    What's in the box? Griots G8 Mini Random Orbital Polisher by Mike Phillips

    What's in the box? Griots G8 Mini Random Orbital Polisher by Mike Phillips



    First - A shout out to my good friends at Griot's for getting me one of these HOT ITEMS in time for my class this weekend. Thank you Doug, Jeff and Rod, I consider you guys in the Best of the Best in our Industry and I LOVE working with my friends in this industry that love working with me.

    Second - This is not my review, that will come later after I actually get some time behind the tool. AND this is an abbreviated write-up as I have to get out to the garage and set-up for a class tomorrow.


    That said, look what showed up today!


    The Griots G8 Mini Random Orbital Polisher!






    Very well thought out packaging. Has nothing to do with the performance of the tool but shows what a class act the folks at Griot's are.









    The man himself.... Richard Griot!






    Quick reference car - again - well thought out, easy to read and helps you to get started fast.

    Most guys I know don't want to read a book before using a tool and this comes from a guy that writes books about tools.




    More in-depth but still a fast read....







    Snug as a bug in a rug....




    The Griot's Pouch - Everything you need to care and feed your G8




    Ah ha.... my new G8




    Very nice fit and finish in a compact size.




    Let's keep digging....




    The industry first - a quality removable cord....






    There you go - out of the box and ready for my class this weekend.






    Thank you also for the new Ceramic 3-in-1 Wax - My guess is this bottle will be empty by the time lunch gets here tomorrow.


    Coming soon to the Autogeek.com store

    Mike,

    I've never seen a photo of the G8 next to the GG3. Even the griots website doesn't have one. Could you please take a photo of the 2 side by side? Just curious.

    Will do, but can't get to it today, getting a work computer upgrade.
