CARPRO Denim Orange Peel Removal Pad (V2) - 5 1/2"
With our CARPRO USA Velvet and Denim Orange Peel Removal pads you can now remove or substantially reduce orange peel in the top layer without sanding. While removing orange peel and deep defects you are also polishing the paint rather than leaving sanding marks which reduces the steps needed afterwards.
New to Version 2:
- Multiple diameter pads available.
- Foam interlayer changed from 3/8" to 3/16".
- Redesigned foam interlayer for more effective orange peel removal.
- Redesigned without holes for longer durability.
