Section 9: Body Repair
A second and third application of compound may be required. Keep buffer moving over surface, this will help keep the surface cool. Clean compound residue off surface after each buffing operation. Do not continue to buff compound until dry.
Buff the surface of the body when dry. When all scuff marks have been buffed out the surface may still appear a little dull, if so, proceed to #10.
Install polishing pad #W-9006 on buffer (tan pad).
Spread #8232 polish on surface as in step #3.
Polish to a high luster or as required to match surrounding material.
Wipe clean with soft clean cloth; any dirt on cloth will mar surface.
