    1 x Kestrel DAS 6 Dual Action Polisher. 1 x 6” Backing Plate.

    1 x Poorboys SSR3 - Heavy Cut
    1x Deltalyo Carry Bag

    Or
    £230
    1x DAS6 500 watt dual action electric polisher with 1x 6" backing plate.

    1x Meguiars 80 Compound 946ml

    I'm swaying more towards the kit at £160 and then buying some jetseal 109 or similar.

    Thanks

    having been 'detailing' for a number of years, and always seem to be working on 'hard' paints like Audi, BMW etc...

    My choice wouldn't be a DA machine, nor Poorboys polishes...

    it all depends on how serious you want to get, how much time you have and how bad your paint it...

    for me though, rotary machine - they are not as dangerous as some people make out, you do really need to be a muppet to cause damage.... and I've found Scholl is my goto polishes.... Megs are good too....

    I recently got the DDJ Buff daddy with pads and am really pleased with it.

    I have had a look at this kit but I have not read any reviews on the 3m products that come with it.
