Yes I agree with what you said.
But you said you used the white pad to put the wax on and used orange pad to do your final buffing.

I thought for final buffing pad should be less aggressive than the white pad which could be black, blue or red.
The Yellow pad is more aggressive than the white and would take of the product and not shine the product.

We may be talking the same thing but it all depends on finesse and technique as per the video.

See my attached doc.

Bamabob... I have heard that the aircraft cleaner is really good to clean and wax, but how effective is it in removing scratches and swirl marks left by previous buffing?

Sorry for the confusion. We agree. I use the white for the cleaner wax and (didn't say that I ) then use black for final wax. Use orange if I need more cutting than white gets.

If anyone here wants a written procedure for removing swirl mark I have written one up so I don't forget.
This is for a Porter Cable 7424XP buffer that has a speed setting of 1 to 6.
It is in a general format and designed just as a reference in technique.
Your buffer or wax product may have different instructions.
See Word Document below.

Here is a great video just to hear and see the technique used.

Mckees and polish with Porter Cable. You don't have to wax it all at once, you can do a section at time.

FOR SURE!
Thanks, I do plan on accomplishing this over a 7 day period if the weather is good and I can find some moveable scaffolding.

We are using the same Zymol car wash and wax as I use on my Corvette. Have not seen swirls yet, but then coming from the car business, my father always said never buy a dark colored car, first was job you see swirls. Oh and we are using a machine, not hand

I read to be sure and use 100% cotton to buff. The ones that have polyester in them will eventually leave swirl marks, even if they do not show up at first.
