    I have a $50 GC to Amazon.com and they have the PC's in there.

    I am thinking about the 7424 (Do I need to purchase a counter weight?)?

    Anyways, the car I want to detail is a 2008 Ford Focus. Black.

    So far my shopping list:

    - PC 7424 from Amazon.com $125
    - Scratch X (already have it)

    I do need a bunch of stuff, so please help me add accesories that I need for the PC. Also if you know of any place cheaper, let me know

    I just made a similar thread, and I'm hoping to buy most of the stuff from Amazon. I'll check back on this one hoping between our two threads we can get some good feedback. I'm totally lost here despite all the helpful info :p

    Agreed. Can't go wrong with Optimum, very user friendly, no dusting.

    Isn't Optimum a brand? I am asking because I don't see any "Optimum" products included in that bundle.

    I am just curious why is that one the better choice?

    btw; I found the 7424 brand new shipped on ebay for $108 would it be cheaper to buy it off there and buy individually everything else from someone else?

    because optimum products are very easy to use with great results.

    why don't you price all the pads out between autogeek and Top of the Line and see which one is cheaper? honestly, it's been a while since I purchased pads, so i don't know the prices right now.

    I believe autogeek has a PC/Optimum bundle.
