    Yes.

    Re: Review: Griot's G9 - 9mm Orbit Stroke Random Orbital Polisher by Mike Phillips

    I’m one that has been wishing for a revamped short stroke polisher! Personally, I find need for DA that isn’t a long stroke. Sometimes finishing on select paints with a long stroke doesn’t give the results that a short stroke polisher will.

    I often use my GG6 or PC for finishing. Maybe that doesn’t make me the cool kid on the block but I’m after results.

    Now this machine............ I’m just going to say WOW!! price and features are stellar! I certainly don't need this but I’m certainly getting one!

    Thanks for the detailed write up, Mike!

    Was kind of rushed as I generated a lot of new original content last week before leaving for my Ohio Roadshow Class.

    Re: Review: Griot's G9 - 9mm Orbit Stroke Random Orbital Polisher by Mike Phillips

    Thanks Mike for the review.

    I have to be honest and say first that i am a newbie so beware me with my questions. I received this toy today and will like to be clear before i start to use it on my 3 cars (Nissan 350z 2004, Ford Explorer 2011 and Mustang GT 2019). To me my paints are good as i always have maintained them manually.

    Now where i want to be clear is with the Backing Plates and Pads to start.

    1. The Backing Plate that comes with the Polisher is 6". Can i use 6.5 and 6.0 or 5.5 with this backing plate?
    2. Can i use a 5" Backing Plate to use smaller Pads or vice-versa?

    What will you recommend me for better combination?

    Thanks in advance...

  10. Thanks RamAirV1 thanked for this post
