PS i bought a coleman buffing wheel for like 15 bucks at walmart it's nice and low powered ,and has one speed which is good for me, because i'm scared of scratching the paint. Also I think the name of the forum is the 'detaling section', one of those threads I posted should be in the forum your looking for. Good luck.

PhotoGuy: One place where you can get hands on practice is going to be near you in Feb. Go to www.autogeekonline.net and look for their open house invite. It's in Stuart FL and a couple of pro detailers will be attending to give lessons on using tools and products. Might be worth your time (and future investment) to spend a day with them. They are part of the Palm Beach Motoring Accessories Group and have a fantastic bunch of people who are more than willing to assist.

I'm trying to wrangle a trip there myself from Kansas City
