Buffing in tight corners up to body lines can be difficult. It’s these small details being polished well that make a big difference.
A key is to tape the surface you’re not buffing. But, it’s important how it’s taped.
- Place the tape just past the corner, so that the buffing pad at least has a chance to get down inside the corner.
- Place the tape close enough to the corner so that the buffing pad can’t touch the paint where it could burn through.
- Be careful not to place the tape too high where you’ll be buffing on the edge of the tape, this will burn a line into the paint.
- A lot of times, a 3” pad with sharp corners does the best getting inside corners.
- Follow up the 3” pad with a bigger 7” pad for a better finish.
