Richard's Top 3
Polish Tips


Pattern for perfection. Work your machine in a cross-hatch pattern to ensure complete coverage.


Too much of the good stuff? Once you prime the pad with polish only add 2 to 4 drops as you continue working.


Cord over shoulder. Don't let your Random Orbital's power cord flop around where it can contact the car and leave blemishes, or worse.
