    having been 'detailing' for a number of years, and always seem to be working on 'hard' paints like Audi, BMW etc...

    My choice wouldn't be a DA machine, nor Poorboys polishes...

    it all depends on how serious you want to get, how much time you have and how bad your paint it...

    for me though, rotary machine - they are not as dangerous as some people make out, you do really need to be a muppet to cause damage.... and I've found Scholl is my goto polishes.... Megs are good too....

    :thumbsup:
