Need some help Buffing.
Alrighty, was hoping to be able to take care of all of this myself but I dont want to mess the paint.
I bought a 2006 Nissan Xterra from an abandoned vehicle auction to replace our aging Jeep (well its only 4 years newer but only has 40k miles on it) and it was COVERED with scratches. Whoever owned it last had done some modifications to fit it for off-roading so I assume theyre mostly from branches, brush, and shit. I got a buffer for christmas and havent had the chance to use it since I sold the Mustang. Its some cheapo no-name brand but its better than nothing. Bought the following to use on it:
Hex-Logic 6.5" Yellow Pad
Hex-Logic 6.5" Orange Pad (x2)
Hex-Logic 6.5" White Pad
and a pack of microfibers.
I originally bought just the orange and yellow pads with the V36 and V38 but they just weren't cutting enough because of the extent of the scratches. The V34 w/ Yellow pad is getting rid of the most of it but theres still some that youll see in the pictures. Idk how much I can buff. I dont want to go through the clear coat or anything like that. Im pretty happy overall with the difference and dont expect EVERYTHING to come out but want to make sure Im not going to damage anything.
First 2 are just loading the thing up, 3rd are before ANY buffing, 3-4 are after hitting it with the V34 w/Yellow and Orange and then the V36 with an Orange. Theres still some orange peel look to it if it helps. Not too much but some, I couldnt get a picture of it though.
