    Electric Polishing Kit

    Afternoon people

    Im after electric polishing kit with pads for my car. Being black, swirl makrs show up like hell in this sun at the moment!

    If anybody can recommend kits they have used in the past or currently using any, all help would be much appreciated.

    Looking getting the swirls out and getting top notch again

    Thanks

    Iain

    Looks very good. This would work well with pretty much any time of polish then? or certain ones?

    But sort my budget this month then lol!

    any polish. 3m or megs are good polishes as well

    sonus can give good finshes just takes a little longer as they are not very abrasive.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
