    At www.topoftheline.com/porcabpolpac.html, they have a combo pak for $195.95. Is this a good deal, and is this all I need to get started? Any suggestions or opinions would be really appreciated, thanks.

    Take a look in the PC 7424 thread i made recently...i found it for 109...so price out the pads and add it up and see. The pads go for just under $10 each and the Velcro pad holder is @$16.

    One of the reasons i didn't get an all in one kit is because i didn't need or want half the things in them.

    I ordered a few Lake Country pads and pad holder from Juztang (obsessive Detail) on here and also a few bottles of glaze and wax and detail cloths...with what i paid for my 7424 and what Juztang charged me for some LC pads/Pad Holder/Pink Moose combo/Natty Blue wax/and Detail cloths it was cheaper then the Combo you posted.

    Thanks DropTop, I'll check into it. I'm just kind of learning about all of this from here, and don't wanta get screwed. I already have ClearKote's vanilla glaze, red moose glaze, and canuba wax. Now I have to take it to the next step. It's on a lazer red '96, and other threads showed that to be a good formula.

    Sweet, i'd just talk with Justin (Juzstang) and order only what you need. Those kits are great if you are gonna use everything but if you end up just putting the bonnets etc on a shelf then you lose $$$$. Make a list of what you really need and Justin will give you a deal on the LC pads etc just like if you bought a big kit. He took care of me last week and it was my first order with him yet he treated me like a 10 year customer O0 Oh and i had the stuff in 2 days :banana:

    Thanks for the compliments Bob!

    Check out the Porter Cable kit on my site. I have a package that has everything you need to get started. Everything in my kits can be used and you don't have to worry about a bunch of extras that will never get used. I also have Porter Cable kits with polishes included with them too.

    They can be located right here..... http://www.obsessivedetail.com/buffer.html

    Let me know if you have any product questions, I will be glad to help!

    Thanks Justin, I just ordered your $175 PC kit w/ 5" backing plate, and orange, white, and gray pads. Hope that's what I'm looking for to get this going. Can't wait to give it a shot and see the difference.

    Yes that is everything you will need to get going! Do you have any polishes/swirl removers to use with the PC?

    Thank you for your business too O0

    Yeh, I guess I have what I need. I didn't know about you last week. So I bought some ClearKote stuff from a place up the road from me. I have vanilla moose, red moose machine glaze, carnauba moose wax, and a bottle of quick shine. I still want to try Sonus trim & motor kote, for engine compartment. The guy on Autopia says that's the stuff. Thanks

    Ok, I will throw in a free Poorboy's SSR2.5 Medium Swirl Remover and a 4 oz. of Optimum Spray Wax with your order. That will be your SN95 discount. Sound good to you?
