    Re: DA Power System

    Removing swirls will take more pressure than just waxing, and so will make the motor work harder, drain the battery faster. Maybe if you were just trying a panel or so a day on softer paint. Although waxing by hand is pretty easy, it is the swirl removal that is the hardest work by hand.

    I would just have UC and UP on the shelf. You can do a test spot with UP, and if not, a test spot with UC on the polishing pad. Then UC on the cutting pad if still nothing.

    The UC on a cutting pad seemed pretty easy to use, and not too strong when I tried it out, but nothing wrong with starting milder to be sure/safe.

    Re: DA Power System

    I just got a super deal from Advance Auto Parts (on line) for the DA Power System plus the Polishing Pads set along with three other Meguiar products The order totaled $107.25 before a discount of $40 plus free shipping. The actual total with tax was $70.30. The promo code I used was TRT41 and I had to speak to a customer service rep to get the order through because one item apparently did not qualify for this promo discount. Anyway, I think this is a pretty good deal for anyone thinking about buying a DA Power System. Good luck to all!

    Anyone tried Swirl-X on either the cutting or polishing disc?... If these products ever make it here, I might try it (least aggressive approach n all...) as I have a fairly full bottle I don't use any more since getting Ultimate Polish..

    The NZ Meguiars retailer finally has them..

    around 125 for the attachment and a polishing pad, and 33 for each of the dual pad kits..

    Re: DA Power System

    Well, my complete package came tonight... Didn't really want to attempt any major work in the limited hours left in the day, but curiosity got the better of me, so I cleaned up the spoiler of one of my cars and gave all 3 pads a go.

    Certainly looks better, but I think there is room for a lot of improvement... I think I just need to get used to this whole 'concept' of defect removal, and getting the right pressure and speed with the burgundy pad and UC..

    I can definitely see it being a winner for applying the Polish and Wax..

    Re: DA Power System

    Have now spent a few more hours with this attachment on my Daily Driver.... Half of the car is now done (taking my time, as I'm trying to make some improvement with each panel) ... The correction aspect is still learning in progress, but still much easier on the body than attempting by hand... but the polishing and waxing... Wow, for the price, I can't recommend it enough to all the amateur detailers out there doing their own cars by hand..

    I've run UC/UP/ULW and the bonnet and front two corners, and UC/NXT2.0 on the rest of one side of the car... I think I'll start using NXT again on my DD now, and just use the UP and ULW on the V8...
