Polishing with Orbital Sander

Now this may seem odd but I have an orbital sander that 5 inches in diameter with hook & loop retaining for sand paper. I recently saw Maguire's polishing pads that are hook & loop approximately 6 inches in diameter.

Can or should I use this sander with the polishing pads? I cannot see any problem as it will stall with excess pressure (as in sanding) and with the soft 3/4 inch cutting/polishing pad should be the same as a "polisher".

Any comments, anyone ever tried this, do you see any problems?

Thanks for any comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unless you feel really lucky, if your Mustang is not your DD, practice on your other car. If you get swirl marks in the paint, you may never get them out. Got a girlfriend about to be your ex?
