About to order from Autogeek. Any other discount codes? Any changes I should make? Thanks for all the help, guys.

I found a free shipping code and a 15% code and I was able to apply both.

Take a look at detailer's domain or see if autogeek will match their offer of free shipping (over certain purchase amount) and 20% off first order (Welcome20 is code).

I was able to get 15% off and free shipping at Autogeek. Also, their prices seemed quite a bit lower for the items I was getting. For example:

8oz FG400 was $24 at Detailer's Domain and $18 at Autogeek.

8oz SF3500 was $25 at Detailer's Domain and $13 at Autogeek.

16oz Power Lock was $32 at Detailer's Domain and $24 at Autogeek.

16 x 16 Über Microfiber Towel was $6 at Detailer's Domain and 16 x 16 Supreme 530 Microfiber Towel was $5 at Autogeek.

It pays to shop around. Take a look at Detailed Image. They have great specials, fast inexpensive shipping, and great regular prices.

Autogeek on line is generally cheaper with more choices.

The Uber micro fiber towel tend to leave more lint behind when wiping the truck off as compared to the Supreme. Take my word or experiment for yourself. Also go with the CCS pads it is better than the flats. Add CCS Gray Finishing Foam 4 Inch Pad as well. You have a good amount pad choices but I would go with getting twice as much pads to increase efficiency. In other words eventually your pads will become contaminated with paint and/particles that if you continue to buff without a clean pad you will do just as much damage to your paint vise correction. So if you get more pads you have more time to buff vise clean.

Yes detailers domain is cheap off you first purchase but after that I tend to go with AGO.

@JOEGUAM What is AGO? I will order some CCS pads when I order the polisher. Probably going with the Griot's or Harbor Freight DA polisher. The Porter Cable seems like it might not have the power needed.

Sorry Autogeek OnLine. I have the Harbor Freight, a Rupes LHR 75E HD Mini Random Orbital Polisher and Porter cable. Porter Cable is enough and is better than the Harbor Freight. The Harbor Freight works and cost less but for more functionality there are a few mods to make it more friendly. Out of the three posted the Rupes does not make my hands as numb as the other two.

I'm a new guy here, but I figure I would throw this in for discussion. I get my good microfiber from Theragcompany.com. Great stuff much cheaper. I believe that's where Adam's gets theirs, probably most of the other shops as well. The Junkman posted a video about them.
Might save folks a couple bucks.

Many of the high end microfiber towels are produced by the Koreans but cut to size in China.
By the way Autogeek Online has a 20% off. Just use Stock20 in the coupon code section.

I have a Makita 7" polisher and a Dynabrade dual action adapter like this one

http://www.autopia.org/forums/machin...fing-head.html

I have read the first 90 pages of this detailing thread, and my question is should i sell these on ebay and buy a Griots DA, or will i be OK with it if i put a smaller backing plate on. I have about $400 tied up in this one, but selling it would let me buy most of what i need from the list of products mentioned. ( I bought this setup a couple of years ago)

I have never used an adapter like you described. Is the polisher adjustable speed? You typically use different settings (1-6) with different steps or desired outcomes. If it is not adjustable speed I would get a regular DA polisher. The only other thing would be size and weight. DAs are fairly light and are manoverable. It takes a long time to correct a cars paint. Holding the DA for long periods of time. You could always add a Harbor Freight DA to your tools. For around 50 bucks you get a good polisher. Mine has done lots of cars over a few years and is going strong.
