      Hey guys,

      About to pick up my first orbital buffer: http://www.detailersdomain.com/Griot...it-_p_694.html

      Phil has one heck of a deal there and I really want to grab it. I spoke to him about possibly substituting the three included Adam's products for different Adam's products if I wanted and he said it would be okay.

      My question is, which three Adam's products would you recommend to get rid of moderate to severe swirls and scratches on my Black Audi? I was thinking of simply replacing the "Adam's Revive Polish" for "Adam's Machine Polish" but am not too familiar with Adam's products.

      Hope you guys can help. Thanks!

      you would have to consider, severe swirls and haze remover (green bottle) and fine machine polish, then a wax would be buttery wax.

      Great, thanks. That's what I had in mind. Just placed my order!

      Keep in mind that the pad makes a difference too. Even if you're using a heavy compound, sometimes you need a more abrasive pad to take care of the real heavy scratches. Always try to start with a higher PPI pad, like maybe your green one for normal scratches, but if it's real bad and the green doesn't get it out, step up to the orange, or even the yellow. As usual, better safe than sorry but often times I have to use an orange pad for the swirls on the black car.

      Great tip, thank you. I did end up getting one of each color pad because I wasn't sure what I needed. I'll start with the green and work my way up
