    Snow Foam in Action! Always a safe way of washing the car or pre-rinsing before you do your wash.

    Any idea how effective these 'random orbitals' are?

    Random Orbital Polishers can be very effective especially for light and medium swirls, spider webbing or marks to permanently correct the paint and rejuvenate the gloss and depth.

    I cannot see the one you mention below, but at 110W that is the power of a light bulb not a polisher - at best it may tickle your car but it is not going to do anything else!

    We sell some great RO Polishers starting at 500W with a good 8mm orbit that have been designed for polishing see here: DAS6 and DAS6-Pro

    Sometimes cheap is not always good...

    What brand APC would you recommend for stripping off wax via snow foam? Mint APC do the trick? or would you use Autoglym PM3?
