@  Fast86GN : (04 March 2019 - 07:05 PM)

I don't think it would that loud probably depends on the mufflers used?

Don't know where on the east coast you are, but there's one for sale on craigslist in south Jersey...https://southjersey.craigslist.org/cto/d/browns-mills-98-buick-regal-gs/6779489044.html

@  Frank : (15 February 2019 - 03:42 PM)

Hello everyone! Its been a long time!. Looking to get back into the game. Anyone have a GS on the east coast they wish to part with?

@  ejguillot : (14 February 2019 - 09:08 PM)

Still have a Regal GS project that has taken way too long to build, and it's nowhere near done.

@  ejguillot : (14 February 2019 - 09:08 PM)

Same here.

Whats the best rotary buffer out there these days? I'm looking for light weight but good quality. I've got a old Milwaukee that weighs a ton and kills my back after 4-5 hours of buffing. I was looking at the Mikita 9227c and the much more expensive Flex PE-14. I've kinda been leaning towards the Mikita for the price but what else is out there that's good?

Here in Chicago we have a place called Harbor Freight, its pretty much a smaller Farm and fleet. They have a buffer made by a company called Chicago electric I think, its pretty light and under $100. I was thinking of getting one and seeing if it was any good.

Cool. Picked up a cheap Harbor Freight one for $20 bucks or so and bought the 3M foam pads. It's worked well the past two years.

The Makita 9227 and Dewalt are both good. The newer Makita I believe has a better trigger and finer motor control but I haven't used it personally. Mine is older The 7424XP is a dual action, not a rotary. I use the 7424 extensively as its just so easy and light compared to the Makita. On more demanding jobs the Makita comes out of the tub.

Really you can do just about anything with a 7424 BUT it takes a lot longer and will go through more compound as a result for heavy correction.

What's better, orbital ?

 

D/A for most people.  It's pretty foolproof when it comes to destroying the paint.  A rotary is a lot more powerful but if you've not used one it's not a good idea to buy one for the car you care about.  They can cause some serious issues in inexperienced hands.

Glad I read this. Every year I say I will research a good one and buy it. Then I end up sweating my bum off doing it by hand and it's never as good.

I am no pro here but have been running a Porter Cable for around 3 years now and have spent a lot of money on different polishes and compounds I started with Meguiars and loved it but wanted to see what else was out there and went with Pinnacle xmt line and settled with chemical guys’s v series. Seems to work out pretty good for me so far.

my brothers got a PC, ive used it a lot. works great. i went and got a HF buffer, its the same damn thing, works the same feels the same. even sounds the same lol  

 

for 75 bucks the HF buffer is the schit.

 

with any orbital buffer you have pretty much zero chance of burning the paint.

 

them rotary buffers are not for a noob. that wheel must never stop moving or bye bye paint.

 

these pics always seem to sell a buffer or two lol

 

before, i had just got the car, the paint was more then dead and lifeless.
