Hey guys, I'm new to the whole car detailing scene and I just got a black 09 Maxima. I just purchased ONR and the OW spray. As of now I just plan on using the ONR to clean the vehicle then spray the wax on after. I want to get into polishing the vehicle, there are currently some light scratches on the car from my previous improper washing techniques so I would like to correct those as well as keep the car maintained and clean. I was interested in buying a polisher machine and I've heard about the PC7424 for around $100 on ebay but I saw some polishers at homedepot and lowes that were more affordable, should I stay away from these or what are your opinions on these. And lastly, I read that there are many types of pads to use and I don't know what the difference is with them, what should I use? Again I'm new with polishing and have never used a machine so keep that in mind and try to use simplistic language as I am not used to detailing lingo yet, thanks in advance guys.
Also any extra info would be great or products that you think I should try.
The main thing I just want to do to my vehicle is keep it clean and correct the light scratches that it currently has.
