Nice deal. I was going to buy one a few months back but realized I'd only use it maybe once or twice a year. Waxing, I've found, is best done by hand. The few areas I've needed to polish turned out fine with a soft towel and some elbow grease. Thus, that $200 turned into another track day!

Depends on what pad you are using and how much pressure you are applying. It's an art!

This is the key, pad and degree of polish plus pressure and speed all control the outcome.

yah, i only use one density pad for polishing and use 3 different polishes, different speeds, different pressure. works great for me. i like having a constant in the mix so i decided my pad stays consistent.

for waxing i use a soft pad.

It's very hard to hurt the paint with a DA polisher. Even with a orange pad and some extreme abrasive products. Now its using a rotary when you have to be careful. I've been using my PC for almost 8 years now. Still works perfect! It's paid for itself many times over!

Yep, I've seen inexperienced/careless rotary operators destroy paint!
