    they were out of the Poorboy EX-P and I like the look of carnuba so I figured I'd try the EX with C

    EDIT: I should use the medium pad with the #9 right?

    That is exciting. I love using my PC. I wish I knew about the 10% coupon when I ordered mine though :hs:

    They emailed me the coupon code when I signed up at autopia the other day :dunno:

    I can't wait - all the vehicles in my family have swirl marks - I'm gonna be a detailing machine next week

    My car has swirls too. I used the PC with DACP (yellow pad), SFP (white pad), Vanilla Moose (another white pad), then hand waxed with carnauba Moose. It looks better, but not like the pics of Scottwax cars. My car was in a collision and I'm starting to think the body shop that fixed it may have not done the greatest job repainting. :(

    Yeah whenever insurance is paying most bodyshops skimp on the work like wetsanding between coats.

    A bodyshop can easily make or break a finish

    #9 may not be strong enough if the swirls are deep. I prefer using #82 Swirl Free which is a bit more aggressive, or #80 Speed Glaze which is slightly more aggressive initially than #82 but breaks down more quickly.

    You can use #9 with the orange cutting pad if necessary.

    I already have some DACP - could I use that first if the swirls are to bad?

    Yep, if they are deep enough you may need to. It is more abrasive that 9, 80, or 82. You may need to follow up with one of those after DACP.
