    Are you completely working the product into the paint?

    Are those after pics?

    You are going to have a real hard time getting swirls like that out by hand, so either you need to get a Porter Cable 7424 and the proper pads (really no learning curve) or a rotary (Makita makes some good ones) and learn to use it properly on a few old fenders before trying it on the Rover.

    Who does he need to get the porter cable? There are plenty of other equal or better quality oribital etc polisers out there?

    Name them.

    He doesn't need to get anything if he doesn't want to. The Porter-Cable is a very reliable, compact and affordable DA buffer.

    :werd: It's the best I've found. My dad is a mechanical contractor and he uses PC tools all the time.

    Dewalt and others make great products.. You guys seem to be very bias in your product choices. Im not saying they are bad because most of them are very good..but there are also other very good products out there. You guys need to try a wide selection of tools and product..not just follow the bandwagon.

    If you know anything about this forum, you'll know that we're the farthest thing from "following the bandwagon."

    Take a look around, if there is a bandwagon EVERYONE is on it. Everyplace I have looked seems to think the PC7424 is the best at doing the job and the low price was a bonus.

    From a Ford 150 forum to Lexus to Corvette etc...

    Just a few
