    A good cordless drill is fine for applying wax, but for the heavier work needed, and time involved in defect removal, there are very, very few cordless drills up to the task. Go corded and you'll be a lot happier.

    Re: DA Power System

    I have read reviews where people have tried it with a cordless drill.

    Reports are it's good for applying wax, and even surprisingly good for some defect removal.

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Pep boys? I checked and seen the DAP there but didn't really notice if they had the separate pads.
    You can get them on line or check your local Detail Shop. Mine, Detailing.com has them.

    As far as the DAP goes, it's awesome! I used it the other night at Meg's.
    It works great, not awkward and I could totally detail anything with this little monster!
    So for 60 bucks this thing rocks!!!!

    Do you need to use a corded drill or can you use a cordless?

    Re: DA Power System

    Just curious...Makita makes a cordless drill capable of up to 2,000RPM. Would this work for some defect removal? I know an electrical one is the way to go with this system, but I was wondering if anyone knew or used the Makita LXFD03Z drill for the DA system. My Dad has this drill... thanks!

    Meguiar's recommended a drill with at least 2500 rpm for the DA to work properly.
    Remember the actual dual action part slows down the RPM. so the most powerful drill you have will do the best job for you.
    but I don't want to discourage you. Give it a try, see what happens. You might have to work it longer to achieve the results you want.

    Speed isn't everything.... but depending on what you work on, you may or may not need much power. Esp if just polishing and waxing.

    Re: DA Power System

    Long time member, but hardly post since I get so much info from reading here, but I was able to use a machine for the first time using the meguiars products and I was super shocked how great my rubbing compount, polish, and wax job came out. I have always applied the products by hand and was satisified since I was not trying to win shows, but now im a tad older i decided to use a machine and the DA power system shortened my wax time and work load. I used to apply compound, polish, and wax and take me roughly 8 hours all by hand and my whole arm be tired, but now the DA system cut it in half and im not tired at all AND NOT only that it improved my wax job vs hand. Love the meguiar stuff....INCREDIBLE.
