Just buy a dual action (DA) polisher from Harbor Freight. No need to spend big bux on something you will use infrequently. The Harbor Freight is perfectly adequate for occasional use.

I've had several Chrysler products over the years. As a whole they were much more reliable than the Fords I've owned. I would not hesitate to buy one AFTER doing my research and satisfying myself.

You don't absolutely NEED to follow all the steps to use Zaino. I just use their Z2 like any other sealant. Works great. I'm thinking of giving Menzerna PowerLok a look when I run out of Zaino.
