Das6 pro pad/compound selection

Looking to correct swirls on BMW and RENAULT lacquers.

I have CG Hexlogic orange pad and megs UC but it's gonna take forever using this combo.

What's my alternative options?

Same combo as I use on my BMW, might take a few passes but it's still effective and, importantly, safe and a process I can live with as I wouldn't be looking to compound every year

Although even then I don't strive for too much correction as it's a daily driver and I rely on SRP to fill before a layer of BH DSW

Using a stronger product like Megs M101 will help but if you want to really speed things up then get a rotary. Maybe something like D300 with some MF pads is worth considering

Until you have the car in front of you and done a test spot, it is not easy to guess at how long it will take.

Hi,

Give Scholl S20 a go or for a different way forward try Glare.

Have a look at this:

Hexlogics will be fine with Glare by DA

Good Luck.

Andy.

Glare is an additive process ie it fills in rather than cutting paint away. As such you don't have to worry about going too far, and so you can work faster.

The wing I did at the bottom of the thread Andy linked to was not in a good way, and I got it looking pretty tidy in maybe 20 minutes (and that was my first time using the system). If all you're looking for is swirl correction rather than anything that could be called a scratch, I would say that Glare Spider, Micro and Pro could do a good job for you, and actually be faster than a cut and refine process using traditional polishes. Especially on a daily driver, the fact that you're not cutting paint away means you can polish as often as you need to hide the odd scuff or whatever as they occur.

It should also be noted that Glare is additive ie you build it up in layers. Each time you use it you use Professional + to seal in the correction / filling done by the previous stages. But Pro+ also doubles as an LSP so you don't need to apply anything on top, you can just come back to it another day, wash it down and lay down some more Glare and improve the correction. EDIT: For clarity, you *can* apply other sealants and waxes on top of Glare, the only thing is to get future layers of Glare to bond properly you need to strip them off.

Have a read of this thread for a full paint "correction" being done by stangalang using Glare.
