Okay, so I was out at a detail today for some regular customers and we were talking about stuff and they mentioned that they had an old buffer that they never use and wanted to give it me (Yeah, pretty sweet since I was thinkin of getting another one soon anyway)
However, it's a GG6 and I am completely unfamiliar with them. I did some research and found that I think it is an older model (although it has never been used and was still in a sealed box). This is what it looks like.
It's got a 6" inch backing plate which fits perfect on my 2.0 soft buff pads, but I am considering possibly adding the MF system to my repertoire and I know I need the 5" backing plate for these pads.
So, my questions for anyone who has used this machine.
1) As you can see, it has a little bit a different shape to it and there is no way simply attach a different backing plate (this backing plate has four screws in it that must be taken out to remove the plate instead of the traditional way most other machines hold the backing plate to the unit). Can this be modified to be able to use the Meguiars backing plates in any way, or am I stuck using Griots' backing plates?
2) If I have to use the Griots backing plates, is a 5" Griots plate okay to use with the MF pads, or should I stick with only using the MF pads with my G110v2? I'd like to be able to use this unit with the MF if possible as I feel like it's got a little more power and and might work a little better, but at the same time, should I then reduce the speed? What would the GG6 equivalent be of a 4 setting on a G110v2?
Thanks for any light that anyone can shed on this.
