Car Care Organizer Bag - really helps to keep everything organized and transporting to and from the car (needless to say the gf is super happy about this one since she's able to get part of the 'car closet' back.
After some more reading it sounds like I should be using the orange or white pad would be better. I errored initially to use the blue just to be safe.
You would also be better off with a 5" backing plate and 5.5" FLAT pads rather than the CCS pads. On your initial order of a 6 pack of 5.5" pads you save enough to purchase a 5" backing plate and from then on you save $15 ever time you order 6 pads as opposed to 6.5" pads. Even with the power of the Groits correction will go faster with the smaller pads. I would suggest you read, read, read and watch some polishing videos. There is a lot of info here: http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/...-phillips.html
A great polish for beginners is HD UNO Advanced Cut http://hdcarcare.com/
On hard VW clear it cuts, polishes and finishes depending on pad choice, speed, pressure etc and finishes down lSP ready. You only need to buy one product for $20 and it is totally dustless. Very user friendly.
