Thanks,

Looks great and look forward to reading more about it.

I'm confused as to I thought this was a single stage correction machine yet there are two polishes and a couple of pads?

4 pads with the system. I guess it will depend on paint hardness to an extent or indeed how bad defects are - no point using an aggressive combination on the lightest of defects.

The Blue GTI Miracle detailed was pretty battered and the transformation was amazing from a single stage, however a proportionate amount of clearcoat would have been removed. On a car with light marring I would suspect the lighter combos would be used, but perhaps this is where you'd switch out to a rotary anyway - it's another tool in a detailers arsenal IMO, not a replacement for anything. I have 2 rotary's and 2 DA's still, all of which I'll retain.

I can't wait to give it a go!

Russ.

Ahh actually thought that Russ as soon as I posted it, using the harshest combo on hard paint with heavy defects, one pad down with the coarse polish for hard paint with average defects then the softer pads and polish for soft paints and depending on defects.

Thanks
