Last fall my mechanic asked me what to use on his car (a black Toyota Avalon). I'd seen the car and it was full of minor scratches and swirl marks. I told him he'd need a machine because it was beyond hand polishing. I recommended the Porter Cable so he bought a kit from Autopia. He said the car came out like new (I haven't seen it since he did it). Yesterday I mentioned that I had a couple of scratches on the roof of the 300 so he pulls out his kit from behind the counter and hands it to me to take home and try. I've tried polishing out these scratches by hand with no luck. I have the proper polish (Sonus 3 step) but lacked the machine. Well holy cow, 5 minutes with the Porter Cable and my polish and the scratches were gone. I'm hooked, I just ordered a complete kit. Comes with the Porter Cable random orbital machine, Five 6" pads of my choice (different color pad for amount of cut or just polishing and waxing), pad cleaner and conditioner, a couple of polishing cloths. I also ordered a couple of spot pads (4" just for doing small areas like a scratch). You can also use the smaller pads for headlights, tail lights. Again you have your choice of colors for amount of cut. The whole kit was on sale plus they gave me the first 5 pads for free. I can't wait to try it on my truck which is dark red and has lots of fine swirl marks on it from the winter.
