    Machine polishers cost a bit more than I would like to spend on a polishing job. If I bought some compound and use a microfiber towel would that be ok?

    I have no problem with effort. Effort is very much worth it to get my car looking great. I know about the clay bar and plan on buying that also Ill look into the mothers ball
