I keep them for the bottom half to preserve the pads and areas where the UDM wont fit (below mirrors).

I like the foam ones because they dont absorb as much product and they are cheap

Welcome to the club.

Should we charge at the next NEBF?

J/K

It is fun empowering members to use the tools to get the job done quickly, with less effort and with superior results.

PS you need more polishes for different situations.

here'* my little collection I took pictures of back in March. Not pictured for some reason were by black pads for waxing, and the Porter Cable polisher. I can't believe how much I've spent. I'm a frugal person being of Dutch decent, so I hate to spend a buck. Including the polisher, I figure I've spent around $400 on my new obsession. I should be pretty well done though unless I decide to get a rotary. I just need to add a couple more items to the arsenal.






I've since added the following:
-5.5" orange low profile pads.
-Stoners glass cleaner (I thought the Advance stuff in the picture worked fine, but ended up getting streaks inside the windshield)
-Duragloss 901 soap
-Duragloss Aquawax
-P21S Wheel Cleaner
-Menzerna Super Intensive Polish
-Menzerna Micro Polish
-Schmitt wash mitt
-Wheel mitt
-Wheel brush

IMO, dish soap is one of the worst things you could do to your paint/car. It can (and will) remove the natural oils from the paint and plastic on the outside of the car. IMO a paint cleaner or polish will remove the wax just as efficiently and allow you to have control of where it goes.

Sure why not

more polishes.....what do you think is in the package that is currently on its way?? More polishes and 5" pads of varying agressiveness

foghorn: yeah that would be why I was under your hood wiping it down. Had there been more time I had contemplated doing your whole car because I would love to see that color all shined up.

grimm: genaric glass cleaner???
Have you used the sonus ulta fine clay before?
