Ideally I want an all-in-one solution as I'm going to mix a little clear coat into the base coat first. Will cellulose thinners work there? And can I get them from your standard B&Q?

Thanks!

As you've already bought the kit, start with the softest pad and work from there. I would have thought the overspray wouldn't take too long to disappear.

Also depends what grade of sandpaper you use to flatten the repair. Stick with something like 3000 grit and with some compound and elbow grease you should be fine.

Don't spend tonnes on the machine, get a non-pro version, then spend your savings on pads and products - I'm finding it's easy to spend more than the value of the machine on all the goods!
