    Yes, that is the right one.

    The pad it comes with is crap. You can get excellent pads at a good price at Excel Detail. http://www.prestostore.com/cgi-bin/store.pl?ref=exceldetail&ct=29307

    I'd get a blue, green and yellow pad to start.

    You also need a backing plate: http://www.prestostore.com/cgi-bin/store.pl?ref=exceldetail&ct=37932

    Without it, you won't have anything to attach the pads to. There are a lot of package deals, etc on Excel or you can contact Patrick to see if he can set you up with a deal on the backing plate and blue, green and yellow pads.

    thank you scott, as always!

    btw, someone keyed my brand new car today... I can feel it with my fingernail but it seems to me to be more of marrring on the clear coat. I should be able to take that out with dacp and the 7424 right?
