In a perfect world, you wouldn't need to polish your car's
paint. Washing and waxing your car is all that's really necessary to protect
and beautify your car's exterior finish.
Most of us don't live in a perfect world so car polishing is essential. Your car's paint is
radiated by the sun, bombarded by
pollution, acid rain, salt and other contaminants, and assaulted by foreign objects.
It happens little by little every single day.
If you want to keep your car, truck, boat or RV looking nice
or if you want to put a shine back on your car... take 3-5 minutes and read this
article on proper car polishing!

CAR POLISHING 101 - WHY DO YOU NEED TO POLISH YOUR CAR WITH A DUAL-ACTION CAR POLISHER?
Polishing your car's paint fixes the damage caused by
the sun, contamination, foreign objects, and washing and drying with poor
quality wash mitts and towels.
It is no longer possible to effectively polish
and wax your car by hand. The simple reason is that modern
car paint finishes, since about year 2000, are very hard and durable.
The solution is car polishing with the Porter
Cable 7424XP Car Polisher, a
pro-consumer car polisher. The Porter Cable professional grade polisher has
the power to properly maintain your car's paint and correct common paint

Cable 7424XP Car Polisher is a dual-action
car polisher. That simply means that the polishing head both orbits and
rotates at the same time.

for car polishing by the professional or the serious car care enthusiast. It is 100% safe for
the do-it-yourselfer who wants an automotive polisher that is safe to use
and provides awesome results.
If you have never used an electric car polisher on your car
before, but want professional results that are simply not possible by hand,

WHAT MAKES THE PORTER CABLE BETTER?
Most consumer grade car polishers are oscillating devices that
perform well as electric waxing machines, but perform very poorly as
"polishers". All modern cars, which have a clear coat finish, require a
polisher, not a waxer.
What's the difference between a polisher and a waxer?
A car polisher has the ability to apply polish (any abrasive
compound) with enough energy to correct paint defects (surface scratches, swirl
marks, water spots, etc.). On the other hand, an electric waxing machine,
often called a "car polisher", generates enough energy to distribute wax, but
won't make corrections.
If you want to maintain the shine on your car, or remove common paint
defects, including oxidation, water spots, insect damage, swirl marks and
scratches, you need the Porter
Cable 7424XP Car Polisher.
HOW EASY IS IT TO USE THE PORTER CABLE... CAN I
HURT MY CAR'S PAINT?
It's really easy, honest!
The polishers have a bit of weight to them; they weight about 6
pounds. However, you don't apply much pressure unless you're doing paint
There's a little bit of technique involved, but most people get
it in about 5-10 minutes. The technique is to use overlapping motions and
run the polisher over your paint at a nice and slow speed.
Proper machine car polishing is as easy as following this simple pattern.
Master this and you're on your way!
