The Pinnacle XMT Porter Cable 7424XP Intermediate Swirl Remover Kit is perfect for vehicles that are more than a couple of years old and starting to show noticeable swirls. Each XMT polish included in this kit is designed to be as gentle as possible on the paint while removing imperfections.
The Pinnacle XMT Porter Cable 7424XP Intermediate Swirl Remover Kit includes:
The Porter Cable 7424XP Dual Action Polisher has all the user-friendly features of the original Porter Cable 7424, but a 4.5 amp motor enables enhanced performance and durability. The Porter Cable 7424XP Dual Action Polisher operates from 2,500 OPM to 6,800 OPM to provide a faster defect removal rate. The 7424XP features all ball and roller bearing construction with spiral/bevel gears and an improved switch design. The buffer accepts a 5/16-24 spindle thread. The pad diameter is 6 inches. The polisher includes a wrench, side handle, polishing pad, and a operating manual.
The Dual Action 5 inch Flexible Hook & Loop Backing Plate is constructed of urethane has hook and loop material permanently secured from edge to edge. A recessed edge protects the paint from impact and the post is made of durable stainless steel. The 5/16 inch thread fits any dual action polisher with a corresponding thread.
XMT Intermediate Swirl Remover #3 contains precisely milled to blend away moderate to severe blemishes while preserving the clear coat. Since clear coats are extremely thin, these Concentrated Micro Abrasives preserve as much of the paint as possible while removing only the defect. The abrasives gradually diminish as they work, giving you a built-in finishing polish. The paint will experience little or no loss of surface gloss.
XMT Ultra Fine Swirl Remover #1 is made with such small abrasives that you can’t see them with the naked eye. The sheer number and minute size of the abrasive particles blend away fine flaws in the clear coat without leaving any trace of surface marring or haze. Use XMT #1 after XMT #3 to refine the paint.
XMT Carnauba Finishing Glaze contains gentle cleaners that blend away minor flaws - like spider webbing, haziness, and overall dullness – to increase depth and clarity. At the same time, a layer of carnauba bonds to the paint surface to further enhance the dynamic shine created by the glaze. What can’t be removed with the cleaners is filled in with carnauba to create a smooth, flawless finish.
The CCS Orange 6.5 Inch Cutting Foam Pads is included for general swirl and defect removal. Orange pads are less aggressive than the yellow pads. Use the orange pad to apply swirl removers and polishes.
The CCS White 6.5 Inch Polishing Foam Pad is designed to apply cleaner waxes, micro-fine polishes, and light swirl removers. The foam is less dense than a cutting pad but more dense than a finishing pad.
Two CCS Gray 6.5 Inch Finishing Foam Pads apply waxes and paint sealants flawlessly. The soft foam is firm enough to remove light buffer swirls during final finishing.
Two 16 x 16 inch Blue Microfiber All Purpose Towels are spun from an 80/20 polyester/polyamide blend, producing a highly refined microfiber. The microscopic polyester/polyamide fibers are split with a unique process that creates a every soft, absorbent texture.
The Polish 'N Wax Applicator is an excellent tool for cutting in close around trim and mirrors, places that your polisher can’t go. The foam applicator has gray finishing foam on one side and orange light cutting foam on the other.
Pinnacle XMT Polishing Pad Conditioner softens and lubricates a dry foam pad to prevent the haze that occurs when dry-buffing. Spray a fresh pad before every use to ensure swirl-free polishing.

I've never done any detailing before and probably put a total of three coats of wax on my vehicles before. My 2008 Honda CRV's paint is in pretty bad shape and I plan to get on it next weekend. Today I did my wife's brand new Jetta and the Porter and Pinnacle products worked like a charm. Look forward to getting the Honda back in shape. I'll be buying a BMW M3 next year and hope to have the process down by then.
