Lindstrom then goes at the panel with 2,000-grit paper and a soft foam Meguiar’s pad. Lindstrom really likes the properties of the Meguiar’s paper. Its uniform grit doesn’t load up quickly, which means it lasts as well as performs. Lindstrom also feels that cheap paper doesn’t pay off in the long run. He had used this Nikken silicon-carbide paper years ago, but it became impossible to find. He was very happy when it turned up under the Meguiar’s label.
