Default First 'leg1t' detail with buffer

Wow, I love the instant similar threads feature! It should save a lot of time searching.

It didn't really help me with my basic questions though. I want to perform my first polish and wax using an orbital buffer. I've recently clayed and waxed the car, so i shouldn't have to re-clay.

So, after washing it what is the next step? How do I put my buffer to use? I am on a looow budget.

Edit: My 2002 Sedona Red Pearl still looks pretty sharp, but it is def showing signs of age.

You squirt polish on, put the buffer up to the car, and turn it on.

Yes, but as far as polishing/compounding is concerned you don't actually put it on and wipe it off right? You would just use the proper cutting pad and work it in with the buffer until it dries and dusts off? Im guessing you would only need a bonnet to remove Wax not compound?

Actually a really good video for someone who never used a DA Polisher before.
