Using the car DA polisher on granite surfaces. Anyone done this?

Looking to improve the shine on my granite kitchen worktops.

Has anybody used the car DA polisher for this?

If so, what did you use to get that factory shine?

Got a A4 piece of black granite ready to test on first before attempting the kitchen tops.

Any recommendations welcome..

Go for it with a medium polishing pad and a compound with a little bit of cut, ie Menzerna 3500 or 3800 av used the DA to polish all sorts of things from stainless steel to a Subwoofer

Thanks for the suggestions.

@jassyo06 Did think to use car polish or wax (like Menzerna etc.) but these are for car paint and not sure how it would take to granite. (being a food surface as well)

@Tashfeen Those links lead to some old posts which steered to 'Paste wax for Stone' which I never know existed.

Looking now at Bellinzoni Special Preparation paste wax for polishing granite, being a paste should be okay to use a DA to buff on and off.

Use a car polishing paint "Compound " it will add gloss to the granite or a specific granite paste .. Your only wanting to add gloss are you not

Having a nose about and this caught my eye. I have a piano gloss black REL subwoofer that has some really fine scratches . Been thinking about putting the DA to work on it but I've read that somewhere on the interweb about someone using car polish and the solvents ruined the paint .

Any suggestions ? I've read a small amount of basic plain white toothpaste is good ......

Well you'll be glad that your a member on here cause l have the answer to your swirled subwoofer finish lol
I got a brand new T9i in Feb and straight out of the box it was covered in fine scratches,..... So l got the mini Flex out and using a polishing pad and some Menzerna 3800 brought the finish back as it should have been in the first place
REL use automotive paint and lacquer for their subs mate so treat it like it was car paint

Very nice . Big fan of Pioneer amps. Wish I'd give with Pioneer on my last upgrade . Got some elastomer feet for me T9 a couple of weeks ago . Turned it into a different animal . Cost me £60 but room rattle is gone . If recommend you take a look mate . Do a Google search for " SVS Soundpath Isolation Feet" .
