    i`ve been using sonus sfx pads , vx paint isn`t hard so the the sfx2 pad is all you need when it comes to correction work as in removing swirls , then drop down to the less aggressive pad like the sfx 3 pad for polishing / refining ect . if i`m applying glaze i`d drop down again to the softest pad sfx4 ,

    others will have there personal preference but the sonus pads work well with the DA due to being nice n flat

      one example i used a few times

      sfx 2 pad / P1 polish ( for removing swirls )
      sfx 3 pad / megs #205
      sfx 4 pad / poorboys blackhole glaze

      as said theres so many options and personal preferences

        Thanks for the tips daz I was looking at juicy jens kit with the 3m products and pads have you used the hex logic pads??

          didn`t like the hex pads on DA , i prefer the flat sonus pads but as said thats just personal preference , same goes for the poish i use , i tried sample of 3m , menz , megs , and when it comes to removing swirls i found the g-tech P1 to be the quickest when it comes to removing swirls , P1 does need an extra spritz of water to keep the dust at bay due to being water based where as the others i mentioned are oil based , again personal preference , i`ve known a few that go straight onto glazes after using the P1 both on the sfx 2 and then again on the sfx 3 pad as the polish is pad dependent . another all in polish thats getting mentioned a lot these days is the scholl concept 17 which also is water based but i can`t comment on the as i`ve yet to try it out ,

              which ever you choose i`m sure you`ll be happy with , a good tip is to try and get sample bottles of products plus that way your not out of pocket if you don`t like it , also you`ll be suprised just how long the sample bottles last as very little goes a very long way regardless of which product you choose

              have fun looking mate

                If you want soem sample pots of 3M i think Juicy does some in a kit ?

                and also try some of the above stuff Daz said about, we started on Sonus and SFX stuff cause the kit we brought had them in it.
