View Full Version : can the Deep Crystal 3-step be applied w/rotary??

I've tried to search this out and haven't found anything.

I haven't gotten any professional line (will probably be getting #80, 83, 84, 82, 26, 20, and 3 to start with), and while I was waiting on that, I was wondering if the 3 step crystal polish would work with a rotary, as well as scratch X.

I've got a fairly scratched up car so start with, I was thinking of using 7006 + scratchX, 8006 + cleaner, 9006 + Polish, then step 3 wax by hand.

would that work, or a big no no?

Some people have used them, but it certainly doesnt seem as easy. How long will you be waiting between now and getting #80/#83? Might be worth it to just wait.

I've got a rotary, not a PC :)

But once I can afford the PC i'll probably get one.

Whoops.. I should read better...lemme edit that to say DOH :wall: .. :D

But on the same note then, ScratchX and the DC products are going to gum or dry out up even faster than with a PC. I dont think you will get much working time at all with them.

Not having used professional line before, and only using an orbital and a rotary incorrectly, I'm not sure what the real differences are.

I guess I'll find out! the only thing that stinks is I have to mail order everything, as any meguiars sellers are a fair poke away. hrm, maybe i'll see what I can do, maybe I'll hold out. Not sure.
