10 hours of waxing later....

Since the camper sat on the dealer lot for over a year, it was past time for a good waxing. I settled on Meguires Flagship Marine. It has just a mild cleaner in it which brought out the shine pretty darn good. I used just under a quart of wax using my porter cable D/A sander.

The job is not measured in hours but in results. Perfection is in eye of the beholder. Looks perfect to me Station10fd. This task in on my fall To Do. What model PC are you using? I have been looking at the Adams Flex 3401 and the Adams polishing systems to attack the trailer and three vehicles. Too much for hand polishing.

Almost time to replace the pad, it's been around a good while. I couldn't imagine doing a whole RV by hand!

Is the Porter Cable random orbital polisher the same base unit as the random orbital sander?
