(just got the griots garage random orbit polisher and the griots website has a slew of videos on there that make me less afraid to try it out) That thread RB's talking about with the FG400 is pretty neat. I'm leaning towards using that product after reading that thread.
absolutely man! which did you get the griots or the Porter cable?

Let me know what pads you have and what products you are planning to use for it, as far as the compounding goes, I can attest that using a product like the Menzerna FG400 (havent tried yet), Meguiars D300 Compound, or their Ultimate Compound, or M105 all are best used withe the microfiber cutting pads you can buy from DD or meguiars. its really amazing nowadays what you can correct with a machine, without making a mess of dust and without risk of harming your finish.

if you have any Q's just hit me up.

Mike, you set a nice order of steps down and some helpful vids for this guy, hope he gets a sweet shine like yours!
