Back plates and pads... help?

Hi,

I’m looking for some suggestions for backing plates and pads to fit a rotary polisher that was gifted to me.

I’m currently working on the paint of my Audi A6 Avant by hand and you’ll probably be aware, it’s a big car.

Ideally, I wouldn’t be using an rotary, but as it was gifted to help me out, I want to use it and the car is the perfect test subject as there are a few areas that will need painting. Worse case scenario, I’ll learn on these areas

Apologies for the long intro, but if anyone has a suggestion for a good ‘starting point’ (plates and pads) I’d be very grateful.

The polisher is a Makita clone. Digital speed control. And standard M? thread.

Paint is solid, just badly swirled. However, it is reacting to claying and cutting well. I just need something a bit more aggressive and easier on the ‘elbow grease’

Currently using Meguiars Ultimate Compound (as I had it to hand) and it’s doing OK

Thanks in advance

Stu

The 3m backing pads and the blue and yellow polishing pads. Or get the megs pads. They have been tested on the rotary for long time so pretty reliable.
