that type of buffer doesn't have the power for defect removal. also it has a shorter throw than a porter cable. they are ok for wax application though. otherwise, they just jiggle.


you'd want a buffer like this http://www.porter-cable.com/index.asp?e=547&p=2805 along with the proper pads to efffectively remove defects.

it costs about $100 or so more than the one pictured above, but well worth it. later.

Hey type-g, do you have any problems dealing with the vibrations of the PC?

Is there anyway to prevent the fade on CF parts? My friend said a good sealant and wax would help. Can CF be polished just like normal paint?

you don't get as much vibration from a porter-cable because it's balanced with counter-weight.


some carbon fiber has a clear coat and some of it doesn't. some of it has a gel coat and some is just the bare resin.

a sealant would be a good idea followed with wax. i ususally tell people to clay it a few times a year and use a cleaner wax afterwords. it is also a good idea to follow the manufacturer care instructions. later.

depends on where the water spots are.

if they are on your paint you can usually get then off with a cleaner wax. if that doesn't work you can step up to a good scratch remover, just wax the area afterword. sometimes water can etch the paint and therefore would require the use of a machine and polish for removal.

if they are on your glass you can try a number of cleaning methods to remove them. in order from least agressive to most:
wash with car soap mixture and dry
glass cleaner
vinegar
clay bar
chrome polish
glass polish

i like to try and use the least agressive method first and then work my way up. later.

I didn't know where to post this question , but since you are the master on this stuff, I will give it a shot-
I have a wagon and since the mufflers are curved and hard to replace, I want to get all the brown crap off that I think is rust. I hope some sanding is all I need to do. I don't want to replace it since there is no problem with it at all. what do you suggest?

I have the same problem as DjM Coupe,

I have some really tough water spots but on my window tint.
could i hit it with, soap/water, clay bar and a waxing/polish compound?

TypeG, what do you do to keep your windows so mirror like?

Wait u got water spots on your tinted windows.. inside ur car? hmm if u got that problem make sure use products that do not contain ammonia.. that will mess up ur tint..

but if ur water spotting is on the exterior(which most is).. and ur tint is in the interior (which most is) ... then try some steel wool.. #0000 steel wool.. that should take care of most ur problem(on the outside..dont' take steel wool to ur tint!)... Oh yeh don't take Steel wool to ur rear view mirrors either!

if you really want that mirror finished look (the type G status) .. easiest and cheapest way to do it with out getting a high speed rotary, foam pads, and order some special compound... Go out to ur auto parts store .. Buy urself the mothers polishing ball or cone.. either get some 3M polishing/rubbing compound... headlight restoration compound .. or even Meguairs Step 2 polishing compound. hook up ur polish ball to ur drill, get on some product and have at it.

Not too sure on where I should ask this but the chrome on my front grill is in less than stellar shape. With this being said what is recommended that I use to touch it up and give it the shine and good condition I want it to have?
