    I need to buy a Porter Cable, Mitts, OTR no rinse. After that it all goes to supplies. I have a ridiculous amount of OTC products, and about 50-60 microfiber towels. Mostly looking for good polishes, glazes, pads, etc, and I want to get it all from one site. Also need to remember all the little stuff. Looking to stay under $500.

    That's where I've been looking. I've been tempted to go with the Menzerna Maximum Shine PC Kit. It's also tempting not to though after all the good things I've heard about Meguiar's #105, as well as it not coming with the Super Intensive Polish.

    This is my idea now.

    -Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine
    -Meguiars Mirror Glaze #105 Ultra-Cut Compound
    -Cobra Guzzler HD Waffle Weave Drying Towel
    -2-in-1 Wash Mitt
    -Menzerna Top Inspection
    -Menzerna Finishing Glaze PO 115C
    -Porter Cable 7424 & Pad Kit with CCS pads!
    -Menzerna Sealing Wax APO 60

    You might want to look into the Flex 3401. Much more powerful than a PC but still less learning curve than a rotary. Yeah, it is a lot more expensive but it will save you a bunch of time.

    Cut the polishes down to:

    Meguiars #105
    Optimum Compound
    Optimum Polish or Meguiars #80 Speed Glaze/#82 Swirl Free Polish
    (above ranked in order of aggressiveness)

    You don't need the guzzler with ONR. Go to Target and get a couple packs of the orange Vroom MFs to use for ONR washes.

    Clearkote Carnauba Moose and/or Optimum Opti-Seal for your LSP's.

    Meguiars 8006 yellow polishing pads work great, maybe 1 or 2 orange cutting pads (Lake Country has good ones) and a couple finishing pads too (Meguiars or LC0.
