    Okay, I can't get DACP or SFP locally... But I was in Part Source today, and they had #7 Show Car Glaze, and #9 Swirl Remover. I looked at both, and they said they could be done by hand or rotary.

    Anyone have anything to say about those ones? Worth my time trying?

    #9 Swirl Remover is a comparable product to SFP. Some people here use it with great results. #7 is a very light polish, along the lines of Vanilla Moose or S100 SEPC. Mostly oils, for use just before you wax.

    They will work fine as long as you have no major problems with your paint. EMT nailed their attributes perfectly.

    Thanks for the breakdown guys. One more question: which would you recommend more, meg's #9 or S100 SEPC? I have both readily available to buy at local stores.


    On a side note, it sometimes really sucks living in Canada. I would really like to get some Vanilla Moose and EX-P, but I don't want to pay a $50 brokerage fee on top of shipping :(

    I'd get both since SEC has very light abrasives and is mostly polishing oils. Works very well between #9 and S100 Paste Wax.

    SEC says on the bottle to apply with a damp sponge? Can I just use the sponge side of a sponge / terrycloth applicator?

    Do you bother wetting it?

    You can use that, and I would wet it if that's what the instructions call for.

    I use those yellow foam applicators that you can get just about anywhere... wet it down with some quick detailer.
