I bought a Dewalt 7" buffer. It has adjusting speeds from 600 to 1800 rpm. I have three different pads. Cutting, buffing, and polishing pads. I start cleaning each area to be buffed with Carb. Cleaner. I spray on and wait about 10 seconds and wipe clean. Then I am using a 3M product Rubbing compound. Apply the compound in counter clockwise fashion and then buff at 800 rpms with cutting pad. I will do this horizontal first time. Repeat vertical movements using 1400 RPM Then hit with buffing pad on time using polishing compound and then once with the finishing compond and polishing pad. Remove any compond or debri from the pads on the treated area. Waxing to seal the paint.
The buffer was about four hundred bucks. Four hundred in componds and pads. Hours of hard work to return this paint. The shields had a clear coat to capture most of the neglect. The cab side has been the most difficult as it set exposed in a hay shed. The white paint appears to be one coat and can be wiped off cleaning it. I will prepare the metal and repaint.
