Hi all,

Just decided to buy one of the above but the site i'm looking at does different deals and just want to know which would be the best for me and is there anything else I would need?

I have a panther black '57built ST (on a 09 plate), with light swirl marks that are driving me mad, so its only light work I'll be needing to do.

Heres the one's I'm looking at:

http://www.i4detailing.co.uk/acatalog/Kestrel_DAS-6_Menz_Kit_1_1.html

http://www.i4detailing.co.uk/acatalog/Kestrel_DAS-6_Menz_Kit_2_1.html (think for harder paint?)

http://www.i4detailing.co.uk/acatalog/Kestrel_DAS-6_Sonus_Kit_1.html

Reading up on things, ford paint is medium hardness so just wondering if any of the 'polishes' etc are better for our paint. I've seen Menzerna, Sonus and the Megs stuff mentioned so wondering what the difference (or is it much of a muchness), and theres a shedload of different pads too (all have confusing different numbers etc).

I was thinking of say the last deal (Sonus) with perhaps a couple of additions like a spot pad (spose need smaller back plate too) for smaller areas. Spose the only other thing I'd buy is the 3m masking tape (or is normal masking tape ok?)

Seems a pretty good deal, think you get 5% off too and also a free LED 'swirl' torch and also a megs detailing brush.

If anyone has any advice I'd be most grateful as I wanna get the nasty looking little swirls off my baby

hi mate .looks to me like number 1 or 2 in your choice .
i used to use one of these kits but with meguires polishes etc etc ,have moved on to a makita polisher now .
you will find these kits very user friendly and youd have to be very dumb indeed to damage your paintwork useing the kestrel DA6.
all in all its a great piece of kit for the beginer and you can get some realy great finishes with these ,you should have no issues with removeing light swirl marks on your car .
just read instructions carefully and follow them and i think youl be glad you purchased the item .
i moved on to the makita machine as its faster and its paid for itself now as have done a few cars for people locally who have paid me to do so .
go for either kit and youl be able to get a nice finish but id go for kit three as you get differant range of polishes.
hope this helps you .
