Polishing Pad Kit Recommendations

Do any of you guys recommend a Pad Starter Kit to get going with my 6inch Porter Cable 7424? I'm looking to ex the swirl marks, polish, then wax. I'm guessing you need different pads for each step.....maybe a link if you got one. Thanks again.

I bought this one and it works well. I got too confused with some of the other brands that have a lot of different types of pads. The polishing pads would be used with a polish or cleaner like Mothers power polish, Zaino zpc or Klasse AIO. The finishingpad is to apply wax or sealer but I do this by hand.

Propel Pads from www.exceldetail.com send Patrick an email he is a real nice guy. Lake country pads, and Edge pads are highly recommended but i dont have any experience with them. I have a set of Lake Country's still waiting to try out.

Meguirs are nice pads too.

Remember to buy the right backing plate.
