    I'm a big fan of do it once...do it right.
    So here are my thoughts.

    Exterior
    Washing:
    I use a small Ryobi 1,600 PSI 1.2 GPM Electric Pressure Washer
    MTM Hydro PF22.2 Professional Snow Foam Cannon
    2) CarPro Merino Wool Wash Mitt
    2) Grit Guard Insert

    Machine:
    RUPES Mark 3
    RUPES Mark 3 - BigFoot LHR 21
    RUPES 5" Backing Plate
    RUPES 5" Backing Plate
    I prefer the 5" backing plate and 5" pads on all my DA machines.

    Pads:
    Lake Country HDO Blue Cutting Pad - 5 1/2"
    Lake Country HDO Orange Polishing Pad - 5 1/2"
    CarPro Gloss Pad 5"

    Compound:
    Scholl Concepts Shock 2 Cut Extreme Compound - 16 oz.

    Polish:
    Scholl Concepts S30+ Nano Compound - 16 oz.

    Towels:
    10) CarPro 2 Face Multi-Pack (No Lint) 16" x 16" - Orange

    This should get you started...
    Other suggestions appreciated.

    Yepper, the Rupes 21, and the pressure washer/MTM Foam cannon are the big-ticket items.

    The Rupes 21 is the big one. Remember get the 5" backing plate then get all your pads in 5".
    I have about 12 different machines the Rupes 21 with a 5" bp is my go-to 90% of the time.
