    Great bit of kit, Megs pads give a great finish too.

    Megs G220 orbital is easy to use. A rotary is a more powerful bit of kit and is easy to do damage in the wrong hands. I use to (some years ago) valet cars and used a rotary at work. I have a G220 now to polish, I apply wax by hand.

    You could use AG super resin polish by hand. Less is more is best and work the polish. You will have arms like popeye at the end of it.

    I use a Porta Cable to do my motor. I got it from America. Works a treat I recon. And it makes light work of it all.

    You can get this on its own or as a complete kit from one of Vectra-C's approved traders - AutoBrite Direct: http://www.autobritedirect.co.uk/sho...oducts_id=1966 Comes in at £140.00GBP for the machine or £250.00 for the whole kit but its well worth the money.

    Hope this helps
