I'll be buying an orbital from you soon.
Honestly the SSR 3 is SUPER aggressive and would not recommend it to a weekend detailer. It causes a lot of hazing that needs to be followed up with the 2.5 to even restore the shine back int he paint. What I would suggest would be to do a coat of the 2.5 with an Orange Cutting Pad or even a Wool pad, then another coat of the 2.5 with a White Polishing Pad, followed by the SSR 1 with a White Polishing Pad... Save the SSR 3 for pro's Even I don't like using it!
