Greg, quick question.
I have on my wish list the PC DA buffer, but for now would it be worth it to get a cheap buffer like the Ryobi instead of doing it by hand? or should I wait until I get the real thing?

Thanks!

In my opinion it's 100% worth it to save up and get the PC. It has so much more power while safe and easy to use. It also can utilize the high quality foam pads that are essential to quality detailing. Bonnets and OEM foam pads that come with buffers are often terrible. Even the pad that comes with the PC is horrible which is why we carry the Lake Country Pads and only recommend using them. If you have any other questions please let me know.
