I have been reading and watching videos and i have Roberts video. My question is can i get the job done with a buffer or do i have to buy the orbital polisher too. The goal is what i call driver quality much better than factory but not polished so fine that the car scratches real easily. The biggest concern is no swirls.I am going to get airvantage sander i already have the buffer. I dont have a problem buying the polisher if i have too, but i cant help but think black car were being polished before these new orbital polishers came out. Thanks for any help

The Makita BO6040 it what you want in order to remove the swirls permanently. I don't sell it but I do use one. This orbital is mostly used in the "forced rotation" (locked) mode and makes quick work of swirls. It's pictured on Robert's video box.

You can also use a "glaze" that may hide swirls but it usually only lasts a short time before you have to do it again.
