Helpful Hints

Generally most parts are buffed with an up and down motion or side to side motion until the part is ready to be finished. An upward stroke, which is a motion that pulls the part upward against the rotation of the buff is more aggressive and is know as a cutting stroke. A downward stroke is a motion that moves the part in the direction of the rotation or towards the floor is a finishing stroke and will leave the part the shiniest. The downward stroke will also remove most compound haze and leave it the cleanest.

Don't mix compounds on buffs. Once a compound has been used for a buff, that buff is dedicated to that compound. Mixing compounds on a buff will result in a cloudy finish.
