    [TD="class: alt1"] Hi All!

    Well I have finally got around to using my DAS 6 Pro on my own car.
    I watched all of Junkman's You Tube videos to get a feel for the techniques. I have then had plenty of practice on some body panels that I got from the local body shop and scratched them up good, and was amazed at how much correction I got.

    The problem is, my current set up of Chemical Guys Hexlogic pads and Meguiars 105 & 205 doesn't seem to cut it.

    I have spent a day so far on half of the bonnet with a Orange Hexlogic Pad and 105 but apart from removing a few scratches, it's not really touching it.

    I realise that Audi paint is hard and it takes time, but surely not this long?????

    I have very light scratches and swirl marks so it's nothing major.

    Should I get a yellow (heavy Cut) CG Hexlogic pad?

    Any advice would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Hi I've just used the same set up (check out the thread) and managed to remove nearly all the marks I had and leave the bonnet with a glass like feel.

    I use a DAS-6 with Hex Logic orange and only Megs Ultimate Compound (not as much cut as 101) and get good results on my Misano S3.

    That's only about 4 passes, one application of polish and not moved down to a white pad yet.
