I don't think this is a stupid idea but would appreciate comments, especially if someone has tried it.
I am about to polish the car with a high speed rotary, but on a relatively low speed with mild cutting then pure polish using 3M foam pads (black then Blue). I am thinking of then using a small orbital sander with smaller polishing pads (black/blue) for difficult areas especially on the plastic bumpers.
Does this make sense? Has anyone else ever tried it?
Thanks for your responses - if any.
Do you have experience with a high speed rotary? If not i would stay away from it.
If you are trying to remove swirls get a Dual action polisher with some microfiber cutting and polishing pads, those are relatively new technology that bridge the gap between what a rotary and DA can do, afterwards use a foam pad to do the more fine polishing. You should be able to get most places with a 6" pad though, so you shouldn't have to worry about going to smaller pads.

If you aren't going to be helpful, you don't have to waste everyone's time with a comment like that.
