The Cyclo 5-Pro Mark II is a versatile polisher that makes an excellent addition to any detailing toolbox. It’s for everyone from the car enthusiast to the seasoned, professional detailer. This American-made polisher by Cyclo Toolmakers has so many uses that it’s going to take more than one post to give a good introduction. Today, we’ll focus on some of the ways to use the Cyclo 5-Pro Mark II on the exterior of your vehicle.

Cyclo PolisherWe can’t talk about the Cyclo 5-Pro Mark II without pointing out some of the features that make it such a good choice for anyone who’s seeking quality finishes and versatility in a polisher. The Cyclo 5-Pro Mark II is a dual-head polisher that mimics the motion of a hand polish. Its dual orbiting heads are designed to eliminate the common issues of many rotary polishers, including heat build-up and vibration. Without heat build-up you avoid burns and low vibration means less hand fatigue, so you can get more work done. In short, the Cyclo 5-Pro Mark II is a durable, well made product that can be used for exterior and interior vehicle projects.

All of these features come together to give you several options. The Cyclo 5-Pro Mark II will allow you to have excellent results on your vehicle, whether it’s a car, truck, RV, boat, or even airplane. The Cyclo 5-Pro Mark II can be used for polishing, removing swirls, deoxidation, sealant and wax application, restoring headlights, and more. To close out today’s post, we’ll focus on three popular ways to use the Cyclo 5-Pro Mark II.

3 Popular Uses for your Cyclo 5-Pro Mark II

  1. Paint decontamination. When your vehicle’s paint job is in good condition, a basic paint decontamination will give you the shine you’re seeking. After a good wash, the Cyclo Polisher can be used to decontaminate the painted finish with the washable reusable Nanoskin Autoscrub Pads – all the Cyclo heads and pads come with the convenient velcro-like hooks and loops for quick and easy changes. Be sure to use Detail Pro Detailing Spray to lubricate the pads. Also, unlike clay bars these Nanoskin Autoscrub Pads can be rinsed off with water for reuse, even if they hit the shop floor or fall onto the driveway. 
  2. Removing scratches and swirls. If your vehicle’s paint job has seen better days, this is the first step to restoring a showroom finish. Remove scratches and swirls from the paint by using Wool Cutting Pads with Detail Pro Compound, working one section at a time with a 50% overlap to get a flawless finish. Buff away any residue with a microfiber towel.
  3. Paint Finishing. This is the final step after removing scratches and swirls. Cutting pads remove layers of protective finish on your paint, and without a protective coating, the painted finish is at risk of staining and new scratches. To replace this coating and protect the paint job that you just removed swirls and scratches from, use the White Finishing Pads on your polisher to apply Detail Pro Pro Wax, or for longer lasting protection Detail Pro Poly Sealant. Again, when you do this it’s best to work one section at a time with a 50% overlap to get a flawless finish and protect the finish from grit, grime, and dust.
