Product Description

The SM Arnold Speedy Surface Prep Pad will remove contamination from your paint with ease, replacing the need for a clay bar! This pad is infused with an advanced rubber polymer technology that easily removes paint over spray, light water marks, tree sap, rail dust, road grime and other extra stubborn surface contaminants from the surface! Just simply spray the NanoSkin Glide onto the contaminated area and glide the Speedy Surface Prep Pad across the surface. This pad can be used via a random orbital or dual action buffer on a low speed (1-2), or by hand using the DI Accessories Hand Strap. You will be amazed at how well the Speedy Surface Prep Pad removes contaminants from the surface, in so little time. The advanced rubber polymers will safely separate the contaminants bonded to the exterior, without marring the surface. You can use this on not only the paint, but the glass, moldings, and plastics as well. Your car will feel smooth and free of contaminants so you can get better results afterward with any polish, glaze, sealant or wax! This special pad is so easy to maintain that even if you drop it on the floor you can simply rinse it off and keep working, unlike traditional clay bars. The 6.25" fine and medium pads will last you around 30-50+ uses, which far surpasses multiple clay bars! If you are looking to get rid of that annoying clay bar and find a simple, safe, and easy way to remove contaminants from your car then the SM Arnold Speedy Surface Prep Pad is exactly what you are looking for!

Please note this unit should not be used with a rotary buffer. The Medium Pads (blue) are best used for heavy build ups and the Fine Pads (yellow) are best for well maintained vehicles.

The Economy Pad utilizes the same rubberized surface for cleaning but it is less durable than the Fine and Medium Pads and it can not be used with a buffer. It's a great low cost option to get started!

Would they buy this item again? Yes
2008 Sprinter Van had not been waxed in 9 years. I had side windows added to the van and the installers did not clean the cut-powdered-metal-flakes when finished. Two weeks later, surface rust that could not be washed off, covered the van. One Surface Prep Pad (medium) with soapy water removed the rust 99%. Waxed the van with Nu-Finish. It has been a week since cleaning and waxing my Sprinter and my upper body, neck, and shoulder blades have almost recovered.
