Thanks. Yes, that is the problem with fillers. I put some BH DSW on after and it came up a treat

I'm building up my confidence to using something with some cut in it.

Thanks.
My understanding from reading the Carpro blurb was that it will remove clear coat if you use it with a cutting pad. If used with a finishing pad it will just clean and fill.

Thank you.
Has anybody applied a second coat of this some months after the initial coat? Can it be applied straight on or does the initial layer have to be removed first?

I'm buying a DAP for the first time next week. I'm looking to do some very minor paint correction ie very light swirl marks. I'm pretty sure I want to correct rather than fill, unless somebody...

Apologies, typo on my part, it is indeed the das 6 v2 that is £80 not the pro.

How does one get the discount that Sye refers to?

I did consider the Argos one in the past but was put off because I read that the cable is quite short which could be a pita.
