Okay. This is my opinions. Take it as you will. Backing plate-

Get the 5" backing plate. Not the 6". 5" is better correcting for the PC.
Pads-
http://www.detailersdomain.com/5-Pac...nch_p_297.html
In that kit, get 2 yellow pads, 2 Green pads, and 1 black pad. You'll thank me later for the two pads of those colors.
Polishes and Compounds- You can go OTC with Meg's Ultimate Polish and Ultimate Compound, but they won't get your car perfect. They will get it pretty darn near though. If you want to reach perfection, you should go for these 2 products here. http://www.detailersdomain.com/Menze...int_p_218.html
http://www.detailersdomain.com/Menze...int_p_134.html
Now that you have your paint corrected properly, you're gonna want to seal it in with a good wax or sealant. If you're wanting to order from the same place, I would go with this.

So either way, Adam's prices aren't that bad when you look at what you get. Have I used their polishes and sealant? No. I have their Fine Machine Polish and Machine Super Sealant that I will be using very soon as soon as the pads get here. I have used what I have offered you and they are a great combo, but they too are expensive.

Thanks! It's getting closer and closer to being time to open it. May 4th is my last day for exams. I can't wait.
