I ordered  a  Cyclo Model 5-Pro Machine Polisher last week & finally got to try it out this morning. I've always used a 7" air polisher & you have to be careful & you always get swirls. This thing is amazing. You can use one hand, no swirls & you can go over edges plus it gets in tight spaces.
I got it from http://www.adamspolishes.com/c-59-machine-polishers-and-kits.aspx I got the basic kit. Never thought the blue vet could get a better shine... Cool Tried it on the Dodge first & that paint is pretty bad ..it was amazing the difference it made. We are going to see Binnie in a few weeks & taking the Blue vet ...guess I'll have to take some dark sunglasses for him to ware now Grin

I used the polisher on the 68 last week & the 73 yesterday. Then finished them off with a good wax, all in the shade. Took me around 5 hrs for each car. But the results are nothing short of amazing. No swirls & they both look like glass. Anyone could use the polisher with professional results. With the 7" polisher you have to be very careful as you can easily burn the paint or worse.
