DAS-6 PRO Correction on Ford Ka20th July, 2011 4
Not really a full detail, but more a quick demonstration to show just how well a DAS-6 PRO Dual Action Polisher can correct even quick badly scratched paint quickly and easily.
The subject a Ford KA, lady owner who says she accidently parked it in a bush!
You could clearly see the amount of swirls and Random Deep Scratches (RDS) in the paint under even natural daylight. Apparently under artifical light it looked absolutely shocking.
The Menzerna Polishing Pad in combination with the Menzerna Intensive Polish is a fantastic combo and comes highly recommended for correction on a wide range of paints.The pads are fairly cheap in comparison to other pads and are quite stiff. We find they give an excellent amount of ‘bite’ whilst being able to finish polishes down extremely well. The only downside is they aren’t the most durable pad with one typically lasting long enough to polish 1 or 2 cars.
Using 4 pea sized amounts of product, the machine was started on speed 1 to spread the polish before being increased to speed 5 for the majority of the correction. Using a slow overlapping movement the compound was worked until it had fully broken down. It takes about 5 minutes to fully break down Menzerna with a dual Action polisher and you can tell when it’s broken down as it almost dissapears into the paint just before it starts to dry.
The process was repeated so in total this was the result of two complete hits with the machine using the process described above.
As you can see for 10 minutes work it was possible to completely transform the paint to virtually the same level as when it rolled out of the factory. Normally the area would be refined again once fully corrected with a finishing polish and sealed with a wax. This is another area the polisher really excels but we’ll leave that for another day.
