    Hi all.
    I'm waiting for my order of DG 601&105 to arrive but was wondering if I should use a paint cleaner before applying 601 to remove several layers of sealants and waxes ,Colinite 845 being the last 3 coats.
    I know #601 is also a cleaner but am not sure if it completely removes Colinite:confused:
    Common sense tells me to use a paint cleaner like Meg.Deep Crystal (step one of the 3 system)to make sure there is no waxes or sealants left on the paint ,what do you think?

    The 601 will take care of the wax...its a good cleaner...I used it over collinite and Klasse before and my pad was it cleaned the paint good.....

    So you are using the 601 by machine, similar to 501 I would assume?

    Hmmm, interesting, very interesting:devil:

    Justin..I use 601 by machine it takes a lot of product....601 is very light creamy stuff....really gets sucked in a PC pad...I just use a megs yellow applicator or a terry pad ...most times when I use 601 its after a polishing or even after a 101 or 501 treatment...but I have used it alone after a polishing with great results....I do things a lot of ways...I evaluate the surface and then make my

    501 I use both machine or by hand..depends on how bad the paint is...

    PS black I meant my hand applicator pad was black from grime it removed....but any hand works fine....thats why you let 601 sit awhile and then leave eats at the old coatings.....

    gotcha!! I had only used 601 by hand also... I figured I would be all ears if you applied by machine!

    I love using 501 by machine, it really sucks an AMAZING amount of pure blackness off the paint... :cheers: thanks for all the DG tips!!

    Yeah I used 501 yesterday and man were my pads black after using it. 501 is one heck of a cleaner.

    Thanks Al.
    So I will go straight to 601 to remove old waxes, saves me time not having to use a paint cleaner before 601.

    well said. #601 will take care of your previous sealant. Best of all, you don't need to remove it. It will vanish.
