Pad advice

Okay I bought a cheap polisher from Harbor Freight. It's a 6 inch dual action.
I am buying pads probably next weekend and need advice.

I heard a lot about Buff n Shine pads on here and I've also heard a lot about Lake Country pads.
Buying them individually seems to get pretty expensive so I was looking for one of the pad kits where you pick 6 of whichever pads. I figured I could get 3 pairs to start maybe? And add as I go.
Like these: Buff n Shine 6 pack
Lake Country 6 pack
But I don't know which pads will benefit my paint correction best particularly when it comes to the cutting pad.
So I wanted some more experienced opinions.



So here are fresh photos of my sad doors and quarter panels, lal.
Basically has these straightish marks, from improper drying I think, down the sides.






From the middle of my hood across to the drivers fender. The hood was painted in January '11 so it's got far fewer problems.






Trunk. I can't feel these with my nail but I couldn't compound them out by hand.


Rear bumper.




There are also some weird scratches on the top lippy part of the bumper like some shit, maybe angry cats or unwilling hookers, was occasionally dragged across it in and out of the trunk. Those are a mixture of ones I can feel and can't feel. I couldn't get the lighting to show them up though.


Any direction is super appreciated.

My opinion would to get these
https://www.detailersdomain.com/mobi...e.asp?#page-84
get 2 yellow, 2 green, and a black for a sealant.

Then also get this
https://www.detailersdomain.com/mobi....asp?#page-135

I use to have a harbor freight it gets the job done but its not strong enough for 6" pads plus DD is a vendor and has a forum discount

On my back bumper on the same spot under it looks liie some one dragged a wire brush across it. Yours doesnt look no where near as bad I think it will compound out atleast most of it

My opinion is...

BuffnShine MF cutting pads, that will cut the deepest with your compound.

Then follow that with a finishing polish on a blue or green pad (buff n shine), both should do fine on metallic blue.

Noooo you guys were supposed to agree not leave a girl to make up her mind. You know we can't do that.

Where would you buy the BnF pads that's not the secret detailing society website?
Basically do any places that sell them have free shipping? I'm not seeing any that do.

If this helps I do agree with modded. They are a good pad I just haven't worked with them to much I gotta get on that lol.

Detailersclub.com carries the BnS pads. And no one has free shipping unfortunately. Free shipping is a hard one. Just make your order worth the shipping costs.

I personally like the pads from Detailer's Domain. They are simple and get the job done.

BnS pads. Still using a set after 3 cars and they are still holding up very well. Also can wash them in the washing machine which is awesome.

And Phil at DD and T at autoality both carry the pads.

I clean my pads with Megs APC+ 10:1. I always clean them right after im done. While washing in a machine probably works ok, i think the surface of the pad needs to be physically agitated to release all the product from the cells of the foam. Especially waxes and sealants.

They do, but its sort of pricey. Chemical Guys makes a MF wash by the gallon that works well and has a reasonable price.

Except for the fact T himself told me that. And the fact throwing them in the washer works seeing as though I've never had residue on my pads and they're just as fine as they used to be.

I never said it didnt work. I simply stated that it may not work as well on products that resist detergents, which is a fact. Some things are just hard to wash out period, no matter how you do it.
