Question Where to buy detailing supplies?

Hey, im looking to get my car ready for spring/summer or whatever season we might be getting next here in Alberta and i was looking to buy a good detailing kit from some place in Edmonton perferably. I was hoping to get a good random orbit polisher like the Porter Cable 7424 and an assortment of buffing pads and polish, detailing brushes etc.. Ive just started to look around and havent had much luck. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

What about Canadian Tire or Walmart, they have lots of that kinda stuff. As for it being high end equipment or not that I can't tell ya.

I'm pretty sure Crappy Tire doesnt stock the "Porter Cable 7424". But if you are in the market for a $25 oribtal polisher complete with pads (enough for at least one side of your car...) don't pass them up!

hehe

Try calling some body shops and ask where they get their supplies from.

yep canadiantire.ca does carry it, overpriced at $240, i did ask my local Canadian Tire sales person if they had it in stock, he said they could order it in as no local stores keep them in stock. I think i'll try asking around some detailing shops maybe get a lead on some decently priced equipment.

Its a bit of a long shot but did you try Gregg Distributing? They carry some hard to find stuff.

Back when I was looking for one I ended up going to the states from Coastal Tool. It includes the hook and strap pad with the 6" counter weight for $119US.
