First off, I did the roll on paint job, so understand what I'm going for (good and not great) and also that I had no facility to spray (single car garage in a condo, with no yard). I used oil-based Rustoleum industrial red.
I am letting the paint cure for a couple weeks, then plan on wet sanding with 1500 grit on a flexible sanding block to remove as much orange peel as possible. What comes next is my question.
I have a 6" dual action buffer but as I understand it, I really need a direct drive buffer to properly polish the paint after sanding. Looking at direct drive buffers, they seem to run anywhere between $60-$200.
I see that they make drill adapters for buffing pads (such as THIS
and that the main problem here is the ergonomics of the drill, it being difficult to handle. I have a right-angle variable speed cordless drill that runs 0-1,100 RPM. The ergonomics seem similar to a buffer, with about the right speed range. Should I just suck it up and buy a rotary buffer?
Here is the drill I have: C3 Drill
Or do you think that either the 6" D/A, or the drill kit will be "good enough" for what I am trying to achieve here?
