Oh good, you're familiar with Soft99 products...was going to suggest as its VERY good, but just more expensive.

Then easy solution...don't wax!

There is a spray sealant twin set from ArtDeShine also sold at Autobacs. First spray on sealant, wipe off, the spray on hydrophobic water repellant, wipe off. Easier than eating rice biggrin.gif

Yes, I would render them useless for attempting paint correction, that is to level the clear and remove scratches.

Although, you can use them to lightly polish and bring back some gloss or to apply glazes and fill in scratches with a finishing pad.

Can't do much more as when you apply a bit of pressure, they will stop orbiting which prevents them from doing anything useful but spreading product around

Yo bro David..

Agreed with Vivantt511..unless you are looking to do some correction then forget about those ciggi type..this are fine with wax or sealant application or maybe a white polishing pad with an AIO..remember to use the correct pads for different products.

Alternatively..you can get an ac converter or a small generator for a DA..You might wana check with HDB for the electrical supply..Some folks told me you could rent it.

The 12v polishers are only good enough for application of wax/sealant.

If you actually need to do some paint corrections like swirlmarks and light scratches. They will not be good enough.

If you have not had any experience with a buffer before.

I do suggest using a Dual Action polisher as they are rather easy to use and nothing too drastic will happen even if you make a mistake.

A Rotary will probably be much more efficient under a trained hand but done wrongly. The holograms or even paint peel will occur.
