    I got myself a rotary polisher and I'm enjoying using it. I fo have to say it ain't as dangerous as people make it out to be. Of course that is only the case if you can firstly understand how the machine works and know limitations.
    Anyway I have been practising with a a panel wool pad and a medium cut polihing compound. Now I would some info on what pads and polishes I should use for removing swirl marks om my bm.
    I'm thinking that I Need
    1. Foam pad medium cut polish and light polish.
    2. Foam pad and some sort of product to remove marring
    3. Foam pad and finishing wax
    4. And some sort of sealing product.

    I'm a beginner so I may have got things wrong. Please advise accordingly.

    Buy a kit of various pads...I just bought some 150mm pads with hook and loop backing plate included. I use Menzerna products but Meguairs Swirl X and Medium Cut Cleaner are worth looking into as well.
