    Welcome to the site!

    Your ZO6 does not have delicate paint. The clear on it will be hard, and can be difficult to work on due to the hardness.

    I`m not familiar with the machine you have.

    I would look at Meguiar`s M105/205 M110/210 or similar. You will need to get `cutting` and `polishing` pads at the minimum to achieve the best results on your Vette. I like Lake Country Force Hybrid pads.

    Hope this helps you, good luck with your Z and have fun!

    I will offer another option from what Scott advised - check out the Rupes pads & polishes. A few blue wool pads (aggressive), a few yellow wool pads (less aggressive), a few yellow foam pads (finishing), plus the `blue` and `yellow` polishes and you should be set for most paints.
    I recently used these pads & polishes to remove a few years of car show blemishes from a 1912 race car hood (single stage paint).

    As Scott said Corvette paint is very hard (he and I know - we both polished his Z06!), so you will want thinner pads for a random orbital polisher. I have used micro-fiber pads on Vettes in the past, but the new wool pads work better and run cooler.
