My daughter washed her car at the beach last summer and (unintentionally) used a sponge that had sand in it! After it dried, she realized that there were a lot of scratches all over her car. They don't appear to be very deep because my fingernails don't "catch" when I run them across the scratches.
My wife gave me a Porter Cable 7336SP for Christmas so I can use it to buff out the scratches. What products and pads would you suggest that I use to restore her paint. Her car is clear coated red.
I live in Massachusetts, so I'll have to wait until spring to do anything, but any advice you can give me now would be appreciated. Thanks for your help.

You might want to check out <a href = "http://bimmer.roadfly.org/bmw/forums/detailing/forum.php?postid=1430487&page=1" target = "_blank">this link to a little "how-to" that I wrote a while ago</a>. It should give you a good "starting point".

Let us know if you have any questions after that; I'd probably start with FI-II and a Yellow foam cutting pad, followed by SMR and a yellow foam pad, finished with a glaze (on white pad) and a wax.<br>
