I would recommend doing a you tube search and watching people actually use a buffer. Tons of great videos on there about it.

Also, it doesnt matter if its SSAU or BC/CC, it will still buff the same.

Take your time and stay away from ridges and edges. Dont run the buffer at high speeds and keep it moving all the time.

Watch some pros do it on video is the best advice I can give.

also check out JamesFreddy on youtube, he has an awesome video on buffing. he's been trained well, is still humble enough to learn new things, and has his own procedures.
