First, apply the #4 Heavy-Cut Cleaner to the finish. Outfit the rotary buffer (Harbor Freight is a good place to pick up an inexpensive buffer for a beginner) with the wool cutting pad and set it at a medium speed. Place the pad gently on the panel and tap the trigger several times and spread the compound around. (Just nailing the trigger will sling most of the compound off.) Next, use the leading edge of the buffer (think 3 o'clock) and move the buffer in a horizontal motion back and forth working your way down the panel. Once the compound has been buffed off and the area has reached a high luster, it's time to move on.
