    Dry
    Clay
    Meg's #83 with light cutting orange pad
    Megs #80 with Polishing pad
    P21's on by hand, off with PC.

    Errr... Yes thats the fellow, problem is its an American tool, therefore needs a 110v Transformer to operate, but It don't burn the paint and thats guaranteed.. Then you buy Sonus Polishing Bonnets and Hey Presto! Ultimate Mirror Finish and no Swirls....

    Re: Anyone got a Porter Cable?

    You won't regret it bud... the biggest problem I had was finding enough time to do it all properly. If you have a garage with plenty of space you're laughing! Otherwise you might be better off waiting til spring when it's a bit warmer with more hours of daylight [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    If I was you though, I'd put the wax on with the PC then remove it by hand. I found removing residue with the PC a pain in the arse.

    And if you're going to do it all at this time of year, I'd put a layer of synthetic wax under the P21S... something like the Megs NXT stuff... if much more resistant to the elements.

    Good luck! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
