    If your giong to get a machine polisher then get menzerna polish, thats what I use now with my kestrel rotary and get fantastic results..

    Also I've used poorboys ssr2.5 by hand and although it's not amazing I found it better than SRP.. albeit it's far far better when machined on!

    That's the direction I was trying to advise him. It's minefield out there but SRP is readily available and easy to apply by hand, plus its a great product. Colly is easy to apply (as long as you are skinny with the application) and lasts a long time. But 100 people could easily give 100 different combinations. I reckon anyone who hasn't clayed a car has not yet seen a proper shine!.

    I always think that detailing questions are on a par with:-
    What is your favourite food or What is your favourite football team :-) .

    The answers are of course personal preferences and all correct for the person who likes that particular product(s). One thing I have found is that some wax's and polishes are better on dark cars than lighter cars and vice versa. Plain or metalic paints are also different as well as soft and hard top coats.

    The only advice I would suggest is, have a look at this site. A lot of reading there and I am sure most people wouldn't agree with everything but in all the sites I have read, I like this one the best.

    PS Other than buy my products from them, I have no affiliation to them.
