    Exclamation DA Polishing Help

    OK, I have been at this for to long and I need help. I have a PC DA, LC yellow, orange, white and black pads and have been using Meguires. In which case I have No. 2, 7 and 9. I can not get the fine scratches out!!!!!. Someone with great knowledge and experience please tell me specifically what I need to do. I mean tell me the pad, the polish and the speed (plus whether I need to add pressure to the buffer). I have tried everything. I will be finishing the paint with Zaino.

    I used Pinnacle medium swirl remover followed by Pinnacle ultra fine swirl remover. I used a Lake Country orange pad for the medium scratch remover and a white pad(or finishing pad) for the ultra fine scratch remover. Do a 2x2ft. area at a time using slow back and forth slightly overlapping passes. Only use about a quarter size amount of product on a 2x2 ft. area and work it until it turns hazey. Buff area with a microfibre clothe after using buffer on area. Go to this link http://www.autogeek.net/pinnacleprod.html
    and click on the video instruction which is towards the middle of the page.When it comes up click on polish. This should give you a better idea. The site has several informative articles etc. Hope that helps!

    O by the way I have only the experience of doing my car. I also misread your post and thought you wanted to get rid of swirls. Anyways that site is pretty good.

    Get some Meguiars #83 work it at 5.5k opm with the DA and orange pad. Apply pressure on the bad areas moving the buffer about 1" a second to cover about 1 foot or so squeare area initially. Check your wotk, and repeat as necessary. It may require a few passes, and as the polish start to break down, lessen up on the pressure as if polishin. Follow up with the # 80 with the white pad at 4k opm. You could use Meguiars # 7 glaze, and top it with a carnuaba wax

    Thanks,

    One other question. Why #82 and #83? Will a DA not work at all using #2 and #9 or does it just take longer?

    I've tried #2 and #9 i couldn't get the results I wanted
    I know the combo of #83 followed by #80 works better with the PC
    Most people doing serious detailing, use this combo with great success
