Buffer tips

Ok so I got a nice cheap little buffer from wal-mart. Any tips on use. I used it once last year waxing my focus and I thought it just made a mess and I ended up taking off the wax by hand. Is the idea to use the buffer to put on wax/polish or take it off or both.

If it's a good sized random orbital buffer with soft pads, you can use it for both application and removal. If it's just a small one that only spins the pad, I would just use it to apply the wax.

Never stay in one place, keep it moving. It's common sense but people burn the paint still.

Is it the red/black one that was apx $20?

I posted a message a long time ago about asking if i should buy it but i got talked out of it because you can be more specific and do corners etc by hand...

do this and you should be just fine. If you have the buffer with the 3" pad then i would use it for removing the wax myself. It's alot easier to apply the wax by hand and you don't have to worry about getting all over the surfaces that you don't want it on if you do it by hand...
