Am I seeing things right? Scott's using a PC now?

    I haven't been on here or Autopia for quite some time, just got moved in and situated in a new place.

    Forgive me if I'm behind the times Scott, but when did you try your hand at the PC...and do you like it better than doing it by hand?

    I've been using a PC since early April. Newer paints are a lot harder than when I first started detailing professionally and it was taking too long to remove defects by hand. I prefer the PC for polishing but still usually wax by hand, except for NXT which works best by machine.

    I haven't looked around enough to see any of your latest cars, but are you getting better results now that you're using the PC?

    A 44' coach, aka a bus.

    dadams312-I feel I can polish more deeply and evenly in less time. I can also remove more serious defects but I am still contemplating purchasing a Cyclo for heavy duty work.

    Scott,
    No intent on getting a rotary? I'm just curous as to why you are favoring a decision on the Cyclo. I'm looking into adding a more powerful machine to my detailing arsenal and I'm unsure if I'm going to get a rotary or Cyclo.

    I feel the Cyclo is a safer buffer, but still with more cutting power than a rotary. I don't do a lot of cars with major defects but a Cyclo will make swirl removal easier than a PC.

    thanks for the info Scott. I've got my eye on purchasing a new buffer this winter and getting used to it before the detailing season opens up again.
