Question

Looking for my first polisher and like the Adam’s SK Pro 12mm Car Polisher with 3" backing plates and pads for tighter areas and motorcycles but concerned it may be too small for larger panels like hoods, roofs and sides of larger vehicles.  Can this polisher accept and utilize larger backing plates and pads?

It can be swapped but I would not do it. Too much wear on bearings with a 5.5" pad, vibration, etc. It is designed for a 3-4" pad. 

 

Something to consider is working panel by panel over time, even weeks to months. Believe it or not, Adam himself says it takes him 4 months to detail an entire vehicle, and his favorite machine is the 12mm/Mini so he uses that almost exclusively unless it's a big vehicle with larger, flatter panels. He will work on and coat one panel one day, then a week or so down the road do another, and so on.
