  1. New buffer

    Car Care RSX
    Well, I went overboard and bought a nice buffer. It's an ATD-10511 7 inch polisher. I also bought some really good 3M wax - one for taking out swirl marks and one called 'Ultrafine', along with the correct buffing attachments for each. I now have a new respect for bodywork professionals...

  5. Considering a cheap buffer

    Car Care RSX
    Base on my criteria you think this should be fine? I don't want to spend $150 (PC). I don't want to tire my hands out. I want something portable. Remove some light scratches. Car doesn't have to look show room. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00911597000P
