Step 1, Wool

Step 1 of the buffing process is using a wool pad.  The better this first step is, the better the end result will be.
  • Spend the most time in this step. 
  • Wool pads are what takes all of the grain out of clear coat. Don’t move on until the paint looks exactly as it needs to. 
  • Slow speed.  Keep the buffer running under 800-900 rpm’s 
  • Menzerna compound. 
  • Lighting: Fluorescent tubes work the best, or any similar type of soft lighting.
