    Mothers "Paint Ball"

    So mother's follow up to the "power ball" polisher is the "paint ball" wich is a luffa-looking thing that you attach to a standard hand-held drill. I'm wondering if this is a good item or not? My fear is that there would be too much concentrated force from the pointy drill as opposed to a wider surface area that a polishing pad would give you.

    Thoughts?

    i agree . . . it doesnt sound like a good item to polish your entire car with . . however, there may be certain areas that it would be benefitial; under our spoilers, in our front nostrols, area like these that are very hard to get to with a standard orbital buffer/polisher. But the quality is prob just as shitty as the original powerball

    I have seen it recently at a few different places. I wouldn't even use it on my '97 Contour if that tells you anything.

    Plus, unless you were using a corded drill, you better have a good supply of drill batteries.

    I stuck a wire wheel in my 19.2v Craftsman drill once to get the rust off the rock rails on my Jeep, and I killed the battery in a matter of minutes. I guess they don't like continuous use like that.

    gotta use a 18v dewalt. . . the battery last forever on them! but yes for extensive use, a corded drill is a lot better, more rpm also.
