Critique my DA technique plz!

I've been detailing a few years now however I've not done much correction using my Das6 pro.

Would anyone be so kind to view my video and give me some feedback?

I'll watch it fully later but initially you need to loosen up and relax a little. Very rigid stance and maybe too much pressure. Ramp the speed up too


Remember to tape up your edges too

What products are you using?

It's hard to tell with that camera as the frame rate may be a little off creating a strobe effect but agree with AA. Too much pressure as the disc is bogging.

If it's any help, if you watch The Junkman's novice guide to paint correction, he advocates using 9lbs of pressure whilst correcting paint and to find out what 9lbs feels like, he suggested getting your bathroom scales and pushing down on the DA until you reach the desired figure. You need the DA on though and whilst i wouldn't say his teachings are gospel, that one i have tried to follow but adapt to the conditions and how the paintwork reacts to pad and polish combo.

Hope that helps

Well done for posting this and asking for critique. Firstly my main concern would be the lack of polish/product on the bonnet. Secondly you need to concentrate on the cross hatch pattern. It was poor. To get proper coverage you really need to half overlap on each pass. Lastly when you hit a contour like the right side of your bonnet you need to adjust. The video shows the pad stalling. You've moved from a flat surface over to a contour. You need to come at these from the opposite direction and as you hit the curve make sure the polisher is hitting the suface up and down and not coming across the curve. Hope this helps bud.

Not the best technique tbh. FAR FAR Too much pressure, moving the machine a bit too fast to begin with (in random directions), keeping it too flat, pad not spinning, any polish? Watch a few more videos

BUT, it can only get better
