Or least attempt to anyways. I normally No rinse wash in the winter or old school 2 bucket method. Every year i normally pay $150 a quick detail shop for a quick "buff job". Buff job is normally wash, clay and one or two layers of w/e wax. Overall i'm happy with the job, they get it done in 8-12 hours. I'm not super picky on the paint, just as long as its smooth and look decent. My car is a daily driver and street parked so fender benders/door dings and other randoms will happen. So learning about what DA polisher to use and how many pads and products are on top of list. I want to spend about $200-300 total because i might do this once and say forget. I dont have problems using that HF polisher but the groits garage also looks like a good deal as well as the entry level standard 7424xp. Knowing and understanding this is BITOG and we all aim for overkill when it comes to our cars. I'm looking for a good list of basic supplies and pads that i should need to start my adventure. I'll add on down the road if i like this but right now i want to focus on exterior and only simple stuff. I dont understand the color and sizings of pads, backing plates and etc. Nor do i understand CUT/polish and etc.
