    Just got a polishing machine, but it came with several different coloured pads, blue/white/black/pink/yellow.

    Are the colours standardised for different tasks?

    If your using that on soft Honda paint then go easy, its a rotary polisher and less forgiving than a dual action polisher. Get a low cutting polish and start with the least aggressive pad and watch plenty of you tube videos

    Paul,

    For Honda paint I would use Fine, Soft and Very Fine. don't use the others at all as good as using a brilo pad. 81mDgwlLQyL._SL1500_.
