I just bought a Porter Cable polisher, and Griots Garage Stage 1-3 polishes, best of show polish, three orange foam pads (1 for each polish stage), and one red foam pad for the Best of show wax.

Has anyone used this system before?

i have used Griot's best of show wax and I loved it. I have heard nothing but good things about Griots and if i weren't so damn busy i would probably take the time to order more of their stuff.

tell us how it all works out!

I haven't heard anything bad about them either. I have my share of fine scratches and swirl marks. I'll try to take some close up pictures for before and after comparision.

I just looked at the order confirmation email they sent me and I forgot to get some of their "Best of Show". I'll have to order some of that too.



Anyone have any tips on using that buffer?

For the PC. As for Griots...Overpriced for value, no better than some comporable Meguiars products (which are good as well)

THanks for the link, it will be a big help. The first coat went on easy, but was a hugh pain to get off. It took me 45 minutes to get it on, and 2:15 to get off. Looks good after the first coat though...only 4 more to go!

Wulley, I would have to say your using too much product! Shouldnt take you more than 1/2 hr to remove wax on a normal size vehicle....You want to barely be able to detect its presence when using the PC. Consider a Polymer protectant next time, much better durability and equal to, or better than depth and reflection...
