The smaller polishing surface means you’re only buffing the blemish, not the surrounding paint. Scratches and blemishes often occur in particular areas on a vehicle. Very rarely is your whole vehicle covered with blemishes. If the majority of your vehicle looks relatively new, then there is no need to compound the whole panel. Actually you might create swirls if you use an overly abrasive pad on perfectly fine paint. Using Spot Buffs, you are only addressing the problem, not creating additional ones.
Use this Yellow Foam Spot Buff pad to apply compounds or heavy buffing polishes to remove oxidation, environmental fall-out damage, deep swirls, and medium duty scratches. The yellow foam is the most aggressive and should only be used on finishes that have medium to severe correctable blemishes. Always follow up with the green foam pad and a clear coat safe premium polish like our Foam Pad Polish/Glaze or the Blue Diamond Polish to restore the paint to a slick, smooth, glamorous finish.
This Lake Country Yellow Pad is the most aggressive Lake Country Foam 4 Inch CCS Pad.
What Products To Use?
To get the maximum use out of your Lake Country Yellow Pad, use in conjunction with Detail King compounds such as, Diamond Cut, Vibra Cut II, Vibra Cut Lite, or Buff 'N Bling. Remember, anytime you compound you must follow up with glazing or polishing. After you compound with this pad, you would glaze with the Lake Country Green Pad, using the Foam Pad Glaze II or a similar product to receive that glamorous shin.
