Want to Borrow Random Orbital Polisher

Similar to Griot's G9. I have bad but not deep scratches on my GTI fender, and have the Griot's (velcro-backed) pad and the compound, but can't see laying out that much money for a single job. Can...

This is the stupidest thing they've done. It makes no sense and is so small you can't negotiate it even with just a Trailex, to say nothing of a bigger rig.

If the trailer has surge brakes, it's just tap into the tail lights (both of them, for turn signals). But if you need to hook in a brake controller, it's more complicated. The parts in the...
