    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.... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/fuck_you.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile_smoking.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif

    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    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! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
