Photos please.

We need to have an idea what sort of swirls, scratches etc. you're working on and what car you own so we can take an informed guess about paint hardness etc. (assuming you haven't got a paint depth gauge!).

Remember the golden rule: Always start with the least aggressive pad/polish combination. You can always go up.

If you've got something like SRP that won't do much......but....it will allow you time to get more familiar with the DA.

I have a white 61 plate vw golf no scratches just swirls and a vw t5 55 plate that has more scratches and in need of a good polish. I have poorboys diamond white and ag srp. I will try and get some pictures of both tomorrow. Still trying to make my mind up on either the Duren with a extra 70mm backing plate and sticking with the pads that comes with it or the Argos one with a 70mm and 125mm backing plate, and then buying the pads I need.

Which hosting site are you working with?

Photobucket? Flickr? Imagur? Something else?

I have not got any of these, which is a pain. Is there any other way I can get the photos way?

Hi,

I'm happy to be corrected by those with more computer/website knowledge (not difficult ) but I think you have to have one of these to upload your pics to DW.

I've used photobucket but get on much better with Flickr.

Have a look here:

If you get Tapatalk on a smartphone, it will sort out the image hosting for you. The quality isn't amazing but adequate for most purposes.
