Re: Soft interface pad

I think a lot of the problem is how you apply pressure during the sand process. If you keep the pad as

Re: Fighting an uphill battle

Perhaps a written warranty/money back guarantee would help get retail business. Dealer work is tough now, with all the competition driving prices into the ground, plus the ability of dealers to do it themselves.
