Hi, I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to this but hope I don't sound too stupid I'm getting a machine polisher and it comes with different pads, what's the difference between the coarse and soft pads? When would I use what?
what are the make of pads and what machine you getting. if your a noob do not get an orbital polisher. coarse pads will have a greater cut than softer pads. with the polish and pad combo, always start with the least cut and work your way up.
With your car being black, you'll need a really soft pad to finish the polishing, I can't remember what the stuff we've been using to finish (Had some work in a car repair/painting garage) as without it the black just goes swirly as hell.
You probably know already but just in case, keep the pad nice and moist when polishing, use a bit too much to begin with just so you know how much water to use (Use a spray bottle) so you don't burn through the paint.
