Das6kit for Lexus
 
Hi guys,

I am going to order a DAS6 Pro and was wondering what the best kit would be for a Lexus - it is black and has had a decent amount of paintwork by the dealer before I bought it but detailed last year said the paint is still pretty soft.

Any thought?

Brian.

I would say the Sonax range of polishes for soft paint along with the new quantum hex pads

Definitely Sonax EX04-06

I personally use LC pads

Hi,

As a Mazda owner as soon as I see the phrase "soft paint" I'm going to suggest a slightly left field product - Glare.

It doesn't remove clearcoat like a polish, it behaves like a glaze but provides a permanent, bonded fill.

Do a search and see what you think.

There are many other excellent products.

Good luck with your choice.

Andy.

Member "Shiny" on here who has a Nighthawk Black Honda with very soft paint also uses Glare - he then waxes on top. Although the Glare system can replace your LSP (the final layer, although termed a polish, is effectively a sealant as well) I think of it as a replacement / supplement to machine polishing - ie something you can do periodically to keep your clearcoat in good nick.

Brian, given your Lexus is not that long ago machine polished, assuming you're only looking at wash marring etc you could just use Glare Spider to fill those marks, then use a couple of coats of Professional+ to seal that in. Once done you can wax, seal etc as normal, you'd just need to clean the surface back before you use Glare again (it needs to bond directly to the clearcoat, or to itself). I use panel wipe for this if I use Glare on my car.

Worth also noting that Glare does a great job of keeping "chrome" trim on a car shiny and protected.

I'll also give a shout for Scholl S20 Black which is actually Scholl's recommended polish for soft paint in tandem with their black waffle and "honey" spider pads.

Take a look at this, been using PF for many years especially on soft paint

Have you used Sonax 04/06 chongo? I understood it was "Perfect Finish but for DA polishers"?

04-06 is PF for DA but PF can be used to great effect on a DA. As Chongo said it's great on soft paint as a one step or refining stage, works well with foam pads and better with MF Polishing pad.

I used it the other day to get rid of an RDS on my mate's BMW. Love it, fantastic polish. Gotta thank Chongo for the recommendation, he put me onto it [emoji1303]

Used EX many times bud:thumb: PF is not only for roatary it can be used by any other machine polisher :thumb: it was only said that by Sonax because they only used and tested it with a Rotary :thumb: I only use my Rupes with PF:wave:
