    I like the Lake Country pads...thats what the detail guys at my Last Dealership used so i went on there suggestion. I asked about the Edge2K pads and they had a few split on them and the plastic came through the middle and that can't happen when your detailing a Rolls :eek: so they use LC. Thats where i tried out the PC...i would hang in the detail shop on my break and play with the toys.

    I just picked up some ClearKote White & Red from Juzstang along with the Natty Blue so i'll do a polish & wax over the weekend.

    i got the edge 2k pads... they are kind of spendy but they are nice. if i need anymore pads ill pry just go with hook and loop type like lc etc.

    speaking of which i got to get my ass outside to wash the stang and start claybarring it. Its going to be a long weekend of detailing O0

    Clean the sucker up Meangreen.
    I want to clean up mine but it's all rainy :(


    Bob, that's interesting. I think they're garantee'd not to come apart.
    I've been really happy with mine. they just save time.
    I also have the pinnical pad conditioner and cleaner. spray it on every so often when waxing, then spray the cleaner when done.
    hose it off and the buildup comes right out. spin it on the PC to remove water. air dry and ready for more.
    Either way. polished is polished.

    Let me know how you like the Clear Koat stuff

    lucky i got to it when i did. i looked outside and it was getting dark and it started thundering so i got my ass outside and got it washed. I pulled it in the garage to dry it off and about 2 min later it started raining. Now i just got to clay bar, polish, glaze, wax it etc. ;D Im just glad i have a pc :)

    Lol, I can't tell if you are being serious... It sounded in your first post like you thought the PC was only for waxing. Sorry for the mixup. :)

    So i'm lazy and didn't detail this weekend :hammer:

    Actually it was cold (@ 60) and i wasn't sure how this ClearKote and Poorboys stuff works in cooler temps so i did yardwork instead. Its gonna be in the upper 70's tomorrow and Weds so then i'll do it.
