Re: Buffing clear coat

A 3" pad will be a lot of work to buff a whole car but I would start with a flat panel and see if it gives the result you are looking for. Make sure you have a fine clear coat compound. Wash the car and then run your hand over the paint if you feel any dirt go over it with the clay bar. Then you are ready to try buffing, I like the foam pads I believe the lighter the color the finer the pad I use a yellow pad. Throw a sheet over the convertable top as dried compound is tuff to remove. If you do one panel the polish with a micro fiber rag you should be able to tell if you are getting the result you want. On the sharp edges just use a rag and some compound
