Compound, Level 9, Compound Power Cleaner by Meguiars, M8401, Gallon

Paint Compound rates at 9 on Meguiars' aggresion scale of 0-10.  Compounds come in two flavors ... lighter and heavier ... but either is the most aggresive cleaner appropriate for automotive paint under the right conditions.  Dr. Detail recommends this level of cleaner for paints that have  1200 to 1500 grit color sanding marks.  This materials should be used with a wool pad and followed with the matched Cleaner Glaze, M082, for a flawless finish using a foam pad.  For fresh paint be sure to wait 45 to 60 days before waxing.  Always check with your paint supplier for the besy minimum time to let it dry out before applying the protective coat.  Glazes are always OK.

The Doctor recommends using this product when there is very little gloss left to your finish.
