Paste vs Bars?


The last two years I've polished our 1959 Tradewind with Nuvite, buffing wheels and cotton pads.

I see some folks using the 8" buffing wheels and hard polish bars that come in green, red, and white colors.

Are the bars better than nuvite?

Can anyone recommend a brand or good place to buy bar polish online? I'd like to give it a shot.

I started with Nuvite and switched to the Jestco products. The Jestco process was much faster for me and I think I was getting better results. I'm sure others will have different opinions, but I'm now a bar guy.

I use both. Bar and edge wheel works very well on and around window, door hatch frames, seams, ect. Pads and paste on the flats. Both work very well on a dewalt angle polisher. On the old rigs I do pitting is usually evident. The edge wheel with red bar does a pretty good job of smoothing these areas out. When using the edge wheel with coarse grit be careful of heat, use light pressure and low RPM. I use They have tools and compounds for anything you encounter and decent prices.
