    Getting my Inventory right

    Hey guys!
    Needed some recommendations here. I've finally found the place to get Meguiar's product and below are my choices that I've picked:



    1. Meguiar's DA Polisher 220V2 (my christmas present for myself)
    2. Three 2.0 soft buff 7" DA waxing/finishing and One DA compounding/cutting pad
    3. Meguiar's Water Magnet Drying Towel
    4. Meguiar's Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel Pack of 3
    5. Meguiar's Microfiber Wash Mitt
    6. Meguiar's Smooth Surface Clay Kit
    7. Meguiars Ultimate Compound G17216
    8. Meguiars Ultimate Liquid Wax G18216
    9. Meguiars Ultimate Polish G19216
    10. 5" Hand polishing/waxing applicator (with 3 Velcro-backed applicator pads)
    11. Meguiars Foam Applicator Pad Pack of 4
    12. Two 2.0 Finishing pad

    I'm thinking of getting a few more pads and smaller backing pads if budget allows and at the mean time will be using hand on those smaller sections of the pillars. Am I missing something else? Suggestion widely accepted. Before this car I'm used to proper hand techniques and have no issue, just wrong procedure on products as soft99 are mostly in Japanese.

    What I'm trying to achieve is to remove most if not all of the swirl marks as well as 4 trails of tree sap markings from the white paint. I can't really stand it knowing that it was there. Unfortunately its impossible for me to get the Professional Series in my country, so far only consumer line of products. Even NXT are hard to come by.

    So far it looks good. Good choice to go with the ultimate line: Ultimate Compound/Polish/Wax. Meguiar's does not recommend to use burgundy foam cutting pads with G110/220 dual action polishers mostly due to possible intense micro-marring and heat build up during long high speed buffing cycles. The new foam cutting discs (new product for 2015) can be used with those polishers. In most cases yellow polishing pads will remove majority of paint defects. Don't forget interior, exterior, glass and tire products. Quik Interior Detailer Cleaner, Ultimate Black/Protectant, Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner and Endurance Tire Gel are my favorite.

    If Ultimate Line is is great stuff. Looks like you have a good start. I can't make a good recommendation on the pads for your DA because I use a different brand and I am still somewhat new to DA use myself, but I will tell you that you car will look awesome and you will get those swirls out for sure with the DA. So, someone else will probably chime in on the DA. The only other thing I might recommend you pick up if you can is some quick detailer/quick wax for maintenance. Also, the clay is fine, but if you haven't heard of the Nanoskin Autoscruber, Google it. I just started using it by the recommendation of another member here and I won't go back to clay. Much easier and quicker than clay, and if you can order from eBay, they can be had for around $30. Be sure to post some pictures and good luck.

    Oh the burgundy pad is part of free product by the seller. Sadly I can't have access to all if not most interior detailing product. So I'm stuck with soft 99 interior detailing products for the moment while I source for a wider range seller.

    But I've add on the convertible vinyl cleaner and protector to the list. As for the nano scrubber I'll be sure to have a look and see how I can get it from ebay.

    Thanks for the chime in guys. Will wait a lil more before I started buying all those in the list. Since now I'm building up the list and going to purchase them one off so I'm not short of anything while halfway detailing.

    I would add a pad cleaning brush
    And get urself 5 of the yellow polishing Soft buff 2.0 pads, and 4 of the black finishing soft buff 2.0 pads. U will need a few pads of each just to do 1 car as u have to switch them out after while.

    I would also get rid of the hand application tool and spend that money somewhere else such as more pads or a set of the 4" pads.

    Don't go with the pads, go with the new discs,look under the 2015 products, those are the way to go. But everything else looks great!

    Do yourself another favor and look into their NEW DA Polisher MT300. They recently announced it at this year's SEMA and ready to ship by end of this month at most sites.

    Take a look at it and make a decision of which best suits you, the 220V2 vs MT300. You have options..! You can look at previous posts for reviews and video demos

    Too bad, at my place it seems it would need another year or two before the MT300 drop by. Am taking the advice of adding in a few more foam pads and have written it down. Cutting of the hand applicators pad since I still have about 5 of em.

    So I'll be taking the 220v2 DA it seems, hope to learn more here in MOL!

    Check out autogeek.net detailing.com, they have it online for pre-order and tentatively shipping late this month.

    Regardless, you're making a great decision going with either Meguairs machine. You'll be very happy!

    I suggested the pads cuz it doesn't look like he's in the us and I don't know when that will hit his market. Along with the new da as I thought the 220 version will b awhile out as well. If it is the yes the new 2015 is the way to go but I think they are a way off overseas before seeing these new products. But still the 220v2 is still a good machine but if u want to wait awhile before buying then yes the new da would b nice.
