    Default 3000 grit on a DA?

    Anyone use these? Recommendations, instructions? Do they work well? Worth buying...they are pricey?

    I have used the 3000 grit, but if you don't do every step perfect, they don't work at all.
    You can still end up with previous scratches.

    I like starting with 800 grit (3M purple paper), then 1000 grit dry, 1000 grit wet DA, then a quick 1500 wetsand.
    Then I use a white wool pad to start with.
    It's a weird system but I have it so I can do it quickly and efficient. I have it down packed.
    I can normally have a car ready to buff in about 2.5-3 hours.

    Aston_refect.jpgNot so unusual, Taz! I had already done the car in 800, then 1000, and 1500, all wet. Just wanted to try the 3000 TriZack and see if it really helps. It did! Made buffing a lot easier. Thanks for the advice.
