Re: Tips For Compound, Polish & Wax

Thats good it looks like you have everything. The type of pad you had in your first picture is really the best style for your setup. Push the nut down into the hole of the pad against the semirigid backer that the napp is mounted on,now place that onto the hard black rubber piece with the exposed part of the nut down in the recess on the black rubber backer. Now take this and screw it onto your motor,to tighten press the spindle lock and grab the pad and backer and give a good twist,its that simple. You have plenty of pads to choose from with this style including the foam rubber type for light polishing. For the velcro style you will have to purchase everything new from the threaded shaft out. Those tie on bonnetts,just leave them at the store.

If theres a auto parts store near you they have these supplies its the same stuff the body shops use. I'm talking a real old school type store not autozone or advanced, NAPA would be a good choice ,take your grinder in with you if you want there pros and very willing to help.
where you at near DC?
