Lovely job Paul!

I'm just curious, if you had to sum up in a couple of sentences, what do you find the advantages to be of the Rupes Bigfoot?

I've not really kept abreast of changes in the Detailing field for a couple of years now, is the Bigfoot basically a really good way to do a cost-effective 1 stage correction or is there some other reason that you'd use that over a rotary system?

I've seen some bad swirls in my time on here, but that car must have been washed with a scouring pad!!
Great work Paul, really top notch
One of the posters on here asked about the benefits of the Bigfoot, I also would like to know what is special about this machine.

Cheers............Kev

The Rupes Bigfoot not only saves you up too 40% in time over rotary methods, Bigfoot doesnt heat up the paint so much on curves and edges so not much of a concern than when using the rotary. Doesn't produce buffer trials or unwanted swirl marks, corrects in a more even way than rotary, finishes better than a rotary and can correct hard paint or soft paint with no issues at all, sticky paint is no problem for the bigfoot, it can remove 2000 sanding marks without a problem, Bigfoot is super smooth as well you wouldnt think it had a orbit of 21 and 15mm.

Ive been using the Rupes Bigfoot system continuously for a year now and not picked the rotary up once!

The best bit of the bigfoot is the time saving and how quick it corrects with no headaches at all, just perfect correction every time, I think Ive posted enough cars over the last year to prove that system works perfectly on any type of paint.

Any more questions please ask away!


Kind Regards
Paul Dalton

Paul's amazing posts and his results with the Bigfoot sold me on the system and I haven't looked back.

I do a lot of detailing with a well known PDR specialist here in Melbourne, Australia and he has also gone away from the Flex to using a Bigfoot. Last night we corrected a Toyota Landcruiser in one step with the green pads and the Zephyr polish in just over 4 hours of combined work time. And all without any compound dusting!!!

The Bigfoot results are stunning and we have never corrected cars so quickly. A huge thank you to Paul for sharing your inspirational work which challenges us to be better detailers.
