1) I dont earn any revenue from the sales or use of DK products

2) I am not trying to be one of these "vloggers" who feel their opinion on a product should in anyway matter or scare a manufacturer, my opinions are just that, an opinion

3) I polish cars to a high level 7 days a week, I don't earn a living elsewhere so am fully focused on refinishing paint

DK 1.1 is the closest liquid I've found to perfect. It isn't perfect, nothing is, but this is the closest to it so far. It balances cut and finish like nothing before it. Panels stay cooler than with other compounds, the lubricants are sublime and there is minimal filling. Buff off is effortless so its safer for soft clear, it messes with sensitive clear less than most other compounds and its mega for single stage paints due to said lubrication
Because of all of the above it can be used on the worst paints with VERY heavy pads, on bad paint with an mf pad or as a one step enhancement product on foam. It honestly barely needs finishing down

Finale is excellent. It didn't blow me away like 1.1, but it is very reliable. Prefers a slower speed than other finishing polishes but shares a lot of the same characteristics as 1.1
Both are worth having but 1.1 changed my business, I think its spectacular
thanks for the reply Your work is awesome!

I would be using on a force drive polisher, Have you ever used DK1.1 mixed with finale as it says on the website the 2 combined make for a great one step enhancement?

Never ever found the need, 1.1 is spectacular on its own but I wouldn't tell you not to try it

From What I've read, it works great no matter what pad type.

If one were to compare DK compounds to the range from Scholl (which i'm familiar with) which product from DK replaces which Scholl counter part?

DK 1.1 : (Scholl S3 ?)
DK 3.3 : (Scholl S20 ?)
DK Finale : (Scholl S40 ?)

Loves wool on a rotary, MF pads on a random orbital work great, urofibre especially, and the foam pads that buff and shine make also

I haven't tried 3.3, but yes with the others. 1.1 would be like S3xxl and finale like S40

I brought a set of the sample bottles from Imran. They are amazing polishes. Having used 3M range for years. These are a million times better to use. Feel so much safer on plastic too. Plus very little dust
