Haro

95SLE would suggest the Porter Cable random orbital buffer. I was accused by mechanic Dan of painting my car recently. We all know it'* far from perfect. The cleaning and Zaino dropped the superb looking deep gloss bomb on the car.

Dan saw the car AFTER it had been rained on. Tom has sent me a pm or two on the Zaino and other products we used. My piggy bank is getting lighter...shine on the car is more than worth it!

Haro:
The Porter Cable Random Orbital Buffer, PC ROB, is the way to go. Pretty much fool proof and easy to use. I will send you a PM with my phone number if you want to talk about all of the hidden costs. I am at work right now but i will respond back later on this evening once I get home.

Lowes has them for $109 and there may be some kind of 10% off internet coupon somewhere. I will look into the coupon availability.
