    Lake country pads work great,

    Yellow = medium cutting (for use with rubbing compound)
    Orange = Light cutting (for polishing swirls and scratches)
    White = polishing (light swirls)
    Black = finishing
    Blue = Final Finishing (wax application or sealant)

    tropi-care has the pads for a good price as with anything you need to buff with (menzerna intensive polish is awesome with orange pad)

    I sold the black car and now have a Silver Metallic GTO. It doesnt show any swirls or marks hardly at all because of the color. So which pads would be best for upkeep? White - Black and then blue? Its has a couple of marks that you cant feel with your fingernail, just see.
