Default Choosing the Right Car Polisher

I recently ordered myself the Porter Cable 7424 XP DA Orbital Polisher as well as a Dual Action 5-Inch Flexible Hook & Loop Backing Plate. Research shows this polisher to be the most popular and is easy to learn and use. Prior to this I have done all my polishing and waxing by hand and have basically got sick of the amount of time and effort required to do everything by hand.

For pads, I ordered some of Lake Country's 5.5-Inch CCS foam pads. Lake Country has 9 different style CCS pads, each for a different step in the polishing process from aggressive cutting to very fine polish and glaze applications. I'm went with three of them for myself: orange, white, and blue. The full list of Lake Country CCS pads can be seen at the link below.

Here's a great 2-part video by Autogeek on choosing the right car polisher.

I found all this information extremely helpful when looking for mine so I thought I'd share. I'll update later this spring after I have actually used the equipment on my cars.
