The foam pad will differ from vendor to vendor. But you will have a pad to buff, and a different pad to use with the polish / glazing / swirl remover or whichever you want to call it. Meguiars has Perfect-it buffing compound and Perfect-it glazing. Sand with 1000, polish it with a white foam pad, then after you get the look you want, go over it with a grey pad and glazing. The glazing removes the swirls that were left from buffing. Use low speed and keep moving avoiding any sharp areas or other places that might grab the pad. I pick up a variable speed buffer from Lowes for around $60 and it did a great job. Speed varies from 1-6. Not sure on what that converts to in RPM right at the moment though. If you are leary about polishing your tank right off, get your compounds, pull the car up to the garage, and give it a go on the hood until you get the feel of the equipment.
