legitimicy?

Guys,

Initially thought of posting this in the funny section then read uploaders comments.
is there any truth behind the comments?



"in the time it took an average person to move the buff 2 foot and lets just say the pad spun 16 times from from 0ft - 2ft. If you actually move the buffer faster obviously the pad wont spin as many times unless u actually increase the the rotary speed. GET IT! p.s this is the third of a five stage cut & polish (NO Silicone) It amazes me to see so many "detailers" who dont have the balls to cut & polish like this because if u have experience & know what ur doing, the result will surprise u."

He throws that around like a builder with a grinder. Off th paint, on the paint, bet he flies over door edges like that with wool and compounding pads as well. Sticks it in the vents with the backing plate all exposed. Not to be reproduced IMO

He really ought to slow down, at that rate he won't be able to charge as much money if he's on an hourly rate.

You've seen the £5 special car wash, well now you've witnessed the £5 paint correction.

Of course he's done a proper job - you can see the shine
