Bought the Porter Cable DA..questions..

For those of you guys who have a DA polisher..if I buy the backing plate should I get the 5 or 6 inch?

Do I buy the pads a little bigger than the plate, if so how much..

Honestly I don't think it matters if you go with the 5 or 6 inch plate. I would just go with the 6 inch and then get pads that are a bit bigger than the plate.

Make sure you have pads that match the polish though. You don't want to have a rough pad when your doing your swirl removal for example.

http://www.meguiars.com/en/ has a ton of info about the pad sizes, which pad to use with which product etc.

There is a big difference between the Meguiars "consumer" and "professional" products. Buy the pro stuff, it works.

BTW, there are many fine manufacturers of care care products, I just happen to prefer this brand, no affiliation.

Google Adam's Polishes or Autogeek. I prefer Adam's because the system is color coded. Pad and polishes are matched up.
