Machine polish.... do i or dont i???
« on: 10 August 2008, 10:45 »
Well i am thinking of buying a megs g220 and was wondering is it really what i need. Ive heard there aint many alternatives and its just worth spending a bit more money on the g220. Also ive found various sites from where to buy em but im not sure if i should buy the ones with the polishes included. Atm ive got some poorboys polish and sealant and i dont think i really need a compound and if i did i think i would only need a light one. Do i need anymore products for it?

anyway heres a few sites what ive found

that makes this...

you'll need pads too... I've used megs pads up until now but am considering a change over to their pads which aren't a bad price at all

what poorboys polishes do you have?

you can re-use them... just wash the pads after use
