Everyday car driving and parking make the car dirty and get all sorts of dirt, that is why it is important that we take care of our vehicle properly, so that it does not have any damage to the varnish and remain shiny.
Just then polishing and wax come to our rescue.
Instructions on how to polish a car
At the beginning, it is important to be aware of how much polishing experience we have or do not have.
If we are polishing for the first time, we must be aware that this is not a simple procedure and there is a possibility to remove the varnish from the car and then have to take it to the varnish afterwards.
Therefore, we must be very careful and follow the instructions below.
The first thing to do, when we want to polish a car with a buffer is to wash it thoroughly!
After that, you need to get the paste used in polishing the car, of course, there are more than one type.
Each paste type comes with an instructions manual, which is important to read carefully.
The paste is selected according to the color of the car.
With the paste it takes several towels or wadding, the effect is the same.
It is necessary to make circular moves using the above mentioned supplies, and thoroughly polish each section of the car with equal movements.
The car should be washed again after polishing. Only a completely dry car should be waxed.
This is only a simple way on how to polish a car, but, polishing is definitely more successful and better with a buffer!
How to polish a car with a buffer
Before you start, it is important that you know the details of each buffer so that you know how to use it!
Professional dual action polisher:
This is better type from the other rotary buffer types. It polishes in circle.
This model is more expensive because it spins in two different ways and is safer for beginners as well.The best model of this buffer have adjustable speed control.
They also use smart motors and the pads run at the same speed regardless of pressure. A buffer like this produces good results and leaves little room for car damage.
When you choose your right buffer, it would not be a bad idea to test your buffer on a neutral surface!
Rotary buffer types:
This kind of buffer is the most aggressive for your car, especially if you are not experienced in polishing.
The pad always turns in a circle an so it happens that after this buffer there are traces in the form of a circle left on the car.
5 Easy Steps to a Great Polish
Step 1: You need to start by polishing a large flat surface, piece by piece.
Step 2: A small amount of polish should be placed on the surface that you want to treat with the buffer, and then start cycling the buffer to get the product distributed on the pad.
Step 3: Speed and pressure should be harmonized, sufficient time should be taken for this process to produce the best results.
Step 4: After a certain part has been cleaned, a clean cloth or pad should be put on the buffer and now refill the places where there are residues of varnish.
Step 5: After there are no more traces of cleaning, more polishing results the final shine.
Wax the car after polishing
When we are finished with polishing a car with a buffer, we need to wax a car!
Waxing a car is done similarly to buffing except that much less pressure is used to set the wax.
This is, of course, because this is no longer a way of removing dirt, but a final touch on a clean car.
When waxing it is best to divide the surface of the car into the parts we do one by one, and when these are finished, wait a few minutes for the wax to dry and then wipe off any excess with a clean cloth.
If you you think that you are not skilled enough to buffer a car by yourself, you can always pay for professional buffing and polishing, only you have to be prepared for the price of this services, which can be very high!
Your car should be a reflection of yourself, but also, the feeling that you buffered an polished it by yourself, can be really fulfilling!
Good luck with whatever you decide to do, just be careful with your car!
