Megs #83 with PC 7424 ??

Just got a good day on Thursday -past to try the Megs #83 DAC polish with my PC (Virtually first-time using the PC)

I dabbed it onto the pad and dabbed some onto the paint with a foam pad;
Applied with setting 4 and buffed off with a Megs Supreme-Shine microfibre towel.

As for swirl-removing and a smooth-to-touch finish - I was impressed

I'm a bit confused as I have a slight blurr or a haze in my paintwork - especialy on the sides of the car. I was hoping the #83 would help bring back a better "mirror finish"

Any hints/tips on this?

Cheers
Trev

trev, if you have used #83 you should use something less aggresive ontop, did you ?, for example megs #80, #83 will leave slight dullness and #80 will remove the dullness and give your paint the shine

With our typical irish weather I havent had the chance to get anything else done yet
I have Megs #80, #21 and #16 - also have P21S Concours-look Wax

Is setting 4 on the PC fast enough for #83?
Tried setting 5 but gave me a cramp in my arm - didn't apply any pressure just the weight of the machine itself

I'd personally try and bump it up to 5. You can apply pressure...whenever i do though my car makes a heck of a noise!

After #83, follow up with #80, it'll remove the blur/hazing you've described

Like others have said you need to follow up with a milder polish to remove the hazing.

Brave man for trying 83 almost straight away, I built myself up to products like that!
