I've got some specialized pads for my cars and bike, but I need some pads that will do the job and I won't feel bad about trashing.
My Saltare needs a bottom polish like you wouldn't believe. So I need some pads that can cut pretty good, and then some more to smooth out the swirls once all the oxidation is removed. Then a polishing pad.
I now have a Porter Cable polisher which will save me hours of doing it by hand like I used to. But I'm really trying to get it to that high gloss shine that a few of you guys with old girls have. There are a couple of boats in here that shine like new, even better, and I want to get my boat to that level.
I'll be using 3M Marine on everything till I get to the high gloss stuff. But for cutting and polishing, 3M's products seem to hold up well.
But I need some pads. What are you guys using, and where did you get them from?
