    Just want to clarify. Using Optimum Polish and #16 wax

    Orange cutting pad for polish and Black finishing pad for wax? Or should I use the White Polishing pad for polish and black for wax?

    You can use all three pads with Optimum, just go with the level of aggressiveness you need. You can even use all three pads and basically, OP will act like a compound, polish and a finishing glaze.

    Always use a finishing pad with a pure wax.

    Whatever pad works. I honestly can't tell you because I can't see the scratches, I don't know how hard or soft your paint is and I don't know what your buffing technique is. Start light and work up as needed. That is what I do.
