Although a long process....the buffing should be done in numerous steps.I personally get **** about it,but the end result is well worth the effort.
1.Wash thoroughly with mild soap and water.
2.Wipe entire surfaces to be buffed with non-oil based adhesive cleaner.
3.Wipe away any "haze" left behind.
4.Do any paint touch-up and allow to dry.
5.Tape/Mask any trim which You have no desire to detail clean later.
"Never detail in Sunlight ! !"
6.Use a 2300 rpm variable speed buffer with a foam pad.
7.Start with a liquid rubbing compound (stay light but even left to right strokes in a small area...let the weight of the buffer do the work...don't push down hard...You'll burn through the clear coat,then paint).
8.Move to a medium grade compound repeating step 7.
9.Next to a finishing compound and repeat step 8.
10.Apply Carnuba paste wax , allow to dry then buff off at low speed.
11.Apply Carnuba paste wax , allow to dry , then remove by hand.
12.Detail to perfection using a spray detailer such as Mother's or Maquire's.
That's My 12 step program....
