad and a wavy foam one. I only used the flat foam (a different one for each product and wiped down/buffed with a micro fiber cloth. I was happy with the results but am wondering if I could/should of use the others in addition. I know for the best results I need to use better pads but for this practice, I had these on hand. Also, there very well be better product than Meguires but it was readily available for me. I'll try to add a pic of the pads. Thoughts??https://photos.app.goo.gl/ptJFnQMSZuqEksLP6

P.S. I think you will have to cut and paste the pic link for it to work--I don't think you can click on it--I need to find out how to post pics here.

Meguiar's M-100 blows the M-105 away and has no fillers in it.

I use Twisted Wool pads for first go around with the M-100.
Then Lake Country CCS white pad and Chemical Guys V36.
Finish polish with Menzerna Super Finish Plus 3800 and Lake Country CCS black pad.
