Pardon my ignorance here guys. I'm new to the detailing world. I recently bought my truck and it look like the previous owner had taken it through trees or bushes. There are a lot of clear coat scratches on it. Most of the scratches I can't feel any indent with my fingernail when running over them.
I realize there are a lot of suggestions about the Griots or Porter Cable DA and I would love to get one of those kits. But my issue is my budget. For now, I can't drop the dough on them (saving for a wedding). Is there a cheaper, yet effective, alternative to getting rid of them?
There is a cheaper alternative. I was on a budget when U got started as well. Here is what I did.
Harbor Freight DA polisher.

Sealant of choice this is the one I use meguiars m21 and is a good price and works.
Look around at prices but the links above are pretty good. All in you will spend around 190 and get everything you need to correct the paint many times.
