This Apex Customs Karate Kid 2.0 DA Polisher 8mm Enthusiast's Kit contains:

  • The Karate Kid 2.0 random orbital polisher
  • Apex Customs Clarity Medium Polishing Compound - 500ml
  • Apex Customs Clarity Fine Finishing Compound - 500ml
  • 6 inch Polishing pad
  • 6 inch Finishing pad
  • Apex Customs AmazeBuff Microfibre Towel 

The Karate Kid 2.0 is our entry level random orbital polisher designed from the ground up. Featuring an 8mm throw with a standard 5” backing pad, this polisher is perfect for correcting and polishing. The M8 female screw on the shaft of the polisher also provides the flexibility to mount other backing plates.

Dual action random orbital polisher rotates through the momentum created by the high speed orbital motion. As there is no direct link between the rotations and orbit, this makes dual action random orbital polishers the safest tools to use for beginners but also enables effective paint correction.

Please note that 2 spare carbon brushes are included.

The AmazeBuff microfibre towel comes from the friendly part of Korea.

The extra long piles enable it to capture more product in each fibre and is perfect for the removal of excess wax and detailing product from the surface of your car without saturating quickly.

It is quite simply best in class and will cut down on your detailing time significantly whilst providing that glossy streak-free finish with minimal repeating strokes.

Towel dimensions: 40cm x 40cm

Factors are based 1 lowest (gloss /cut) to 10 highest (gloss/cut)

Our quality high pack German foam pads are the best you can find on the market.

The 6 inch Yellow polishing pad has a medium density foam suited for slight to medium paint correction. It is used after cutting to remove heavy swirl marks created when cutting.

The 6 inch White finishing pad is ideal for the application of fine jewelling type finishing polishes after general polishing to bring through that gloss and new car shine.

    Great results for a 1st timer

    1st time using any polishing tool. Great results bringing back very dull white paint on my sisters car. I bought the Apex kit with the 2 step process - great kit for the 1st time and have already stocked up on more detail products.

    So glad I bought from the detailstore, the range is quality and the info pages are great!
