Product Description

Meguiar's Professional DA Backing Plate - 6":

The Meguiar's DA Professional Backing Plate 6" works with the majority of dual action buffers like the Porter Cable 7424 XP. It simply screws in and you are all set to use any pads of your choice. We recommend using any 6.25" or 6.5" pads with it for optimal results. Meguiar's highly recommends this specific backing plate because of the short hook and loop it utilizes. This helps the pads sit tighter and reduce the amount of heat on the surface for safer buffing. This also does a great job of preserving the pad so it doesn't wear down too fast.

Meguiar's Professional DA Backing Plate - 3" with Adapter Kit:

eguiar's Backing Plate and Adapter Kit gives you all the tools you need to use the 3" backing plate as a sander or backing plate with almost any sand or buffer. It has a hook and loop backing plate that works with Meguiar's Pads, Lake Country Mfg Pads, etc that are 3" - 4" in size. The smaller backing plate size helps you work in tighter spaces more comfortably. Use this backing plate and pad to work on spoilers, under spoilers, side mirrors, under mirrors, bumpers, door jambs, around lights and other tough to access areas. Just slap the pads on the backing plate and the hook and loop backing plate will tightly grip the pad. When you are done pull along the edge of the pad carefully and it will release quick and easy.

This backing plate can also be used with certain sanding discs for those doing serious paint correction. The adapter kit comes with a variety of threadings so you can use it with various buffers and sanders. It obviously works great with with the Porter Cable 7424XP Random Orbital Buffer and most other buffers in the detailing industry. It's also designed to work with other tools found more commonly in a body shop.

Professional Detailer Reviews

Meguiar's strongly recommends that you use their backing plates with this system. The hook and loop backing is different and it allows easier pad removal, and it also helps keep the pads cooler. For the 6" pads you will want to get the S6BP backing plate. For the 5" pads you will want to get the W67DA backing plate. For the 3" pads you'll need to get the S3BP backing plate. I was using non-Meguiar's backing plates at first and there is definitely a difference.

Overall, I'd say this system has exceeded my expectations. It's also very apparent to me that Meguiar's spent a lot of time developing the products. While I expected the polishes and pads to work well, as it's what I've come to expect from Meguiars, it was actually the little things about this system that showed how much thought went into developing these products.

- Product Review: Meguiar's DA Microfiber Polishing System by Chad Raskovich

This new microfiber system will definitely find its way into most or all detailing shops, and, more importantly, into the hands of DIY enthusiasts' with no rotary experience. It definitely helps to bridge the gap even more between DA polishing and the more aggressive, potentially dangerous, rotary polishing process.

I believe the ease of use is what will set it apart from any other competition and make it a favorite to many that have been waiting for some time now.

- Product Review: Meguiar's DA Microfiber Pads and Polishes by Ivan Rajic

I started using this new system immediately upon arrival, and for the past 3 months I have used the compounding system exclusively (with the exception of some 4" spot pad compounding on the rotary), regardless of paint type, level of defects, hardness, etc. I have used it on single stage paint, clear coat systems, incredibly hard paint (Lamborghini), very soft paint, and I have even used it to clear up sanding marks!

While Meguiar's may not have designed it for really heavy defects, it sure is capable of fixing them. Is this a game-changing technology? In my professional opinion it certainly is. Is it going to be the perfect solution for every detailer and every paint type? No it isn't...but then again, show me ANY product that is perfect for every situation. There are always limitations.

One important note that I should make on this new DA system is that it was also designed to achieve rotary-like correction capability (or better) on a dual-action polisher. A rotary polisher requires a very high level of skill and experience to do correctly without the safety issues of burning edges and creating swirls and holograms.

Meguiar's has developed game-changing technology here; particularly on the compounding side of the equation. Heavy defect removal, ease of use, and with the relative safety of using a dual action polisher is a winner in my book!

I now have all Meguiar's backing plates. All their bp's are quality made and work well. I use this one for my Nanoskin Autoscrub Pad. But will also use it if I ever use the 6" meg's pads.
