A Brilliant Machine
Having used the Ultimate Finish guides on machine polishing, I had a pretty good idea what to expect of this machine - but I can honestly say that it exceeded my expectations in all areas and I was delighted I invested that little extra. Slightly more pricey than some machines, it's worth the extra; slow start (which keeps the product on the pad!) and an excellent footprint are two of the big features of Rupes. The overall quality is superb and the polishes, microfibre clothes and pads come together to make this a great first kit if you are going to get serious about looking after your pride and joy. Having always polished 'by hand', this has been a revelation! No more swirl marks that were usually there after a hand polish (despite my best efforts!) and the kit makes it easy to use - the pads, polishes and cloths are all colour coded so there's no messing up! Would I recommend this to a serious detailer or keen novice? The answer is a firm yes in both cases! If you are considering a good quality dual action polisher then this is a real gem!!! Now that I have entered the world of machine polishing, there is definitely no turning back and I look forward to trying out some new polishes in due course.
