    Wow good question. I think they will fit because of the hook and loop configuration of both pads being used.
    The results you will get may differ because the motion of the DAPS is not the exact same as a DA but I bet you would achieve greater cut than burgundy pad either way.
    Also you could look into increasing the product cut to something like M105 or M101.

    And now when I get home I know exactly the process I am going to try to clean up my piano black finish that is always a nightmare.

    Re: DA Power System

    I used the DA power system three days ago. I drive a Black Tahoe, and the paint was in pretty bad shape because of swirling. I used the tool to put a coat of Meguiar's polish to fight the swirling. Next a did a coat of the new black wax followed by a coat of UW. I must say this car looks slick. However, one of my favorite features to detailing is making the tires shine, especially on a black care. I have always used Meguiar's Hot Shine Tire Coating, and the tires come out looking fantastic. I just bought this Tahoe a couple of months back, and the last two times I applied the spray to the tires it seems that splatters are thrown on the paint of the vehicle the next day after I drive it. I can tell it is from the tires because the wheel wells are covered in it. I only make one pass over the tires when applying. Should I use a different product? Or use a pad and make a pass over the tire? \

    Thanks!

    You can take an older terry cloth and blot/wipe the tire to try to take off some excess product.

    Re: DA Power System

    Hi everyone,

    New to this forum and I just wanted to say that this looks like a great community. I am not new to detailing but am always learning. I have a question about the DA Power System. I recently bought one and used the red cutting pad with Ultimate Compound on a corded drill rated at 4.1 Amps. I found that the system worked great on my black Honda Prelude in increasing the paint's overall clarity and removing oxidation but had almost no effect at all on the swirl marks. I followed the directions, working the compound in a small area. I also followed the work area up with Ultimate Polish using the yellow pad and then finally with Ultimate Wax. I'm confused as to why the swirl marks are still there. Am I doing something wrong? Do I just need a more powerful drill? More pressure? Any input would help greatly. Thank you.

    Re: DA Power System

    The first guess would be pressure and speed. Faster speed for the drill, slower speed for your arms.

    I'm using the drill at max speed, and I tried playing with various pressure levels and still no luck. Is there a minimum power rating that the drill must be? I'm thinking mine might be too weak for the job. Thanks for the reply.

    Re: DA Power System

    What speed is your drill? 1800 - 2500 rpm's is recommended for max speed.

    I can't find the speed rating anywhere on it, and I lost the box years ago. It just says 4.1 Amps.

    Re: DA Power System

    What manufacturer and model is it? I would imagine you can find the specifications on-line.

    Can this system be used with a 1500 cordless power drill. I bought a Dewalt and was gonna use it with the DA power system for waxing and polishing.
