Lol let's hope your still not on it by number 12. Your paint might have a few marks.

Lol come on now. Whenever I am intimidated by doing something new, I always just think to myself "This has been done by far dumber people than me. If they could, I can."

Use that mantra. Got me through grad school, it can get you through detailing a car.

Gotta install the swirls first to learn how to get them out. I thought the same thing.get a friend to donate their car to give it a practice run and you'll see it isn't that scary!!

After a 12 pack you won't care whether or not you left swirls.

what kind of buffer we talking about here? Something like a DA would be hardly anything to worry about. A rotary on the other hand... I would be careful and most definitely not try that tipsy or drunk
