So I have a ford ranger I recently purchased and am looking to buff. The front end is oxidized. I have been researching buffers. I understand many people really like the DA buffers. I have never used one. how well does it work on vertical surfaces? The ranger has a bead or crease running down the entire side.Will i be able to reach that crevice with a DA sander? i tried posting pics but it just comes up like this .

I find the rotary buffer works best for me.

A DA (dual action) buffer and a DA sander is two different things.
The Da sander can be used as a buffer but will be slower than a regular buffer.
Most DA sanders are air operated and use a lot of air,
you need a large compressor to run them.
A electric buffer works really well.

(It's not custom painting-it's custom sanding)
