    Re: DA Power System

    What ever happened to this part of the DA PowerSystem Kit? I intended to mainly use the DA powersystem for interior work.

    It hasn't quite been finalized yet so introduction has been delayed a bit. We determined that a bit of further testing was needed and we'd rather delay it than release a "not quite ready for prime time" product. We appreciate your patience, but we're confident it will be worth the wait.

    Great, looking forward to the release.

    I completely understand the intended use of the pads I mentions below in my comparison. I am just trying to understand the differences between new items and existing items in the product line. And based on the difference seeing if there is anything even close to a viable substitute. I would like to do a better quicker job on interiors, I have the tool just need certain items.

    What would be the difference between what looks like a terry, wool or microfiber pad in the kit vs. Meguiar's Knitted Wool Cutting Pad, W4003 - 3 inch or Meguiar's Microfiber Finishing Discs, DMF3 - 3 inch? I know neither are intended for carpet cleaning just wondering what would happen if I would use either for carpet cleaning. Would those even hook up to the powersystem backing plate? I imagine the pad in the kit pictured is thicker than these other pads too.

    Same thing for the foam pad. I looks extremely porous compare to soft buff polishing pad, but what risks do I run using a polishing pad. Would that just rip up leather and leatherette?

    Re: DA Power System

    Got my DA ship from the US to Singapore. and bought 2 extra polishing pads and 2 finishing pads. I applied cleaner wax with polishing pad and NXT wax with finishing pad.

    It was much easy to apply than by hand. However I always have this problem. After removing NAX wax with a microfiber cloth, it seems to have excess oil on the paint. I cant wipe the excess oil away with my cloth. I suspect that it might be due to my microfiber cloth. I got it cheap and the quality might not be great.

    I can see the excess oil under light. Any suggessions?

    You also may be applying wax too thick, or not letting it dry long enough.

    Re: DA Power System

    I wash and clayed my car today. Then i used da with cleaner wax. Cleaner wax is very easy to remove. After that, i applied nxt wax over it and when removing the wax, i realised there are many black little dot stuck into the paint. When i wiped my cloth to remove the nxt, these little dots seems to be stuck inside the paint and making the wax oil to appear. Its hard to wipe off the excess oils.

    this time i applied very little wax and i suspect that is due to these little dots. As i frequently parked my car near a factory, i suspect these little dots are metal particles. The factory cuts metals and the particles might have embedded into my car paint..

    After trying so hard to completely remove nxt wax, i only applied cleaner wax to the other side of my car.

    Im in Singapore and its very humid and hot over here. 30 to 35 degree celsius most of the time and i park my car in the open. Do you think by applying cleaner wax once every month has adequate protection? Or should i do it every 2 weeks?

    i might use ultimate compound to remove the little metal dots but not be doing it anytime soon.

    Did the clay not remove the black dots?

    Re: DA Power System

    Nope the clay did not remove the little dots. Not too sure how far the metal stuck into the paint.. It can only be see if you really look closely under sun. If not it is alomost invincible but the paint surface is not too smooth.

    so could i do with cleaner wax every month?


    another question. What happen if i heat my nxt wax to liquid and cool it again. Can i still use it?

    1. Well if the black dots appear to be some sort of rust/fall out... something like the IronX product may be good to try. TRIX also is possible, though I didnt like it quite as much.

    2. You can certainly Cleaner/Wax every month, no harm there.

    3. What? Why? Did you buy the Nxt 2.0 paste?
