Pads!

Know this is going to be a repost more than likely but>>>.

What buffing pads do you use for each step... I have the mequires three step kit, I've heard so much about wool ,foam and terry pads...just want to get it right...also maybe a few tips on buffing...I have a [email protected] orbital 7" and my car is White....I know there is better waxes out there but for now I will have to go with the mequires...

check out http://www.autopia.org/ you will get all you need to know.

Wool is for severe damaged paint and Ive never known anyone to use a terry pad.

I use a finishing foam pad all the time unless the paint is in really bad condition.

what RPM does that spin? You need a high RPM to really make buffing worthwhile
