    Med Cut .. Lite cut .. Polish.. Lite polish.. Finish


    Propel----- Orange.. Yellow.. Green....... Blue Grey

    LC Classic-- Yellow.. Orange.. White ...... Black

    LC Hi-Gloss-- Yellow.. Orange.. White.. Black/Rd

    Sonus DAS--- Orange.. Green.. Blue

    Sonus SFX --- White .. Blue

    Meguiars--- Burgandy.. Yellow .. Tan

    Edge 2000--- Black.. Yellow.. Green.. Blue....White


    "Tried" to put together alittle Chart based on another Web site......Hope it helps.

    I believe I posted the "dano" link on the "other" board last Jan 24th
    However, if you look at the autogeek website, it does list the yellow pad as the most aggressive pad. The dano link originated in europe I believe, and there might be some discrepancies on the Edge2000 pads color abrasiveness chart

    I love my PC buffer/polisher. It was easy to use the first time I started with it and it does a great job at removing those fine scratches and swirl marks.

    I agree Goose, I am by no means an expert car detail guy but there wasn't much of a learning curve for me with the PC. Do not use too much product and let the polisher do the work without applying too much pressure on the surface.

    Yea, I just want to make sure I get all the right pads and stuff the first time. They have some cool stuff on there, like the rag/pads that you can use to wax I am guessing... all I really need it for is to take all the swirls out of my TSX from letting them put it in their car wash, and then also a few touch ups on the camaro probably. what package would be the best for me??

    As siggy said, there isn't much of a learning curve when using the PC for the first time. After ten minutes, you're good to go!

    As far as pad goes, just get one othose kits that include pads. At a bare minimum, they will throw in there one of each pad you're going to need. I started with a couple of polishing pads (white) a black pad (finishing) and an orange pad (light cut) then thru trial and error I built up a little arsenal of products that work well with my PC. Remember, the fbody clear coat is very hard, and not just any product will remove some swirls. However, you must exercise patience to achive better results
