Machine Polishing in the dark

I was supposed to machine polish my car this summer but it didn't happen. Would I be mad to do it in the dark? I think i makes sense as I can use a work light to see the swirls and the car won't be so hot (being colder weather)

As long as you have the proper light source then of course you can

What you are asking is "can I polish in the perfect polishing environment" lol. Yes, controlling your light source is absolutely ideal

Just as well you can polish all year round otherwise stangalang and others would have to find a different job for the depths of winter!

Like said as long as you have decent light source,however some polishing compouns do get a bit finicky,and need working differently really depends on the temperature and environmental conditions,you'll have to have a play around,this especially if it's really cold.
