I thought pine tree sap ruined my Envision paint!

I made four passes as hard as I could push on a dual orbiter buffer the night before. Came out this morning and the only thing I could is the factory orange peel.

To get the scratches out I use a 6-8 inch DA orbital. Like this time it allows me to add some pressure when working on scratches. But one you can continue to buy bonnets for. Mine is either a Turtle Wax or Harbor Freight and a cloth bonnet.

The Turtle Wax DA orbiter has a 3,500 rpm operating speed.

Really wouldn't think that would be enough power to get the job done but that is very impressive. I remember someone gave me one at one point and I solely used it just for apply wax and glazes but left all the correction work for my GG 3" (small correction jobs, not full cars)

I think part of the trick to this was not letting it sit for too long since some people don't get to it right away. Norm, how long was the sap on till you started removing it?

I usually use the buffer just for that, applying a nice thin coat that is easy to remove too. But for anything scratches I cannot catch with my finder nail I will turn the buffer at 45 degree angle for extra pressure. Maybe it was the heat generated that helped.

I saw it the night before but it was dark out. So it got sun for at least one day to bake.
