    Awesome

    I have the Porter Cable DA, Flex 3401 & 3403 rotary. Started out with the PC and it corrected medium hardness paints ok, but any of the newer stuff it just wouldn't touch. I use the Flex 3401 VRG the most. It's easy to use, has great power, but does build some heat like a rotary. I too am looking for a new polisher, most likely the Griots Boss or Rupes MkII but a little spendy...

    I've got another question: How many pads would I need to get and how many of each color? say you can use a black pad for jet seal and wax would I need 4 black pads. Is there a one type of pad that works better for applying a product then from another one ? lake county pads hex logic and ....

    I've decided on the torq 10fx polisher kit to get started and a blue pad for glaze. What eles do I need to get and how do you guys store your polishers?

    Remember you need multiple pads of the same color. They fill with polish/sealant and must be cleaned after polishing each panel. I use a new pad for each panel when polishing and clean them all when finished. Some people clean one pad after each panel.

    You need grey/black and/or red pads also for wax application.
