SRP by machine

Got some kicking around, never glazed with a machine before, though I'd give it a pop. Das6 pro, reckon I'll use my CG hex logic black pad.

Any advice? Machine speeds, arm speed, number of passes? Figure I'd get a ball park before going gungho.

2-3 passes, speed 2-3 (high enough to spin the pad), medium fast arm movement (you are not correcting so you dont need to go slow).

I dont think you can really mess this up whichever way you do it

Great, didn't think I would be able to mess it up. Glad this will be a quite quick and easy solution for my minor swirls on the daily driver. Shouldn't take long to do the car.

Yeah you can't go far wrong with SRP my machine. I use a white pad which I think adds a very very fine cut.

I use a white cc pad on both Lexus so you should be fine with a black pad

SRP can work very well on a da. Just be careful with amounts used as I found the clogged the pad if i wasn't careful.

Right! I was just thinking 3 pea size dots for 1/4 of a panel to be rough

AG recommend a damp pad as well, I always keep a water bottle spritzer nearby when using SRP by machine
