    If you want to see this system in action we just posted up our new Quik Tips Video showcasing the DA Power System.

    Re: DA Power System

    Looks good... I could see me having a go with this.. .... D/A's are so expensive here. $400 for the Meguiars, and $300 for the Kestrel.. and you can't just go down to your local stockist and get them either... Gotta get them in from the suppliers...

    Might have to wait a while to get them though.. I've given up on trying to find the 2012 products and have decided to order some in... lol... (wanted to get my hands on the brake dust barrier and gold class spray)

    Re: DA Power System

    When I first saw this in a magazine before the 2013 actual release I was very hesitant, thinking "come on meguiars this is all you can do? A cheap DA wanna be" After further review I think of all the products launched I am most excited about THIS! Perfect for tiny areas, hard to reach spots, small jobs, awkward spots...also good for carpets and interior. I am going to use the **** out of this. Not for full jobs (i have a DA) but even last night I was working on my pillars and using something with much less surface area and slightly less setup time would have been great. I'll be sure to be in line for this.

    Thanks for the mat cleaning tip mike. I would have never used the foam pad that way but it makes sense. I have always used soft brushes and they don't remove anything without a ton of work.

    Now once that foam pad is used this way, is it suggested to isolate that pad for only mat cleaning use? To me common sense says one foam pad dedicated to mats, never to touch paint again.

    Video & DA System tool looks great! I see in the video Ultimate Compound and UPol are being used to remove fine defects. Can products like M09 Swirl Remover and M80 from the Mirror Glaze line also be used with the new tool? Will they have the same effeectiveness as the Ultimate/consumer products or are the Mirror Glaze products really intended for the DA in order to be effective?

    Well, in theory you could use anything from our old Deep Crystal Paint Cleaner all the way up to M101 if you wanted to. But talking specifically about the two products mentioned relative to UC and UP, you will get more cut from UC because it's definitely more aggressive than either M09 or M80 (or even M83 for that matter). If you have those older diminishing abrasive products on hand already and want to give them a go, by all means feel free. It really all comes down to what products are the very best match for your paint and its current condition. We package the products we do as accessory packs for this tool because they work across an extremely broad spectrum of paints and it makes the decision process for the average consumer very straightforward.

    Wow... Can't believe UL Polish is more agressive than M09, M80 or even M83. I would have guessed it would be UL Compound being more agressive than the Mirror Glaze items I mentioned. Amazing....

    Excuse me a second while I wipe the egg off my face here...........


    That was a bit of a typo on my part, and a very important one at that! UC (as in Ultimate Compound) is more aggressive than those three Mirror Glaze products, NOT UP (as in Ultimate Polish). My apologies for the confusion, and I'm going to change that in my earlier post in just a sec.

    For the record, UC is derived from M105, UP is derived from M205. Both have less cut than the respective M products they are derived from, however.
