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.

    Re: DA Power System

    Just an extra thumbsup from today for this system from me, a regular car owner, who doesn't detail cars for a living.... I've always been a fan of UC, UP and ULW by hand (even if it should be said my hand my UC applications have always been more for extra strength cleaning and polishing than defect removal... aside from the odd bird poop or scratch, which it has been effective on by hand) ... and I've been a fan of this D/A system and how much it speeds up my application of Ultimate Polish and Ultimate Liquid Wax ever since I bought it..

    Well, today I had my first decent attempt at taking my time on a panel and trying to remove some decent defects... Long story short, last weekend my dog was tied up at home while we were out on a car run, and managed to put some pretty decent scratches up one side of my daily driver (in my avatar) .... I didn't even spot them until I left for work on Monday morning... well, when I got to work I grabbed my car kit out of the back, spray detailed some of the scratched areas, and tested some Scratch-X by hand, just to see what I was in for... Some of them were pretty deep, but I was hopeful I could at least soften most of them.

    So today, one weekend later, I give my car a wash and dry, and try out UC using the burgundy pad slowly on two of the panels... To my suprise I've removed all but the worst of it, and even the worst of it is softened that much, that you will only notice it up close.. given that it is a daily driver which will soon be moving to gravel roads, and has stone chips all over the bonnet, an application of UP and NXT2 later, I'm happy with that...

    Re: DA Power System

    i just bought the DA Power System.

    now i need the pads and the compound, polish and wax.

    what is the size of the solution (compound, polish or wax) which is in the powerpack?

    i have a hatchback, will this be enough to do the whole car or should i buy the solution and the pads separately because i can see that the size of the solution is around 500ml when on its own.

    please help!

    thanks

    Re: DA Power System

    is it mandatory to use the red pad for compound, the yellow pad for polishing and the black pad for waxing?

    or can i use any power pads at random?

    thanks

    It is not mandatory but we would not recommend using any product which does not contain abrasives or cleaning ability with the red compounding pad.

    Re: DA Power System

    Can you use this to correct headlights? What are the steps? maroon with Pastic compound, then yellow with plastic polish? what if you use a foam interface pad and start with wet sanding headlights?

    In regards to headlight restoration, if you are sanding the headlight, typically a rotary is needed to remove the sanding marks, like a drill or rotary polisher tool. If you are not sanding, and just are trying to remove light oxidation, using the DA Power System with some PlastX on either the polishing or compounding pad would have the ability to remove the light oxidation. We do not approve or recommend this tool for sanding, but we do approve it for use as the first step in our G2000 Perfect Clarity Headlight Restoration Kit.
