Anyone have any sites that they purchase applicator pads from? Everywhere I've looked wants about $20 + shipping per pad, which I think is a bit excessive. My buffer only came with one pad, and that will not do.

sadly buffer pads get pretty expensive, if your serious about it they really only last 1-2 uses at most.

depending on the size and style of your buffer except to pay 8-30 dollars each

hmm.gif if I remember that is either a 6 or 7" pad, so it should be easy to find, but its still an orbital buffer right?

in my experiance, buffers suck ass, they are fantastic for rubbing in polish, and in extreme cases where your willing to lose a layer of clearcoat, buff out swirls etc. But for a final wax the pads just become caked way to fast.
