Exterior Polishing Question

What kind of tool can I use to polish trim, windows and small hard to get to areas. The 7 in. Buffing pads are a bit too big for some areas. I bought some 4 in. X 1 in. Buffing pads for that purpose. I tried to used a small air tool, but it bogs down toooo much! Thanks!

Small Buffing Kit

I used a buffing kit that included a number of different size wheels and shaped buffing tips. They could be chucked right in my dewalt drill. I also used the dremel tool with their attachments with limited success.

A Dremel or Foredom tool work great...or just the attachments for them in a drill. I also used q-tips & just my finger with a cloth around delicate areas like emblems that could break.
