Porter Cable and pinnacle

Well, I've always been a "hands on" kinda guy when it comes to detailing my vehicles. Have had geat success using the collonite products over the years. But seeing that i drive a bigass black truck, and it takes a hell of a long time, i finally decided to take the next logical step in car care. I've ordered the PC7424Xp from autogeek, with the pinnacle show car kit. Comes with all the pads, and all the waxes, shipped s just over 3 bills. They have some great sales on right now, saved like 95 bucks compared to the regular price for the kit. I should have some before and after pics in the next couple weeks, expeting some big results!

I use a rotary buffer on my old volvo wagon, haven't dared using the Makita on the truck yet. With just one deep cut compound, a light polish, and a wax, the thing looks almost new again save for all the paint defects no detailing will remove.

If I bought again I'd probably get the Porter Cable or some other Dual Action polisher and then maybe I'd use it on the truck, eventually!

I've only used the simoniz buffer from CT. it speeds up the process. still very time consuming though..

haven't got my hands on a real polisher though.. kinda intimidating to be honest..
Also time consuming. lol

I took the plunge this summer and used the Porter Cable on my 8 year old beater. Started with clay and then fired up the Porter Cable. Big difference but be prepared to spend lots of hours.

Such is life. Just passing through.

I would go with the regular pads instead of the CCS ones.

I paid 50$ for shipping, and 30 for duty. Even with the extra charges no canadian detailing site can come close to autogeek.net . Been buying from them for years .
