Power Buffer Works Wonders

Just lettin everybody know I took a high powered industrial buffer to the hood and to the two black rear window exterior side panels on the weekend. Looks like the car was freshly painted. Mind you I had to wax the shit out of it after considering I buffed through a few layers of the factory paint. I mean this saved me a paint job. So if anyone wants to save some big money on a paint job look at investing into an industrial auto buffer. A little pricey but you will save money in the long run.

Sounds good, I know my paint could use a good waxing.
I think I'll go pick up a good buffer tommorrow on my day off.

I've been thinking of picking up a buffer for my car. Could anyone tell me if a buffer would help blend in the touch-up painting I have done (from catching a few rocks on the hood) with the factory paint? I did a fairly good job with the touch-up stuff, but if you stand closer than 10 feet it is pretty obvious where I filled in the rock dings.

Any advice?

Properly used a buffer can do wonders for your paint. However, a buffer in the hands of an amateur can ruin your paint job in a matter of seconds. IMHO buffing is best left to the professionals. If you want to "buff" your car yourself but not by hand I recommend a random orbit polisher. It's not a aggressive as a high speed rotory buffer, but you won't run the risk of severe damage to your paint either. The do a very nice job when used properly and regularly...
