With the nicer weather coming i would like to buff out my truck to eliminate small scratches and blemishes in the paint. I have never done this before and i was wondering if you guys new of any good products i can buy locally. Also if you knew of any methods or things to be careful of while doing this would be greatly appreciated. Also can i buff over the pin strip stickers that go down the side of the truck? Thanks.

Cant go wrong with Mother's products. If you are going to buff it to remove scratches i would clay bar the truck before i put a buffer on it.

Wash
Clay bar
Light compund
Cleaner wax
Polish wax
You can go over pinstripes just dont bear down on it.

I used an old craftsman orbital buffer I borrowed from a buddy worked pretty good. Unfortunately I don't know how to post pics or else I would.

I buy a lot of stuff from griots garage. They have everything you can think of. Stuff is a bit spendy but it is all amazing.

I have been giving some serious consideration to investing in a dual action buffer. I hear a lot about the bad things that can happen with these things. That being said I've seen the positive results a buffer can make.

I have been told to be really carefully with the uglier grinder like machines. The machine I used you would have to be trying to burn through also a little water goes a long way.

I've watched hours of detailing videos, much like the hours I've spent learning about this darn 6.0. I think I'm more comfortable with the buffing than the wrenching.
