Hi guys I can't seem to find anything on here about polishing our cars so thought I'd start a thread as I'd imagine there will be a lot of people like me out there who are worried about using a high powered machine on their pride and joy.
I've been mulling over the idea of buying a rotary polisher (Amazon £50) but I wouldn't have the slightest idea what to do when it arrived at my front door. There are so many different style polishes and waxes and dozens of different buffing heads and I wouldn't know where to begin. I've been researching it for weeks but seem to be getting conflicting information. Has anyone attempted to polish their car using one of these machines and have you had the desired finish or has it left your pride and joy covered in the dreaded swirl marks?
I'm kind of thinking that I might just forget the whole idea and take it to a professional to have it done. Let's face it, he/she would be able to do it in half the time I would and they would hopefully end up with much fewer swirl marks but on the other hand for the price I'd pay someone else I could probably buy half the stuff I need to do it myself!
What I'm basically asking here is... is it worth attempting yourself or should i leave it well alone and let the experts do their thing?
