Meguiar's Ultimate Compound - $21.99 @ Supercheap Auto

250

Seems a reasonable price for a fantastic product! Slightly cheaper elsewhere, but usually involves paying delivery.

I recently came across this product and used it to restore white paint on my car - came up brand new with a random orbital polisher and foam pad.

Finished off with hand applying the Ulimate Wax.

I'd recommend this product to anyone who needs to restore their paint - this product will do it, but not damage paint during the process. Can't speak highly enough of it.

It can also restore faded/yellowed headlights too. I also use Ulimate Wax on the headlights to give UV protection to prolong them going yellowing again.

        thanks.

    Same price at Repco at the moment if you have a store closer than super cheap

    How does this compare to T-cut, in your opinion?

    How far does 1 bottle go? Do a full car no worries?

      Assuming you are cutting with a machine and not by hand - yes, you should be able to get at least 5 cars out of 1 bottle.

        Great, thank you! And if by hand?

    Anyone recommend a random Orbital polisher?

    •  

      I bought one of the 150mm single handed Rockwell ones recently for about $30.

      Goes great! Easy to use and not too powerful. Works well on freshly painted and sanded panels.

    Bit of a noob here - would this be ideal if used by hand to remove swirls and fine scratches from a white car? Paint is otherwise in good condition.

      Have tried it and get the job done easily on fine scratches.

    would this be better than ScratchX 2.0 to remove clear coat scratches around the door handle on a dark metallic colour?

    bought a used 4wd in good mechanical condition but has a fair bit of scratches and looking to get rid of them, majority are just light-medium depth clear coat scratches

      In my opinion scratch X is more a filler rather than a polisher. It will only remove the slightest of scratches. Never used the MUC yet, but expecting it to cut for, thus removing the scratches.

      •  

        alright, i'll give that a go, thanks

    •  

      This one is harsher than Scratch X 2.0. For best results, use this one first, then a polish. For deeper scratches, wet sanding may be required first.

    I would start with scratchx. I believe this is more aggressive.

      i have a few deeper ones so wouldn't ultimate Compound be better to deal with both types at once?

  •  

    I use this ultimate compound first for scratches. Then if it doesn't have the effect I want, I move on to scratchx. All done by hand but obviously would be quicker with a machine

    I also use Ulimate Wax on the headlights to give UV protection to prolong them going yellowing again.

    You'd have to keep reapplying every few months. A couple of coats of 2k clear would be longer lasting solution

    •  

      I agree re the clear coat, but I've heard mixed reviews of it - some say it streaks on application, others say it affects the light beam. So I'd rather just take a few minutes to wipe some wax over them every few months.

      •  

        yeah, like any paint, it would need to be polished after application. i wonder if they did that..? having a good even application makes it easier to begin with.
