    Under door handle is only real place that i think i’d use a 1”

    I've thought about using a one-inch under door handles but my only concern there would be inadvertently running the shaft into the door handle and marring it up. Haven't tried yet but that is something I see as a potential concern.

    Under the door handles might always be a hand operation for me... Won't know for sure until I try.

    pnst1, Im in the same boat needing a super mini polisher. I do quite a few Harleys and need something small for the inner fairings, around bag latches, etc. Tat Max Shine kit seems like it would be tool. How well does it work?

    The rotary mini polisher attachment works great for behind door handles and honeycomb grills. I generally would use the cone shape foam to do this.



    It also has a 1/2" and a 1" backing plate. I generally would use 1/2" in conjunction with the cone shape foam to work on around and between the lettering of the logo or badge if removing them were not an option. I bought center hole arch punches so that I could punch out my own 5/8" and 1 1/4" pads and this saves me a little $$$.



    The attachment also comes in handy when I have to polish carbon fiber or painted parts inside the cabin.

    Just dont go crazy with the speed and keep the pad moving and you will be fine. With the pads that small, I would recommend switching out the pads often to keep residue under control for better results.
