A Question About Polishing Pads

Posted by Rick on November 8, 2001 16:02:12 UTC

Been reading about polishing pads and i am wondering if i should use them, I have a set that came with the kit, is this a good thing or should i just go with the pitch lap to polish...from what i've read the pads would be a bit easier,and maybe even faster,barring an imperfect finish, which must be fixed with the pitch lap, before parabolizing begins.... opinions please. Thanks
