Use a good 3/32" X 6" DA like the AirVantage with a hook and loop pad.

Since this is your first time I'd recommend using 3M's 1500 Finishing Film DRY along with an Interface Pad.
Sanding dry allows you to SEE exactly what you're doing so that you don't sand too much or too little.

After you go over it with the Finishing Film switch to 3M's 3000 Trizact and use it wet to remove the 1500 scratches.

Once you sand and polish your vehicle using this method you'll never do it by hand again. :)

If you want to purchase the tools and materials from me give a call and I'll make sure you get the correct amount for the job. 1-888-485-5008
