    Default first timer with a DAS6

    first time today with the das 6... only used the 3m blue hexologic pads for now as I only had AG SRP to use...
    results are ok..much easy to actually apply the polish and takes a lot less time.. but deffinately need a proper light cutting polish like the ssr1 or something similar..
    waxed by hand and used a buffing bonnet to remove the wax..however didnt work too great as I think i used too much wax... so had to finish of with a MF..
    used a 6" pad for the bonet and doors etc and used the 3.5" pads on smaller areas... however they are far too small.. so might have to get some 4 or 5" pads too..
    also found the 6" backing plate too big for the 6" pads... was scared of catching the paintwork..so will also have to get myself a 5" backing plate...
    its turning out to be an expensive lark this detailing ;-)
    oh..it was also too dark for pics as I only decided to do it at around 1 pm..
    will get some tomorrow...after I take it for a blast when Angel Tuning have done the biz with the car

    You're behind the times Messsy - nice to see you posting again. I have a DAS6 Pro and a snowfoam lance, both of which I've used - accidentally snowfoamed my glasses, couldn't see a thing...
    Tried Megs #7 machine polished on my car followed by hand wax Megs #16, got some Megs #20 sealant now, hoping to get Wendy's car done this week, if my feet/ankles will go down enough for me to get my shoes on!
