    seeing that you recomend the G220

    what sort of pads and polish would be good to use to get the results im looking for

    thanks for your replys guys
    I personally use Sonus SFX pads, from SFX-1 (Hard Cut) to SFX-4 (Finishing)

    Thanks for the compliment bud! looking at the Pictures makes me laugh... The car looks really different to that now!

    Whereabouts in Essex are you located mate?

    I work in Brentwood, so if your near there I can pop down with my polisher and kit and do a panel and show you how etc if you are near?

    I'd go for a rotary, does the job alot easier and you can't really mess up unless your speed is really high and your moving too slow.

    The rotary is only slightly more riskier than a DA.

    Sorry mate, I'd disagree completely, realistically it takes about 5-seconds on the same spot for the pad on a rotary to heat up and burn through the paint, and as a beginner it is very easy to get distracted and stay on the same spot. A rotary is quicker and safe with experience, but my sisters boyfriends mate went through his paint when using a rotary for the first time that he'd borrowed off a friend... I know because after the respray I had to detail it for him because he was scared to touch it

    DA may take a bit longer but its much safer imho

    Whatever works out best for you Ahmet, I'm just letting the OP know that rotarys aren't bad as people make them out to be I've been using a rotary since day 1 and with the right pad and compund you get excellent results really quick.

    Sorry Sam, I just realised I wrote that quite rudely, I agree that people should use what they like, but I just like to advise the safer option, which you must agree the DA is whether by a little or a lot. I just wouldn't want anyone to damage their pride and joy, the same as you. And fair play mate, if you get good results quickly all the better
