    My paint has a bunch of swirls etc which I am looking to tidy up (similar to that Porsche just more of em)

    I am pretty comfortable with the polishes I need to buy but for some reason confused with which pads I need, Can I just use the pad that is supplied with the polisher, or do I need to buy more? Anything suitable that anybody can recommend?
    might as well just buy this kit. (first one for $379) https://www.waxit.com.au/collections...-machines-kits

    by the time you buy the Rockwell, 2 or 3 bottles of decent compound (depending how bad the paint is) which are over 70 bucks for 3m and pads itll be about $300 and all you have is a shitty Rockwell polisher.

          the scholl stuff is pretty good too, I saw a black GTS monaro that was polished with scholl and it was perfect. bloke used the 15mm shine mate polisher also.

                    yeah that's great value. 3m , farecla and menzerna stuff is $70+ a bottle and you use fuck all really. I have a 1L bottle of 3m polish that ive had for about 3 years and done 4 cars. still have over half a bottle left

                      So nopics wants to get me something for Xmas, and I've been thinking about one of these detailing kits for a while.
                      Not really interested in doing serious cutting or correction, and UTTERLY paranoid about harming the paint on my cars.
                      I tried using one of those circular buffers like this:
                      about 5 years ago and made the bonnet of my Soarer into a swirling mess.
                      Mostly, I'm too time poor/lazy to polish by hand and want to make it easier to throw some wax on the cars every 6 months or so.
                      Am I aiming too high with any of these kits?

                            Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                              Cant really do much damage with a DA unless you are really trying or really really fucking stupid as TT has mentioned.
