    I guess it would work, but I wouldn't want to introduce any of those circular swirls.

    Just going by wnat I've been told in the past. I always apply polish in long strokes and use a circular motion for the wax.

    I could be wrong of course.

    Depends whether it is a high speed polisher or a low speed polisher.

    if its a random orbital you will be fine esp. since i'm guessing that autoglym stuff is more of a scratch filling rather than cutting polish. let the weight of the buffer and the product do its work - don't apply pressure.

    buff off by hand and note you should never use a circular motion as any micro marring will be visable from all angles. using a back and forward motion following the wind-flow patterns over the car.

    go see autopia.org for good detailing forums and how to's.
