Thanks for the tip. is there any danger of doing damage to the paintwork with the kit you suggest?

There is always an element when using machinery on paintwork, a lot less risk with a random orbital like in the link oppossed to a rotary.

An orbital spins on a random axis so the heat generated isn't fixed in one spot, a rotary spins in one spot so heat is generated quicker.

as long as a bit of common sense is used then you shouldn't have any problems with the random action, best to familiarise yourself and practice first on a scrap panel.:thumbsup

No problem mate and thanks, A resprayed car will not effect you detailing it, just means it will have more paint than standard, as long as the bodyshop did it's prepping well then there should be no issues with the finish.
Are you machine polishing? if so then just treat it with the same care as you would a panel with normal paint readings.:thumbsup
