Soft paint polishing kit

Last summer I bought a Championship White or should I say Cream Honda Integra DC5.

Iíve always been a keen detailer but knowing the car was 16 years old Iíve taken it to the next level. My cars have always been well looked after so never needed a proper polish. Ive got some track days booked and want to get the car properly sorted before I lay down the protection so iíll be buying the das6 pro from in2detailing.

Now I know the Ďteg has very soft paint so for simplicity I was looking at http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...MasterZ0000SP1 but I know this kit will have its shortfalls. What would you guys subsitute for the correction? The paint has some pretty bad swirls but Iím not expecting perfection since itís the first time Iíve had a proper go with a polisher.

Thanks

Chris

I'd be inclined to get the Menzerna 400 as well if you need deeper correction.

I'd not jump into heavy compounding just yet though, until you're sure the less aggressive polishes and pads are not up to the job...

Do you think the pad choices above will be enough?

The protection I use is quite good at hiding the defects in the sun so wonít be aiming for complete correction as I know the track will mean the car takes a hammering anyway.

Thanks for the advice.

Only way to know is to try - start off with least aggressive method, and work your way up. But the folks at Polished Bliss know their onions, so if your 'teg does have soft paint, chances are that kit will do a good job.

The kit you have shown is good for soft paint I would go with Menzerna 2500 with the tangerine (orange polishing pad) this will remove the swirls and finish down excellent. But I would practice with the DA before you go ahead and correct your paint. Yes it's white and can hide some defects but also having soft paint can have its drawbacks i.e. Finishing down can sometimes be a slight pain to get the finish looking sharp

But with practice and patience you can achieve great results

Remember it's all in the preparation before you go ahead and correct
