I am going to second and third many of the comments listed above. First, if you can catch a sratch with your finger nail then buffing is most likely not going to resolve it. I also stress that before you buff the car, you need to clean and perform a full clay bar process in order to remove any imbedded containiments.
Then you can buff with compound and polish with a DA polisher or if you are more experienced a rotary machine. I will first say that Croftgate does have a two step compound and polish that is awesome. I will also say that Meg's 105 and Meg's 205 are great products as well. Depending on the surface, you can use a white pad on a DA polisher with Megs 205 and if you need to then you can step up to Meg's 105 followed by Megs 205. ALWAYS start with the least aggresive correction process. You can use a black polishing pad after the correction process is complete. I am always happy to add my thoughts and comments and if you need more info on Croftgate products feel free to PM me.
