Tie on polishing wool buff
The polishing wool buff should be used with an automotive polisher. Different polishes and waxes can be used with the buff. The buff is fastened onto a rubber backing pad with laces. Make sure the diameter of the polishing buff is the same as the backing pad's diameter.
It is necessary to polish a vehicle body panel when:
- The panel has been newly painted with a clear-coat.
- Shallow scratch marks need to be removed.
- The panel has suffered from oxidation.
- Swirl marks and hologram defects need to be removed.
The buff is washable after use if the polishing compound is soluble.

Steps to take when polishing a panel:
1. Preparing the panel:
- Sometimes a panel has fine over-spray left from spraying the clear-coat. This needs to be removed by lightly sanding with a fine abrasive paper. All over-spray need to be sanded out up to P1500 grit.
- The panel should be washed when all spray-finishing defects have been removed. Any dirt particles could cause scratch marks when polishing.
- Tight curves and ends of the panel should be masked-off to prevent the effects caused by point pressure. The polisher should always be used on flat surfaces.
2. Applying the polishing compound:
- A five rand coin amount of polishing compound should be applied to the buff. Switch the polisher to it's lowest speed setting.
- Switch on the polisher and gradually spread the polishing compound over the panel.
- Keep moving the polisher on the panel to have as little amount of pressure and friction.
- The polishing compound will remove the scratch marks caused by the P1500 sand paper and it will bring out an impressive gloss finish.
- Remove the masking from the panels and apply the polishing compound to a microfiber cloth. Hand polish (by moving your hand in a small circular motion) the tight curves and ends in the panels until the same finish is achieved as from the polisher.
3. Wash the panel when finished:
- Wash the panel after polishing to remove any residue from the polishing compound.
