Default Buffer?

My car got shat on while I was at work and was wondering if anyone has access to a buffer that knows how to use it and would be willing to buff my car. I would take it to a legit car wash place but I figured I'd ask on here first.

Actually, its from years of abuse I assume. I know how to wash cars, but havent taken the time to learn to use an orbital. Looks like soap got left on the car since then its been stained, then today someone sprayed shampoo on my car, which is for the carpet and floormats, and it had the same affect.

someone told me that they used carpet cleaner to remove something on paint.... probably pretty abrasive for auto paint. If it's for your 97, you might be able to do some light, LIGHT buffing. But if it's damaged and that old, you could easily strip the clear off with a buffer.

You might be better off, getting your clear coat repainted or using some sort of wax/polish that stays on your paint

If you saw my car you'd know the last thing it needs is a clear coat respray, it needs a whole new paintjob.

I have some Meguiars polish that Im gonna try tomorrow. If all else fails then I guess a detail is in order, or complete respray.
