Drum8888: For people saying it doesn't work, doing this by hand really isn't recommended even though they say you can do it that way. It needs to be used with a dual action polisher to genuinely remove the swirl marks and scratches and it will take a good amount of time since each area will require a number of passes with the DA polisher depending on how bad the paint is. This method will give you great results but be prepared to spend a day or two at it, this isn't just like doing a quick hand polish and wax.
Larry DeBarge: Unless you have only the slightest imperfections they will not be removed buy using ANY product by hand unless you are willing to hand polish and reapply for hours. an orbital polishers spins at 1000's of RPM and will actually allow removal of paint imperfections. how many revolutions are you going to do by hand? The way you remove a scratch in the clearcoat is to abrade away the clear coat until it is smooth, a lot of these products that claim you can remove the scratches by hand contain fillers that will improve the look short term but have actually removed the scratches. Do a little research. The abrasiveness of the this is barely a compound so is extremely safe for even the novice with an orbital polisher although it may take a few attempts.
THE SOOTHSAYER: None of these products really work. I've tried them all and you could still see the scratches no matter what you do.
Mitchell Jenkins: I just spent $154.00 on these products. Can't see any difference. 2nd time trying this company. won't do it third time. ;
Mauro Pavesi: Is it good and advisable to use it on clear colours?
LLawliet182: do i necessarily need to wax my car after using the ultimate compound?
Cheng Liu: Can this be used to target specific scratches or do you have to use it on the whole car every-time? Also aren't you supposed to use a cutting disk (maroon colored) with this? It looked to me like the guy was using a polishing (yellow colored) disk in the video.
Pablo Macias: Wow..meguiars products are the best ive seen..out go buy this compound
JoeysWorld: I use this and it works great initially. Then rain hits and the blemishes and scratches all come back. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
Corey Adkins: Sweden I have used these products for years with nothing but great results. I detail cars for a living and what you see here is a consumer product not a professional product. Be that as it may it still works exactly as they say and show it here. Using a foam cutting, orange pad with a good da, I use the P.C. 7424xp on speed five doing several cross hatching passes using moderate pressure 7-9 lbs. Then I generally switch to a blue polishing pad using almost no pressure to finish the correction stage. It works on soft clear like on most of your American cars and some Hondas and it works on very hard clears also, most anything from Europe, Vettes and vipers have ridiculously hard clear but if this is all you have it will correct it and finish down well. It just takes forever. Are there better products and machines that will knock it down and make it gleam much faster? Hell yes but the avg guy won't touch a rotary and wool pads with a 10 cut compound like m105. The avg person can get great results with tools most of us have or your hand with a one step product like this. Paint correction is an art form and as I said the avg person doesn't have the skills and equipment to get it done. It can take days and many many steps to achieve the flawless finish we all dream about. I fully corrected my black and gunmetal w140 S class Mercedes using the mirror glaze line and it looks wet and flawless and every angle. Glazruit paint is as hard as it gets, 48 hours of work made my 20 year old flagship flawless and it gets me lots of attention and lots of buisness whenever I take it out. If ANYTHING with Barry's name on it doesn't work it's operator error.
Rashad Dorsey: When you use the compound is it necessary to use the ultimate quick wax ?
Darryl Schipper: I applied this product by hand on my painted B pillars as a test on my BLACK 2011 Jetta. I was impressed. Great for light scratches from washing and drying... It was easy to use and the result was awesome! I'd like to see if i get a better result with a random orbital. I love your products...and you sneaky bastards make them smell so good! this smell like cinnamon! and the tire shine..."Endurance"...which is my favorite tire shine of all.... smells like damn candy grape! keep up the quality! I dont mind spending a little more if i get results. I recommend your wax, Endurance tire shine and this ultimate Compound!
ron sanchez: Waxes work good will try the compound ive seen the shine are car shows pretty good
Chris Torelli: This Compound works great when not Heavy- cutting (4)
El Cabrón: Great product if used properly may take more then one or tow applications but the finish is amazing.
LiamHutchinson666: Why do people say it doesn't work? It works perfect... I live in tasmania, Australia and every car I've had the paint is crap and dull due to our extreme UV levels in tas. I've used ultimate compound on all of them and it restores the finish to mint condition. Just recently used it on my red tiburon with dull finish and scratches everywhere. Looks perfect now
South Miami: Useless, does not work and will be returning it tomorrow.
Do not buy this, complete joke and waste of time and money!!
PorscheSweden: This product does not work at all, same with the Scratch remover 2.0X. Meguiars products are a total joke, they never perform the way they promise. The only reason why i bought them was because they had a fancy bottle and were fairly expensive which made me think that they were decent. But no, they make no difference at all.... So if you want to save money and time, do not buy any of these bullcrap products.
Sungodv: Great stuff, Meguiar's. Truly amazing. Thanks!
Anthony sosa: didnt work on my mustang i mean doing it went away but hours later the smal scratches come back
