nikki11 Yes they do. I have a blue pad and don't know what grit(?) so before I possibly made another poor decision I went back, used my wax remover, washed with hot water and soap and applied the previously used cleaner/polisher, hand rub on, wax. This time I rubbed on by hand and machine buffed off but eventually my pad took on too much polish and I had to finish all by hand.
I took it out in the sun and voila (?) 98% of graffitti (?) was gone!
Thanks for your advise. I will try to find out how, first, next time. Dogs have come back home again!

cyclopsblown34 I'm thinking you should be able to get Meguiars or 3M foam pads where you got your polisher.

nikki11 Thanks. Are ther foam pads and then there are foam pads?

cyclopsblown34 Try a foam pad on the polisher with some swirl remover. I use Meguiars. Do it all in the shade and wax it pretty good in the shade after the swirl remover. Pull it out in the sun to check the finish and make certain it's as you wish it to be.

polishing new paint

I had a single stage paint job done and a month later decided to polish it with a buffer (first time) and Meguiars dual action cleaner polisher.
I put it on with the buffer (wool pad) and wiped it off by hand. At first the result looked fine, but later I realized there was a blotchy, cloud like mist look all over.
I couldn't polish it off by hand so I used wax remover which left a slight film. Then I used a cleaner type wax (by hand) to redo all.
It came out very nicely, until the sun hit it, then a horde of ghost like graffitti buffer lines made an unwanted appearance.
Looks lame!
Not happy!
Have I ruined my paint or is there a solution for my stupidity
