Wax and buff with power buffer

Anyone else trust an electric buffer on their baby? Must say I was hesitant, but wow she is shining.

Looks really good. I need a good wheel job on mine. But I'll settle for a hand waxing

Sometimes that is the only way to get the swirl marks out...

I only use my adjustable Porter Cable D/A buffer I got with the Adam's detail kit and only use the stuff that was in the kit. It took very good care of my black Trailblazer SS, so yellow is very easy to deal with now.

Using proper pads, compounds, polishes, LSP (waxes, sealants or whatever you prefer) and technique, using a machine application will always give you a better end result.

Hand power will never fail you When you start to see swirls and scratches.. thats when the Porter Cable is worth it's weight in gold.. That stuff you HAVE to machine out

Definately look at using the Porter cable from adamspolishes.com. But be warned, once you spend a buck on Adams....the spending will never stop!

BTW - Adams is now the OFFICIALLY licensed GM car care products of vetts and Camaros!

Porter Cable 7424xp Works like a charm and is very safe. I'll never go back to polishing by hand. You just can't get the results you can with a PC.
