I have a Porter-Cable orbital polisher/buffer. I used a very soft pad to apply it. A few drops at a time on the pad and touch the car surface 5-6 times to "spread" it. Set the polisher to 6 to go over the area to be covered and then jacked it up to 10 for a bit over the surface. Then a buffer pad to finish.
I like Klasse. Nice shine, fairly good durability. I use (and prefer) Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0 on darker cars. On my white SLK55 I'm using Maquiar's NXT2.0. So far so good. I use my DA orbital for compound and polish only. Sealant applied by hand (just a personal preference).
I use it as part of a process- I strip the old wax, then apply a light coat of the Klasse by hand and let it cure for several hours. I then apply a white carnauba by hand and buff. Then, a good liquid wax, Zymol or Pinnacle or the like. Hard acrylic base with a warm wax shine. Fantastic! It's labor intensive, though, so I don't do the entire process too often, just the liquid wax every month or so.
My SLK is black, so always looks a bit dusty (not dirty) normally! I would like to buy a polishing machine and the kit and would like advice. Any thoughts on a home/DIY no frills buffing machine - no scratches on the paintwork, it just needs a brighter shine!
