    Re: Griot's Garage G15/G21 Long-Throw Orbital Polisher *Ground-Up Redesign*

    My payment had expired as it had been so long since I placed the order, but I called them and gave them new payment info... My G15 should be in the mail!

    My G15 arrived today!

    I unboxed it, and wiped it down well with alcohol to attempt to reduce the risk of any Covid. It will sit in my garage to “air out” until I need to use it on Tuesday when I have an E46 M3 detail for a buddy scheduled to show up.

    Nice! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

    I ordered mine this weekend, can't wait to try it out in my car in a couple weeks and have a neighbors SUV queued up for some time in Oct. Looking forward to it speeding up my work.

    Hey, can you please reply here with some kind of review, Im wondering how the new backing plate responds also to see if the complaints about the high heat with the g21 are present on the 15

    The car arrives this afternoon.

    I’ll have time to decon, wash and hopefully start a polish tomorrow...

    I can hopefully give some initial impressions tomorrow.

    Re: Griot's Garage G15/G21 Long-Throw Orbital Polisher *Ground-Up Redesign*

    Sorry about the news 2W.

    Here are some initial impressions on the G15.

    I only had time today for a test drive on a BMW trunk. The trunk was in average shape. I hit it with Menzerna 2500 and a yellow Rupes pad. Did about 2 section passes, on speed 5 and then finished out with 4 passes on speed 3. Turned out great, I’ll probably hit it with something finer tomorrow but it really doesn’t need it.

    The polishing power was good (no issues, flat panel), I was impressed by the smoothness, and it was relatively quiet.

    I’ll get to use it more tomorrow.

    Look what showed up at my house today!

    I wasn't actually expecting it since it showed up on the same day I got the shipping notification.

    I know it was just a trunk but do you forsee any issues with excessive temp on the head? Or any issue with the backing plate?
