best auto detailing tips logo

When it comes to detailing, very few things rise to the top of the list than does the desire to polish cars! Very few things stir the soul like a freshly polished and waxed car.

Unfortunately in this digital age in which we live, many of you will likely be experiencing what I refer to as information overload; endless opinions as to what to do and what to use. 

And when it comes to car buffers and car polishing, the endless horror stories from misinformed people only make matters worse and will likely leave many of you feeling like you are chasing your tail from one car polisher review to the next. In the meantime you are not any closer to realizing your dreams of the satisfaction that comes from the ability to polish a car to professional grade results in a safe and timely manner.


"I want to learn to polish cars but I am so confused! How do I know which car polisher to buy or which car polish to use. I am tired of the endless opinions!"


You are not alone!

Car polishing is a topic full of endless opinions and endless choices when it comes to what kind of car polisher to use and which car polishes are best.

Like every other area of life though, polishing your car has become easier than ever due to technology and engineering. The industry has finally responded with a system of tools and polishes that bring professional grade results to the true new beginner.




As Simple as Simple Gets!

What if I was to tell you that polishing your car with an actual buffer is so safe and easy that a true beginner that has never even touched a power tool in their life, is now completely doable and a true reality!

Thanks to the overwhelming response of the industry to take what was reserved for experienced professional detailers, the industry has produced equipment and products that a true novice can use right out of the box and achieve a level of results that were impossible until very recently.

Part of my kit I use professionally to polish cars. There are endless choices in car buffers, compounds, and polishes. Trust me on this; you really don't need to overthink it from the beginning. I really have dedicated this page to helping you keep it super simple while teaching you how to get true professional level results!



I told you it can get confusing quickly!

polishing with griots garage car polisherHere I am performing high-level paint correction with the very same Griot's Garage kit to polish cars with.

Since most people are looking to simplify their life not complicate it, I suggest either kit to polish cars with from above.

  • Both buffers are top performing DA buffers. (There are in fact numerous dual-action, random orbitals to choose from. But once again, you could spend days reading endless reviews. And the reality is that if you actually do like to polish cars and stay with it, you will end up getting more and more car polishers. You will not be able to help yourself. Which is why at the beginning I truly recommend you don't over-think it.)
  • The polishes from either kit are literally the only polishes you will need to deliver professional results.
  • Some of the actual polishes I use professionally. (not the only polishes I use as I am continuously testing more and more products as they enter the market)
  • Either kit is perfectly suited for a true beginner, to a seasoned veteran like myself.
