    Very cool. Would be even cooler if you posted step-by-step pictures when you go to detail your car :)

    Cool. I got my 6" Griot's orbital as well. Just recently ordered the unercarriage spary, paint clay, speed shine, machine polish 3, best of show wax, cloths - should be a lot of fun. I'm thinking of getting the glass polish stuff to top of the collection. Never used Griot's stuff before, but from what I read should be pretty good! Enjoy your items!

    Well, I can tell you that after 9 straight hours and a VERY sore back that Corvette C6 clear coat is ****ing hard as nails. I had to really lay into this buffer at full speed with an orange pad to get any decent correction. It took several passes but I got 85% of the scratches out. It looks like a mirror. I still have to finish up with the Menzerna polish. I'm wiped out.

    The buffer is very powerful but I would recommend a rotary on a Vette.

    Will post some pics later of the before and afters.
