Go to your local professional auto paint store and have them hook you up. There are lots of great brands. Do you have a variable speed 7" buffer?

Yes I do but the one vehicle is in like new condition. Should I use a buffer on that? The other needs a serious deep restoration wax on white Tundra.

I'm no expert on car finishes, but yeah I wouldn't buff a nice paint job with my mediocre skills, but I easily made a 20yr old red paint job pop with the guidance of my local paint shop. I used two stages of polish with the variable speed buffer and took my time buffing.

Carnuba is thick and tougher to apply but holds longer. I like Ice claybar then Ice wax as its easy to apply and leaves the finish like glass.

This guys stuff is all really good.

BTW the wax is for shine or depth of shine but the sealer is the protection. Neither of which normally needs a buffer to apply. However if you're trying to clean the paint and remove some scratches you need a cutting product. Go with something from this line...

Oh and now you need a machine but you didn't ask about those so I'll leave that alone

A orbital buffer will be used for a older car that the paint has oxidation. You will use a cleaner wax for that, liquid or paste. For a newer car use any carnuba wax. I use Mothers. Be careful because Walmart only sells the mothers cleaner wax. It is in an almost exact looking can as regular mothers carnuba wax that I purchase at advanced auto. Do not use a buffer on a newer paint job.

Also they make waxes with different amounts of pumice to get scratches and swirls out with a rotary buffer

I just want to mention it is a 2004 Jeep with only 31k miles and was kept in a climate controlled garage. So the paint is in great condition. Just want to make it shine and protect the paint.

Use to be a painter we only used 3m and I have always stuck to that. They make different grits depending on how much oxidation you have.

When you are serious about sine... Their best wax is 95 dollars for a can. I highly recommend the training DVD
