The second step is to switch up to a waffle pad and apply #1 Medium-Cut to the finish. However, before any compound is applied be sure the area has been cleaned with a micro-fiber cloth, and it is free of any Heavy-Cut compound. From there, buff the surface just like before. The third and final step of buffing is to hit the area with #3 Machine Glaze. Again, be sure the area is cleaned of any previous compounds, and switch up to a new, designated waffle pad. Always be sure to use the same waffle pad per designated compound.
