Porter Cable 7424XP + what accessories needed to fix terrible paint?
I'm ready to pull the trigger on a PC 7424XP. The main reason is to fix my wife's daily driver, a '98 Honda CR-V. It has a beautiful dark green metallic paint, that is in really rough shape due to years of neglect before we got it.
There are several deep scratches and etchings, but I don't see any that go down to the primer. There are burned-in bird poops, water etchings, etc. Basically bad shape.
I will eventually consider using the 7424XP on my M3 (brand new) and my daily driver (doesn't need much), but I want to practice on this beater, first. What do I need in the way of backing plates, pads and compounds to start me out?
