Im getting set up for my first attack on my hull's finish.
Ive read and reread the posts here (especially MaineSail's very useful guide).
As a woodworker, I already own a Porter Cable 7424 dual action sander and I am going to convert it for use for compounding and polishing. This seems to be a highly recommended tool for this purpose at AutoGeeks.
I notice that most of the posts here (including MS) use a wool buff pad for the initial compounding step. Im wondering if a Lake Country orange pad along with a 3M Super Duty Rubbing Compound on my 7424 will be almost as good (thereby avoiding the purchase of a larger polisher) for the first step. Slower maybe, safer probably? Any thoughts?

Yes, Ill check out the yellow pads. I thought the orange was the most aggressive but I see I missed one. I also noticed that Lake County sells wool pads and Ill see if I can get one of those to fit the DA. Thanks
