If you want to keep your car in tip-top shape, one of the keys is to make sure that the exterior of your vehicle is kept well. Polishing is an essential means of protecting your car’s paint job and the actual body of your vehicle. To make the most of your polishing job, you may want to consider using a circular rotary polisher. It can take some practice before you get used to using a circular polisher, but with time, performing car polishing jobs would be near perfection. Here’s a guide that will help you along on your path to circular rotary polisher mastery:
Choose your polisher well.
Before we get into the specifics, let’s talk about buying your polisher. When buying a polisher, it’s important to think of it as an investment. Spend for a quality circular rotary polisher and you can be sure that it will last for years to come, perhaps even outliving your car.
Practice before actual use.
It’s a great idea to practice operating the polisher before you use it on your car. Pick up scrap parts from a junkyard so you can practice polishing them with the machine. When you feel comfortable enough, you can try using it on your car.
Work with low speeds.
A common mistake that people make when using circular polishers is called “paint burn,” when the polisher is left in one spot for too long and causes the paint to build up heat. To avoid this, use low speeds on your polisher and make sure to move at a slow, even pace across your car’s surface.
When you’re done
When you’re done polishing your car, turn off the polisher while still pushing it against the surface of the car. Only pick up the polisher from the surface once it has stopped turning.
