Aye! Use a finishing pad and a light cutting polish (e.g. Poorboys SSR1) and see how it works..

If the car's been washed/clayed, it's impossible to damage the paint with a Dual-Action jobbie.

Once you got the hang of it, go for more abrasion in the pad and the polish until you get the cut you need.

Always use the mildest combo' that does the job.
