im not familiar with a porter cable, if thats what ur talking about, but ive used orbital buffers before and they do cause swirls. u wont be able to see it under the shade, but in the sunlight they will be noticeable. They cause you to have those circular swirls and scratches. (the worst) and those circular patterns are more obvious in the sun then having straight pattern swirls. it has to do with the way the sun reflects off your car. thats what ive experienced. ive never used the professional high speed buffers, but those are supposed to buff our the swirls, IF done properly. thats why only professional body shops use them.3rd_collective said:yes i did the cleaning outside but undershade of course
yes i do have some swirls but they were there prior when i took delievery. actually i've effectively decreased the amount of swirls and scratches since then. the meguairs (it's actually #9 polish/swirl remover) is great at doing that and it was applied as instructed (large circular applications). i haven't become a zaino whore as of yet, because i honestly believe carnauba gives darker cars a deeper look, which is my goal.
i'm actually planning on redoing the car again in about a month using 1. paint cleanser/swirl remover (and omg a PC ) 2. Apply polymer sealant (UPP-gives the protection) 3. top with p21s carnauba (gives the depth)
out of curiosity, you mentioned on another thread that a PC would give you scratches and swirls, care to elaborate? I was under the impression when done right you eliminate them as professional detailers do. :dunno:
