    i work up at chevy in the detail department and they put all the new guys on the orbital....as it is the beasiest and safiest to use


    the experienced guys use the high speed....


    i dont see how the orbital could reall hurt...as it moves just like your hand and not MUCH faster

    I would think you would have to stay in one spot for a very very long time to mess up the paint with an orbital, now with the high speed you can easily burn through the clear coat if you dont know what your doing. I'd use polish before you wax, it will take off the previous coat of wax and some other contaniments before you seal it with a wax. Also reccomend useing a clay bar after the polish. You dont need to polish everytime you wax though as long as you keep a good coat of wax on it. Just my opinion...

    Claying is the first step.
