    Need some help with polish.

    I have done some work on the old girl and everything I look up on what to use after painting is to buff clear coat. The problem is it is on the back corner of the roof and down the side of the channel. If I use a buffer (which I don't have) I am worried I will burn through. I am far from being a professional. What should I use to polish / buff? Is it just a cut polish?

    I may be to late to reply,
    However I use Menzerna Polish : http://menzernapolishes.com.au/products/polishing/

    Id recommend PF2400 to polish,
    Then SF3500 to refine the paint.

    As for burning through the paint, work small patches of the panel at a slow speed
    Moving over the same area slowly about 6 times, wipe off after this, inspect the paint and if your happy move onto another area of the panel.

    I suggest doing it in a cool shaded area as the panel can heat quite a bit and you dont want to burn your new paint.

    It can be done by hand, however it will take longer for the polish to break down

    But it would take much time to polish with hands, not a better idea, but good and interesting work with hands...
    Keep calm and carry on
