As a second option check out Obsessed Garage in Lady Lake Fl. They've got some good options as well. I really like SONAX Cutmax compound and SONAX Perfect Finish polish, and I've found that on my Shadow Black I can polish it in one step with SONAX PF and Rupes yellow pads.
I'd stay away from rotaries, it's quite easy to burn clear coat off sharp, raised body lines and panel edges with these machines. The Porter Cables are quite nice for personal use, but there is also the option of larger orbit Dual Action machines. These have a longer throw / orbit and the idea is you can correct the paint faster (or more aggressively, if this is what you want to call it) per rotation of the machine because of this larger orbit compared to the smaller orbit Porter Cable and Torqx polishers. The importance of this is up to you, just wanted to point out another option. If you've got the dough, Rupes machines are pretty top notch. If you aren't interested in this, try the Rupes knock - offs like Shine Mate, MaxShine, Griots, Adams polishers. These should be around the same price as a porter cable, but will be a bit more than the CC Torqx.
Regarding pads, IMO Rupes yellow polishing pads for polishing are the best. They're quite versatile, can cut decent, and finish really well. Sounds like what your looking for in this situation is to put a machine to the paint and get a decent, scratch free result in one step - generally called a one step polish. I've always used Rupes yellows for this exact reason as they have a really surprising amount of cut ability for a polishing pad and leave a great smooth finish. Whatever you do, don't get sucked into thinking you need tons of different pads for different levels of cut and finish, you don't. You'll be fine with a compounding pad, a polishing pad, and maybe an ultra polishing pad. If your unsure, and willing, buy a few different branded pads to see which you'll like the most. You're extremely lucky to be in Florida as there are a lot of car care companies down there, so you can probably just walk right up to them and buy everything you need, maybe even get help from some serious pros.
If you don't want to one step and want to take the time to compound the car, the Rupes foam blue compounding pads are great, along with the Blue wool pads. I'd prefer the foam pads as they're a bit smoother feeling, but the wool pads cut a bit more. Follow with the Rupes yellow pads to polish. Don't be afraid to compound, DA's are uber safe on paint. Just don't compound the car once a month and you'll be fine, lol.
Regarding liquids, SONAX Perfect Finish is awesome, smells kinda funky. It's pretty oily, cuts and finishes well, will allow you to one step the car, and wipes off super easy. As far as I know Meguiar's Ultimate compound and polish are based off of their professional M105 and M205 liquids, which at this point are outdated. Not saying they're bad or undesirable, but there's just stuff with more modern abrasive technology on the market that is less fussy and funner to work with. If you're compounding before polish, I'd recommend SONAX CutMax for the same reasons, but tons more cut for correction. If you want something nice smelling, the Rupes DA compound and DA polish are the best smelling liquids I've ever used.
Not sure about the Meg's Iron Remover, but I'm certain you can use CarPro IronX on PPF, as long as it doesn't dry on the car or is used in the sun. even if it dries, just rewash it with your soap and you should be fine. If this step is troubling you feel free to skip it, it isn't as important as claying the car to get all the gunk'd up crap off.
Regarding claying, I'd recommend the Nanoskin Autoscrub fine grade. you don't have to worry about dropping it, folding it, and I've never had marring issues. Any clay lube will work. This is the most important step for paint correction, so just pay attention to the sections you've done, stay methodical and organized, and check your work frequently. The Autoscrub works pretty fast.
With all that said:
Meguiar's Iron Remover / IronX / Opt Ferrex
Nanoskin Autoscrub and whatever Clay Lube
Your machine of choice
Rupes Blue / Yellow pads
SONAX CutMax / Perfect Finish (or Rupes DA compound and polish if smell's important)
Your Wax or Coating of Choice
If your planning on one stepping the car, you probably won't get every defect out and I'd recommend any wax. I use Meguiar's M27. If you want to go in and compound the whole car and polish it to get most defects out, I'd recommend a coating. Don't be afraid of coatings, they're nothing difficult. I'd recommend Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light + Gtechniq Exo V4. Gtechniq CSL pretty much wipes on and off, and Exo follows it after a few hours. Just make sure you read up on proper prep, application, and curing for coatings as it's a bit different than waxing a car.
Make sure you set aside money for maintenance washes to keep the car looking as good as after the wax. Welcome to the obsession, lol.
