Here's what I have- Could not hurt your paint if you tried.
Since I started using this unit on my paint -I kid you not... people comment on my paint every time I pull up. Easy to learn how to use it with the millions of "How-to's" on youtube

There is a Fathers Day promo going on right now but they run a promo every time you turn around.

Yeah, the 7424 is the way to go for a beginner. I have one myself, coupled with the hexlogic pads I'm a happy customer.

along with the 7424 above, the Griots Garage is another great machine..AND has a lifetime warranty

they are on closeout sale at the website above...

basically any DA will be paint safe and user friendly and will finish hologram free...

there are many other great machines, but those two are def cheaper and easy to use!

I use a Flex XC3401 VRG, which is a forced rotation DA polisher. It is more powerful than a standard DA polisher, and is not really suited for beginners, since you can do some damage with it much easier than you can with the PC or Griots DA polishers. It is also a good deal more expensive than the PC or Griots DA polishers mentioned above.

Two more pieces of advice for beginners.

Try to stay away from rotary buffers and stick to DA buffers until you gain some experience. Rotary buffers, can damage your paint in a hurry, if not used properly.

With new systems like the Meguiar's Microfiber Refinishing System, the PC or Griots DA polishers, can even handle many the tougher tasks, that used to require more aggressive polishers like rotary polishers.

Yup, this is the same one I have as well. Works really well IMO. As spoiler said, Autogeek has tons of videos on youtube that are very helpful in telling you exactly how to use all of their products properly. They also have really good package deals to get started with detailing.

Here's a link to my thread about polishing my Ram. Has some more information in it along with pictures of the results: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=142829

In answer to your question----The REAL TRUTH is, the best buffer is the one that a professional detailer is using on your truck while your are sitting and watching and drinking a cold beer in the shade!!!!!!! :smileup:
