i have found through use that Chem guys is TRASH.

Every time, there's a deal on chem guys products, i'm like hmmm,interesting... then when I receive product, it's just utter Garbage. the soap sucks. I find that in this "cheap soap" category, Adam's line of soaps and polishes is BETTER than chem guys, at the same price point.

in addition, I find "kits" not well equipped to your individual needs.

if i had to choose, i'd go for the torq kit.

I've used their Honeydew snow foam for years and love it. Tons of suds. Use with a foam cannon and you will be happy.

I think my problem is; i'm buying the chemguys soap that is heavily discounted on amazon.
Im sure their regular product is good, as most times, there's just one manufacture for chemicals/soaps anyway. just gets rebranded

I do use the Honeydew concentration and have a foam cannon. Mainly looking to save time on waxing and getting a better finish with an oribital.

the purist will say; Dont use an orbital for LSP or Last step product!
but i put that shit on the lowest setting to apply sealants, my choice of LSP.

mainly i use the orbital to correct paint, or to get the swirls and imperfections out.

the Porter cable is a novice machine. you will never burn through paint.


"to save time"

Heh, once you enter this rabbit hole, Alice...you wont know what time is

I agree, the Porter Cable is a great beginner orbital to use. tough to burn the paint but not impossible.

I would go with option 1. Porter cable does make decent products also. I use a porter cable palm orbital to apply wax on cars but my polisher is a Rupes. If your main concern is the TL then the bigger pad will be nice since our cars have nice big panels with no moldings. Good luck and have fun with it

I would check out AdAms polishes Swirl Killer polisher. Almost no Chance of burning the clearcoat. I used this machine for both my cars, looks awsome. Ive never used machine before this bc i was too scared to ruin the car!!!
