Default Buffer, Cleaner Wax, and Wax Questions

I just bought an orbital buffer, some liquid cleaner wax, and some gold class. Does anyone have any tips on using buffers?

Thanks,

Use the buffer to remove the wax with polishing compound, and switch to Liquid Glass. No buffing required. Sell you buffer to the next newbie to introduce himself.

It'* a random orbital buffer right? Striaght up orbitals can leave patterns in your paint if they're held in one place too long.

The FULL detailing in steps would be like this for older paint.

1. Wash with dish soap (strips wax right off, only do it when you want to strip all wax)
2. Clay Bar
3. Polishing compound (i used Meg'* Deep crystal polish)
4. Wax, wax wax.

Be sure you have lots of extra bonnets im assuming its an orbital buffer 10", have lots of extras theyll streak and smear if you dont change them, leaving a hologram style smudges everywhere
