I have been using a DeWalt 849X rotary polisher, and I don't feel I have the patience or the touch to not produce "halos." I used the Lake county 7.5 pads; blue with Meguiars M205, white with Meguairs M105. I always wash with dish soap and clay bar to remove any wax, then tape everything off. Last time I finished with some Griott's hand wax. The shine and water beading was great! But in the sunlight, there was still a lot of halo. Someone suggested I try using a DA polisher, so I am thinking about picking one up. Autogeek has the 6 pack of pad deal, and I was going to pick up some new pads for a DA. Any recommendations on which pads to use with the M205 and M205 compounds? Paint is in good shape, light swirling. Car was repainted and color sanded using PPG products 7 years ago. Car is sonic blue, so not dark, but not light. Also, I was looking for some finishing wax that won't break the bank...maybe Griott's best of show? Thanks for any input you guys may have.
