First time on any electric buffer and this takes the cake!

Just to say that this is the first time i've used a buffing tool so I totally did not know what to expect and if I was going to do it right but this thing is totally forgiving and gave me results beyond my expectations...
I had recently bought an abused VW and though the car itself was fine, the paint job was in dire need of attention... it had hard rubs and scratches around ... paint and overspray on certain panels... and I don't believe it'd ever had a wash in the last three years!
So having read up on car detailing... i decided the route of clay bar, compound, polish, wax... in that order. Everything that i used was Meguiars, mainly based on the reviews that their products had.
I decided to use get THIS particular DA buffer because I felt that I didn't want to spend too much as this was my first time and as a beginner, wanted something with a smaller head that would allow me to work in smaller spaces without overrunning the panel... This fit both those bills.
After the clay (totally impressed there too, first time for me on that also), i quick washed and wiped down the panels (i only did one at a time) and used the "Compound Power Pack" which is a different head and comes with ultimate compound... i found that for deeper scratches, if i hit it a couple of times, and let the rotation of the head / drill speed slowly work it's way over the area, that gets the scratches out for me. I had worried about the 'burn your paint' scenario but like i said, this unit is totally forgiving and let me work the same area slowly without heating up the panel (apparently warm to the touch is fine, hot is bad ... thats how you gauge if you are applying too much pressure or speed).
And once i felt that the results were good (ie scratches or swirls or marks were gone), i'd wipe it down and swap the head to the one provided with this unit (yellow) and used some polish and went over the panel again.
Wiped that down when done, and then applied a coat of Canubra wax...
I hope the photos show you how well it turned out, like i said, this is a first time for me so it may not be perfect, but it's a huge difference.
