    Porter cable pads...

    Where in the UK can you get pads for the porter cable 7424 and how much are they? Are the meg's ones the same size?

    ...if so...is it worth forking out an extra $80 to get this

    cheers guys

    thats good to know...won't be forking out getting "special fitment" pads shipped over

    so is it worth $80 (£40) extra and buying the bundle that includes :

    1 x 6.5”Orange Light Cutting Pad
    2 x 6.5” White Polishing Pads
    3 x 6.5” Gray Finishing Pads
    2 x Microfiber Detailing Towels
    1 x Packet of Snappy Clean

    ?

    In the UK you will prob pay around £60- 70 for that lot but there is two things to consider.

    1. I would only buy from Autopia due to the great service and they help with the import tax, that you will have to pay from another seller that imports to the uk.

    2. I bought loads of pads with mine when i bought it and found i didnt get on with them. Then you have the hassle of selling them. I would reccomend buying a base kit and then trying different pads and sizes.

    Have a look on www.detailingworld.co.uk there is a great impoting guide for the PC.

    Hope that helps.

    thing is my dad is in america and coming back in 4 weeks...so he should be able to get it through with his lugguage no problems...(already bought over laptops and other stuff, no tax)

    think i'll go for the base kit then...and buy the pads elsewhere...that seller might be providing cheapo pads for all i know
