mothers powerball for paint
 
Has anyone ever used one of these? I was thinking of giving it a try but a little nervous about hitting the paint with the drill head.

I used it on my bike but they make a special one for paint. 19.99 @ walmart. i just looked for something to do my pipes with but run it slow as they shred quite easily

powerball
 
I purchased a POWERBALL this past Friday and waxed 2 vehicles Sat/Sun. Worked like a charm. I used a low speed on my drill and let the POWERBALL do the work. I applied minimal pressure to the vehicle panels and didn't have any problems. Saved me a lot of shoulder work removing wax by hand. Purchased mine at Auto Zone for approx. $25.00.:D

A buffer will yield better, and safer results.

I use a PowerBall Mini on aluminum wheels, but I wouldn't use something like that on my paint.

If wax is hard to remove then that means that you probably applied it too thick, or you applied it to hot paint. A mist of quick detail spray will make the wax easier to wipe off. I always remove polish and wax by hand with a soft microfiber towel.

X2 (by hand). If you put the layer on as thin as you are supposed to then by hand is the best way to do it. If you layer it on thick you are wasting wax, time, and energy. I have a random orbital buffer (cheap simonize one) but don't like it much.
