Hi Jason
I just recently placed an order for the EDGE 2K pads and adapter kit and was wondering if I decide to switch from my PC to a Flex would I need a new adapter ?

Thanks in advance

Bill

yes, you would. The adapter for PC, Flex, and even rotaries are all different. Currently the Flex adapter is only sold thru Edge directly and made in small numbers as they machine it into the actual backing plate included with Flex.

I have water spots on my dads Z06 that I could not get off. I tried claying and hand polishing etc (he doesnt want to touch it with a buffer). Well today I tried using the mothers power ball mini that was lieing around. Used it with meg's polish and it started to take them out. I just want to know if it would be safe to use on the paint?

Ok I ask one, I just got my Wolfgang Fuzion Wax and was wondering what is the best way to apply and remove. I did some of my wifes vette with a white pad on a PC but I also did a wipe on and wipe off. What is the recommended procedure to apply the Fuzion wax?

Thanks AutoGeek....

I know the original PowerBall can be used on numerous surfaces and it was mostly marketed by Mothers for use for plastic and metal polishing. I would recommend taking a look at the Mothers PowerBall 4 Paint. Mothers introduced this as a product that is safe for all paint finishes.

Thanks AutoGeek....
Paste waxes such as Fuzion may be applied with the PC with great results. I would suggest either a grey finishing pad or a red LSP pad. As far as personal preference, I like to apply Fuzion by hand, wipe on and wipe off one section at a time.

The Cyclo that you purchased has two heads, so it's almost like you bought one head, got the other one for free!

We are happy to hear that you are enjoying your polisher.

Hi RR,

Take a look at the Flex XC3401 VRG Dual Action 6.5 Inch Pad Kit. We've taken the guesswork out of buying accessories with the Flex Polisher when you purchase it as a kit. We aren't able to apply the discount code to the buffers and polishers but if you give a call when you are ready to order, we can help you out with the shipping. Call Dwayne 1-800-869-3011 ext 212 and tell him you are a Corvette Forum member.

Okay, another question. I already have the Menzerna twins for cutting and polishing and Wolfgang Paint Sealant for finishing. I like the shine that this combo makes on my Torch Red car. Can you recommend anything else???

Menzerna and Wolfgang are some of the best products that you can use. The only way it could possibly look any better is if you topped the sealant with Pinnacle Souveran Paste Wax.
