I painted a few parts of my truck with SS black. I have a little orange peel and would like to get that fixed up as well as buff the paint. I only have access to one of one of those 10" buffer/polisher machines. I need some info on the steps and materials I am going to need to do this.

Thanks for any help

You need to level the surface by sanding with fine sandpaper the polish it with a rotary polisher and a decent polish. You can see some of the details HERE (http://www.autobodystore.com/rsw.shtml). This link talks about OEM paint but the process is relatively the same.

A 10" buffer/polisher will accomplish nothing. This are great for applying wax and little else.
