    Ok i'm still not setup to go yet, but as iv'e walked past cars i've been drawing up a mental image on how i'd detail them.

    What about hard to reach places with a standard pad size, little recesses that many cars seem to have around the number plates or bodykits etc...

    Do we hand finish them or buy 2 - 3" pads for our polishers?

    waxing hard to reach areas can be done by hand (fnar fnar!!!)
    some waxes are only supposed to be applied by hand to keep them warm and then just buffed with a microfibre towel

    Depends on whether you are protecting or correcting. If you are just applying paint cleaners and waxes then by hand is fine. However, if you have full on correction to do then spot pads on the machine are sometimes required, as there is only so much you can do by hand. :)
