Machine polishing is easy and anyone can do it. You’ll be convinced after watching Mike Phillips’ Principles of Machine Polishing. Mike thoroughly explains the what, how, and why of detailing with a polisher by using two popular machines: the Porter Cable 7424XP and the Cyclo. The techniques shown for the Porter Cable 7424XP also apply to the Griot’s Garage Random Orbital Polisher, the Meguiars Dual Action Polish G110v2, and any other orbital polisher.
In addition to how to use the polishers, you’ll learn important steps to guarantee a perfect finish, such as pad selection, how to use the Brinkmann Swirl Finder Spotlight, how and when to perform a test spot, how to perform a section pass, and many more tips they just don’t tell you in the instruction manual!
