As of 2020 Rupes is discontinuing the DLX kits in favor of the BLX kits, once all DLX kits are gone they won't be coming back!

I know exactly what you are thinking because I was thinking the same thing.  "I wish I could just buy the tool and the stuff I know I'm going to use without all the extra to save myself a bunch of money." 

Now that I'm a distributor and have access to all the individual parts, I thought I'd sit down and crunch the numbers to see if it was viable to create an Obsessed Garage specific kit.  I spent about an hour configuring and eliminated all the extra stuff I know I don't use.

The result of my configuring and re-configuring?  I can assure you, even if I was able to sell RUPES product below their MAP protected pricing and offer it at extremely low margins, then eliminate half of the accessories that come in this kit, it still adds up to almost $800.  So there is no question this is the best way to buy the Nano.  Now that we've answered that question, should you spend $600 for such a specialty tool and all of its required accessories?  I think after you've gotten a 15MKII and the LHR75E Mini, this is the next tool you should get.  So my answer is yes.

This may sound counterintuitive , but as I continue to improve my polishing skills, I find myself using the Nano and the 3" Mini more and more often.  Edgework and hard to reach places are where this tool shines.  I have found it to be a must have to fully correct all surfaces on any of my cars and trucks.  

Here is what is included in the kit:

  • iBrid Nano Long neck:  This includes the black plastic shroud that protects the counter weights for your orbital attachments. 
  • BIGFOOT Premium Tool Case:  This makes the kit feel special.  I like how it keeps all the small parts and pieces organized in 1 spot.  It has a handle and shoulder strap.
  • AC-DC adapter:  This allows you to operate the machine through a power cord.  I never use this, but it's nice to have as a back-up to keep your work moving.
  • 2 - Rechargeable Batteries:  The Nano runs for about 25 minutes on a single battery's charge.  The charger takes 20 minutes to charge a battery.  You get 2 of them, so you should be able to keep swapping when you are in the middle of a polishing project.
  • Charger
  • 1.25" Plastic Backing Plate:  This is what I use 95% of the time.
  • 2" Plastic Backing Plate
  • 6 - 1.25" Blue Foam Pads:  I rarely use these, but they would be for use with a more aggressive polish/compound for cutting and scratch removal.
  • 6 - 2" Blue Foam Pads
  • 4 - 1.25" Yellow Foam Pads:  This is what I most often use with Sonax Perfect Finish.
  • 4 - 2" Yellow Foam Pads
  • 150ml ZEPHIR (Coarse) Polish:  This is the compound for more aggressive defects.
  • 150ml KERMIK (Fine) Polish:  This would be the finishing polish.  It can't hurt to try them.
  • Attachment Wrench:  This is what you would use to install and tighten the 3 different attachments below.
  • Rotary Function Unit:  The is the little green extension.  You gain a ton of control using this attachment while working on edges.  Don't use with microfiber.
  • 3mm Orbital Attachment:  Blue small dual action random orbit generally used for the sanding discs. 
  • 12mm Orbital Attachment:  Red larger dual action random orbit for use with wool or microfiber cutting.  I most often use the tool with this attachment.
  • Sanding Backing Plate (foam interface)
  • 10 - 2000 Grit Adhesive Backed Sanding Discs
  • 10 - 3000 Grit Adhesive Backed Sanding Discs
  • 1.25" Horsehair Brush:  I've never used either brush, but they are handy for interior work.
  • 1.25" Nylon Brush
  • 4 - Microfiber Towels:  Nothing special here.  I used them as scrap clean-up towels.
  • Instruction Manual and Warranty Card
