The best part of V36 and V38 was how easy they are to work with for the user. The optical grade polishes have a very long work time so you can keep working the polish for perfect correction of the paint surface. Another unique feature is that the polishes had zero dust residue. Unlike other polishes that sling dust powder everywhere as the polish begins to break down, V36 and V38 both have no dusting effects as the polish works into the surface. Zero dust from polishing means you don 't have to do back over the car cleaning up dust residue on the surface from inside the cracks and crevices. You can go straight from polishing to waxing and final wipe down without spending extra time cleaning up the mess from polishing.
How Much Are The Right Polishes & Compounds Worth?
How about $300K? Don't believe us? We worked on a special project in our Smart Detailing University trailing center. A longtime client of ours personally asked us to prepare his brand new vehicle he had just purchased for an event he was planning to attend. The vehicle he purchased was a 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost in beautiful Diamond Black Metallic. The client was very concerned about the car because it was only 3 weeks old with only 500 miles on the clock, but the entire vehicle was covered in light wash marring and holograms caused by an inexperienced detailer using a wool pad at the dealership. After a few words with the client and a couple small test spots on the vehicle, we decided to correct the paint using the V36 Optical Cutting Polish teamed with a Green Hex Logic pad on a FLEX 3403 and a Porter Cable 7424XP. V36 had just enough cut to where we removed all the wash marring and holograms after only one pass, then finished down flawlessly to perfect reflection. After the one-step polishing job, the car was ready to be topped with a premium paste wax. Being able to fully correct a car with one pad and one product makes paint correction so much faster and easier for the operator. On the softer jet black B-pillars, we were able to use the V38 Optical Final Polish with a Black Hex Logic pad to achieve a flawless defect-free reflection that simply looked amazing. The best part of V36 and V38 was how easy they are to work with for the user. The optical grade polishes have a very long work time so you can keep working the polish for perfect correction of the paint surface.

You can go straight from polishing to waxing and final wipe down without spending extra time cleaning up the mess from polishing. V36 and V38 are impressive with both the working ability and the results of the product. The product works perfect for low speed polishing and jeweling of the paint which is very important. V36 and V38 both bring out the flake and depth of the beautiful black diamond metallic Rolls-Royce paint without the heavy effort of conventional polishes. After working with the new Optical Polish line, V36 and V38 will have a perfect spot in your detailing line-up.
