Meguiars DA Power System

At Opies, we stock a wide range of Meguiars cleaning and detailing products, all of which are designed to fulfil a specific job to the highest possible standard.

They are a household name with a rich heritage in the detailing world. In 1901, Farnk Meguiar Jr created his first bottle of polish with the help of his family, an eggbeater and a tin bath. Initially, this was a furniture polish which he made to fulfil orders for the following morning to pay for the days groceries. It wasn’t until about a decade later in the 1910s and the rise of the automobile that he spotted that their bodywork was coated with the same finishes that were applied to furniture. An obvious transition soon followed leading to a long-standing relationship in the automotive industry.

At the pinnacle of their professional range is the Meguiars DA Power System. This dual Action machine polishing has long been the professional detailer’s secret weapon. For years, it’s remained the fastest, most effective way to compound, polish and wax your car, truck or boat. That’s great if you can justify the outlay on a professional style tool, but Meguiar’s have recognised a growing trend for vehicle owners themselves wanting to achieve a professional level of finish.
