    Something I share with all my detailing classes and really, pretty much anyone I talk to about getting into machine polishing,

    Here at Autogeek, most polishers come in a kit and the kit includes enough pads TO GET YOU STARTED - but it's not enough pads to buff out a car. If Autogeek included all the pads you needed to do a proper paint correction detail job my guess is, due to the number of pads the kit would include it would scare too many people away from purchasing the polisher.

    So we include enough to get you going and most people come to the conclusion, out as they buff out a car or two,


    I need more pads


    In fact, I always try to include a picture of all the pads I use in my write-ups that document my work as to how many pads I use as a way of TELEGRAPHING to the masses that you need more than one or two pads to buff out a car.


    1: With more pads you work faster.

    2: With more pads YOU and your hard work are more efficient - this means when compounding you do a better job and a faster job of actually REMOVING defects. If a person tries to use one or two pads to do all the compounding and correction work - at some point the pads become so wet and soft, they are no longer cutting or correcting and thus you are simply wasting time.

    3: With more pads, because you switch out often, your pads are not as PUNISHED and therefore last longer.


    Those three reasons are just off the top of my head, there's probably more.


    Thanks for the PM too!
