ORBITAL WAXER/POLISHER
Just purchased an orbital polisher/waxer for my baby (not my chick but my Celica). Problem is, I have never used one before...anyone experienced with one??? Let me know.

they work really good but make sure everytime yuou use it you have a fresh pad on the buffer nad don't set it down pad side down. If you get any and i mean nay dirt on you buffer you will scratch the shit outta yoru car.

if you know what your doing..a wax/buff job done by hand will always look better than an orbital waxer & buffer...these machines are basically for ease of use..their not necessarily better as far as looks are concerned.

I apply the wax with the buffer, then go over any spots I missed by hand. Then I remove the excess by hand and use the buffer at the very end to get a nice even buff polish. I think using the buffer at the very end gives it a more uniform polish smile
