Cheers Double D. Ordered.

I have a rotary but I don’t actually know what I’m doing and seem to have got away with it up till now.

Plus as someone said above I’m fed up of flicking polish everywhere lol
Mate - you are probably using too much polish then :lol: :lol: :lol:

I went on a course down at KDS detailing, cost me about £50 from memory and taught me how to do it properly. And also came with a pizza for lunch :lol: :lol:

I wouldn't say I know much about it, but i know enough not to damage the cars now. It's definitely £50 well spent. You get demos and also the chance to try out both da and rotary machines and they teach you how to use them properly.

Course was run through detailing world - they run it every now and again
Ha yes indeed Andy you’re probably right mate.

Yeah I’d definitely be interested in that detailing course, sounds like fun!!

In the meantime, DA seems safer!!!
looks like you've done a pretty good job.

the key with the rotary is to avoid buffer trails which are easy to leave in and show up more in sunlight.

i only use the rotary if i have some more serious correction to do. just buffing up etc best done with the da

I hope when you’re reviewing it you’re wearing sandals like the guy in the video posted above who also reviewed it.
