I have never found one of those that fits my hands... Just don't understand.....my fingers just start hurting the moment I pick one up. If I put it down, all good... :)

Tab if you make it back here... I got a chance to use the Rupes today. I'm not really doing anything that requires paint correction and have only used it to apply Adams liquid paint sealant so I really can't comment on its correcting ability, although I'm reasonably sure it should outperform the Porter Cable.

But as far as usability I highly recommend you retire the Porter Cable to the bedroom. The Rupus hardly vibrates at all and I used it one handed 90% of the time either by the handle where the trigger is or just holding the body above the buffer pad. Doing the same task with the Porter-Cable my fingers would have been asleep.

It truly was a pleasure to use.

I've had many polishers. That Rupes is great, my friends loves his. Ive switched to the
Cyclo like Scott. The thing is badass, also looks old school. lol

So hood and fenders is going to get paint correction and then entire truck a coat of LPS and then patriot wax. I just stripped washed it and dried it off. Taking a break and then going to drag this bad boy out.
