    thanks
    Yes you can use a yellow pad for either the Ultimate Compound, Ultimate Polish, or Ultimate Wax, if needed. Keep in mind if more defect removal is needed, the red compounding pad would be recommended with Ultimate Compound. Ultimate Polish is typically used with the yellow polishing pad. In regards to using a yellow polishing pad for applying Ultimate Wax this is OK, not ideal, but OK to do. Just remember when applying the wax you can move pretty quickly. We typically just do two 50% overlapping passes, one vertical, one horizontal, with light to moderate pressure, and then move to next section.

    many thanks for the precious advice.

    after applying the compound, the polish and the wax, which product do you recommend next?

    should i give paint protect a try? or should i simply wash my car and apply quick detailer afterwards.

    Some sort of protection would be what you want after doing some sort of paint correction. You can go with a carnauba wax or a sealant if you want something more durable and longer lasting (NXT, Ultimate Wax, M21, Paint Protect). It's personal preference.

    thanks

    Re: DA Power System

    I read some post, and you say it's better to use a drill that spins at 1800-2500 rpm but I would like to know which is the best average speed to be used to avoid overheating of the paint and cause damage

    Hi Rhnos,

    Either Ultimate Wax or Paint Protect after Ultimate Polish. You would not need to do both Ultimate Wax & Paint Protect, just one of the other.

    Hi gulluwing,

    We recommend using a drill with this 1800 - 2500 RPM range mainly because there is a reduction in the DA Power System Drill Attachment itself. You want to "counter act" for that reduction by having a higher speed drill in this range, especially when using the DA Power System for compounding. It should be noted that the attachment converts the rotary drill into a forced rotation oscillating DA, and you will not be spinning at these high RPMS because of the reduction in the attachment, so you really don't have to worry about excess heat build up or damage, provide you use good technique : )

    Hope this helps

    - Nick
