Adam's complete dual action car polishing kit?

Anyone bought our used this kit? My elcheapo buffer died last year and I'm in the market for a new one and I was brousing around Adam's and found this kit. The kit looks like it's got it all and I like that. It is kind of pricey but with a nice dual action buffer included its not too bad of deal I guess.

http://www.adamspolishes.com/p-338-a...isher-kit.aspx

I need to get something to replace my old buffer and would like something with a lot more arse behind it. The wife's Black Honda Civic is oxidized pretty bad, (been about 4 years since she's waxed it) and I need to get busy on it and shine it back up.

Thanks

I've got it and I absolutely love it.

Worth every penny of the cost.

Especially since you get 10% off when you use the "TDG" code at checkout.

I will update you on it after I polish my truck (CCSB) but from what I've heard you should be able a while It also depends on how much you have to use (how bad your paint is).

I have it, and love it!

I can't say for sure how long the bottles last, I have never checked it close enough, but they should last you a few times.

I agree! I can do quite a few cars with an entire bottle so your truck should be no problem. Use the correct amount and don't overwork the polish. Be sure and check out the free videos at Adam's Forums.

For some reason, I am thinking a bottle is supposed to be able to do a CC LB about 3 times..... But I might be wrong on that.......

I would say you could do a dually CCLB at LEAST 3 times. More like 4 probably.
