Fontic 11pcs 3″/80mm Compound Drill Buffing Sponge Pads Kit – Useful size for a variety of tasks.

Definitely a must have for any car detailer or any car enthusiast. Very easy to use and easy attach to any corded or cordless drill. Makes detailing headlights and small areas very quick and manageable. Have used these about 9 times thus far as i do car detailing and headlight restoration periodically for family and friends on the side. These pads have not let me down yet.

I got this as an amateur car enthusiast to avoid paying hundreds of dollars for professional equipment. For less than $10, i didn’t expect much from the product. But after using the different mats and the drill bit, it worked surprisingly well. As someone who has never used anything like this before though, i sort of wish it had some reference as to each pad, but i have no regrets with this purchase.

The fontic 11pcs 3’/80mm compound drill buffing sponge pads kit is just what i needed. I purchased this product to finish buffing the edges of acrylic panels used for edge-lit signs. The kit contains several pads of different configurations that will work for wide variety of applications.

Each color has a different softness. No real grading of the colors like 1-4 you just have to feel and compare. The screw on pad doesn’t have a simple lock or latch.

I don’t know how i have done diy jobs without these. They are extremely versatile and i plan on getting more. I used these to restore my car headlights, that were so hazy you couldn’t even see inside, and now they look brand new. I also repainted my car hood and bumper with rattle cans myself and after wet sanding the clear coat for a few hours, i used these with an auto polish and they shine like a pro job. I am a woodworker and will absolutely continue to use these to help wax and polish finished products now that i know about them.

I’m feeling pretty stupid that i didn’t pick up this type of set years ago. I love my dewalt variable speed polisher. But the 6′-8′ buffing pads are an issue in tight fit areas and edges. These 3′ pads compliments those larger pads very well and makes polishing out a new paint job much less stressful. If there is a knock to be had, i wish the backing pad was slightly undersized to minimize the possibility catching the edge as you reach into crevices. But it’s something that i could probably trim down myself.

  • Easy to use buffer & attachments
  • Needs to be in your car care toolbox.
  • Not bad for $11!

What i wanted use to clean headlight housing and small blemishes on vehicles.

This is a good auto detailing set the small 3 inch pads are perfect for tight places where a full size buffer can’t fit the backing plate is sturdy the pads are firm medium and soft a good selection.

I use them on my cars, on my glass top stove, my stainless steel appliances and my granite countertops. If you need something polished, these will do the trick.

Love my experience with these pads. I used the black and orange one didn’t realize when i ordered it actually makes a difference which one to use. I used these pads to finish my headlight restoring project. One side is pretty scratched up and the orange one really came in handy to buff it out more. I ordered a package of sandpaper 3000 -2500- 1500 bit to get the job done. You can youtube and see how some people have done it that way. I bought a retail rainx package restoration kit and they didn’t seem to do the trick. Last step compound cream in one of those packages, will need that to use these buffing pads, or order the compond cream too.

As a detailer, i decided to purchase these for headlight restoration, and small areas for paint correction. They work awesome, good quality for the price.

I bought this kit and some no. 7 rubbing compound to remove some scuffs and a little paint transfer from the right rear fender of my kia (my wife backed into it) and from the rear bumper of her car. The drill attachment is pretty stout, very decent quality, the velcro sticks great, and even though it came with an assortment of 7 foam pads, i only used one of the foam pads to take out the scuffing and transferred paint from both vehicles and then the woolen buffer pad to shine and clean it all. Worked like a champ, both vehicles look 100% better.

Given the price point of this product package of foam pads, i’d probably buy them again. But they are definitely not as durable as other major branded pads i have purchased from outlets that specialize in automotive detailing supplies. The hook-and-loop backing as well as the foam itself is more easily torn than on higher quality pads. The hook-and-loop backing of some of my pads appears to have debonded without tearing of the foam itself. Yet i found this kit useful for spot polishing using a drill motor.

Would have given five stars if wasn’t for the part that there is zero indication of what each pad is on the package. You have to visit the amazon page or make your own print out in order to figure them out. So yeah 3 stats for not including a simple piece of paper in the package.

Got this kit to restore my plastic headlights on my 2011 kia sorento with some headlight polish i bought at the auto parts store. It was perfect for the final polishing and i plan to use it for many other things. Good quality and i can see that these will hold up for a good number of projects before they deteriorate.

Works great and got at a nice price. Use with my cordless drill and mother’s headlight restorer and it works wonders. Photo shows the left headlight that was completed using the orange buffer sponge. Right headlight was not done.

So far they are very useful. It’s nice to get a set that is smaller. I might get a set of hook n loop backed pads for shoe shining. With a little patience these have proven useful for scrubbing off soap scum from shower and shower curtain. So far the pads have held together and worming well. Good variety of densities and a good price for the pack. I would (likely i will) buy again.

I love that this kit came with multiple pads of the same type of foam. I had to trim the backing plate because it was overhanging the pad a bit. Simple scissor cutting around the pad works well, or a razor blade would work too. Pad seem pretty well made, not the highest quality, or qc control, but they definitely aren’t terrible for headlight uses. I would buy again when they eventually need replacing.
