What are you using on black cars to get rid of light swirls, then for wax.
Yup I use a porter cable as well. Had it for a few years now. I use lake country pads. The trick to the porter cable is to use small pads when your polishing with a compound. It takes a lot longer to polish out paint with a porter cable than it does with a rotary buffer but it is noob friendly.i have three black cars including my Nova
The only solution is to use the right buffer. i got the car back from my painter and it was a mess, i have a freind that loaned me a porter cable 7424Obital random buffer HOLLY SXXX that thing is the bomb it took every swril and made the paint just POP if you buy the basic one its a $ 129.00 don't get crazy with pads. Use a light compound buff then a Glaze buff it is the BEST tool i ever bought. The body shop guys never want to change they hit everything with the big buffer ...
This is so freindly you can't burn any edges this is what most detailers use.
Call these guys they can recommend a good wax
I am going to use this stuff on my car :
If i was closer i would be happy to lend it to you ...read up on it ITS Great
mitts hold dirtBad newsI use only new microfiber towels..everytimeBTW, with the method I posted above, you will get water to bead off your vehicle (as long as you dont use a drive through car wash and use degreaser on the paint) for up to a year. Another great product to keep scratches and swirls from comming back is to use good microfiber cloths or mitts and two buckets of water. You can even use a product called Optimum No Rinse which uses only 2 gallons of water to wash a car and will not leave any scratches or marring. It will leave a gloss/shine when done too.
Heck I should be a salesman for Optimum or something haha. I just love the product. I have tried MANY professional detailing products out there and their stuff just seems to be top of the line with great customer service and on top of technology for the latest detail materials.
