      G3 Pro Scratch Remover on Xylo's ORVM

      Here is the Quick review(Test) of G3 Pro Scratch Remover which I did on my Xylo's ORVM, I wanted to test it before using it on my bike.

      This is how the ORVM was with scratch's and dirts. I thought it will go off in a shampoo wash but it didn't.

      I used G3 Pro SR with White G3 Waffle applicator pad.

      1. Cleaned the ORVM with shampoo and dried it.
      2. Dampen the pad with water apply some G3 SR on the pad
      3. Worked on the mirror with up - down, left - right motion.

      and this is the how it looks during the G3 pro SR application.

      Thanks for the review Raxx.

      Couple of questions -

      How easy / difficult was it to apply the product and to remove it?
      I presume the applicator is for use with hand? More details of this & pics too please.
      Did you protect the surface afterward with a sealant / wax?

      Applying the product is pretty easy.. I felt little difficult (sticky) to remove it I maybe wrong. This my first ever try on a polish never used it before. Maybe I had applied too much of polish.

      No I didn't. I just did a test spot. Though I have a G3 pro Super resin wax. I did the G3 pro SR on my bike yet to apply the Wax.

      Seems like really good product. Hand application itself looks great!

      Geared primarily for hand usage with their specific applicators...which means will not be optimal for machine usage

      Why because this is a diminishing abrasive polish which is geared for hand which means the abrasives would have been engineered to break down much faster into smaller sizes and give better results with less effort... Now the same thing by machine means the abrasives will break down into smaller sizes even before it gets to level the scratches

      which means if by hand you need say five mins (2 mins in which the abrasives remain same in size and another min to break down further and then another two mins at same small size) to remove a scratch by hand before it stats drying up and you can longer work it with the applicator, by machine because of higher speed and heat generated probably within a min or two the polish will dry up... That's my understanding of how it will work and why it gives good results by hand

      You can always send the manufacturer a mail and see what they say
