Dont mean to revive an old thread, but Ill be rattle can painting my car this weekend and so far Im as ready as I can be...only problem though is I dont have the money for an orbital buffer and theres no rental places around that has them (theres a POSSIBLE place currently) 

Anyway, I can get through the primering, sanding, and painting just fine Im sure.  But whats something I can do instead of using the buffer and trizac 3M stuff?  Also, if I do get a hold of the buffer, you mention its called "color sanding".  I plan on 2toning my car and was wondering if the colors would run together if I buffered in the spots they meet.

Any and all help is appreciated, thanks
the colors shouldn't run together. I had my fender two toned and buffed it and it looked great. Make sure you give the paint a few days to completely dry before attempting to polish. If you can't get ahold of a orbital buffer ur not gonna get the same results I got. I tried using a polisher/waxer, one of those kragen  ones, it didn't do nothin. You could still see the dullness from wetsanding. The main problem with not using the right buffer is the pad. The foam 3m pad is the only way to go. The waxer/polisher only comes with a wool and waxing cotton pad. A real buffer will pay for itself eventually if you need to buy one, you'll be buffing everything haha. Go to www.autobodytoolmart.com they have killer prices on the pads and the backer plates for the pads. If you need a budget buffer go to www.harborfreight.com. Any other questions just let me know.

Lol for sure.  I just got to work this morning after painting the car all weekend.  It looks like hell right now sadly.  I think it turned out alright, but itll need a lot of sanding and love and clear coats later on...just didnt have time this weekend to do it.

I appreciate your help buddy, hopefully Ill have something presentable soon, lol
