    Smile Buffing machine

    Does anybody know how to use this toy effectively, I applied the megatrends glass finish wax (rip off) with it and left to dry as stated for 3minutes. Obviously it was white chalky residue on car then changed pad to buff it off, it buffed of the wax but you could see the wax still on the paint as if it was under the paint a dullish look.
    Washed off and started again but tried doing the same but very thinly by hand using a fine cloth.
    Results the same, im at a loss.

    My mate says that I should always use the buffer with the pads wet otherwise it will reck me paint, but if I wet the wax surely will look rubbish.

    Please help my limited polishing knowledge.

    Get some specialist instruction before you end with a scary re-spray quote

    Failing that, get some decent applicators, a few bottles of Meguiars, a decent microfibre or 5 and leave the machines to the experts ..

    I always apply products so thinly you can just see a haze, unless its a paint correction, then apply as much as required

    chances are you will do more damage than good with it ..

    anything you cant remove with scratch-x / t-cut or the like, can only be removed with either new paint or a professional and his random orbiting cleverness..

    have you tried clay ? ( serious question )

    clay works on all paint types ... the dirt it took off mine ( star silver I think ) when I first used it was a sorrowful sight lol ..obviously the previous owner never washed the paint, never mind anything like wax or polish

    when you have washed it, rub your hand over the paint ( surfaces that face upwards are the ones to do ) if you feel dots, rough patches etc, you need to clay, then paint clean, polish wax seal etc ..if it already feels silky smooth, as well cared for paint should, then clay is not needed ..
