    I'm back! and need advice on a buffer

    Well, it's been awhile since I've visited this forum. I've been a slacker with detailing over the last few years and seeing my car look like absolute shit from this pollen and hot-ass sun has kicked my ass into gear.

    I don't have the same amount of time that I used to for polishing, so I'm considering a RO buffer. This is what I'm planning on getting:

    I'm pretty much set on the uses of the different pads. I'll use the ScratchBuster pad with DAC/P, SwirlBuster Pad for Swirl Free Polish, polishing pad with Vanilla Moose, and the wax & finish pad with #16/Carnauba Moose.

    Can I use the included microfiber bonnets to remove polishes and waxes, or should I still remove them by hand? Is there anything else I need to know before using a polisher, or is it pretty straightforward?

    After further reading, it appears that PC is coming out with a newer DA that's apparently better, I'm not sure what to do now. :sad2:

    I can remove polish by hand a lot faster than I can with an MF bonnet and a buffer.

    Read through the machine polishing forum on http://autopia.org tons of good information there.
