There was a chap demonstrating it last year at Malvern. It looked impressive, and I would have bought, but he couldn't tell me anything about using it on GRP.

I have done some searching and as with everything there are lovers and haters.Trying to find someone who has actually used a product as opposed to those who once read about it third hand is very difficult,I have made the decision and bought a hand sanding kit and at worst have wasted £70.Paint is ordered and coming so this car that I was NOT restoring is winning over me.Got to be better than watching the depressing news though.Thanks,Steve..

Retired Bodyshop man ++, I used Mirka products for many years! in the early days they were a bit like the cheaper end
of the market.
They have certainly come on well! still use on the little bits and pieces I do now.
One of the Youtube guys The Dutch Car Painter (top class painter by the way) uses Mirka products
Sorry not good at the linking game but you should be able to find him.
I mainly use Dry sanding with Dust extraction gear! both D/A discs and stripes
P80,P180,P360,P500 plus ods&sods of other grits.
Hope this is a bit of help.

Yup use them all the time and we used to use them at work.
Very easy to use and they used to last for quite sometime as well. Dust extraction is a must with a DA. I use a Pneumatic Mirka DA with a proper extraction system.
