The orbital polisher has landed

Bought an orbital polisher from Halfrauds yesterday. 29.99. Looks quite good i think! Colly 915 + BH + 2 hours later...

Cool, so you got the halfords one, like mine, it makes buffing off easier doesn't it

Nice shine

Its its a not bad wee bit of kit. By the end i was using a microfibre cloth of my own on the orbital instead of the one provided. It makes it MUCH easier to buff of the BH.
