    In the past I just used to clay & wax by hand. I recently decided to give my truck a little more TLC...

    Bought today:
    Optimum No Rinse
    Clay Magic Clay
    Porter Cable 7424 Random Orbital Buffer
    Porter Cable Backing Plate.
    6" Counter Weight
    6" Lake Country Yellow Cutting Pad
    6" Lake Country Orange Light Cutting Pad
    6" Lake Country White Polishing Pad
    6" Lake Country Blue Fine Finishing Pad
    6" Lambs Wool Hook & Loop Polishing Pad
    Meguiar's #9 Swirl Remover
    Meguiar's #83 Dual Action Cleaner/Polish
    Clearkote Vanilla Moose Wax-Hand Glaze
    Mwguiar's NXT Tech Wax

    Is there anything I should've bought instead?

    nah, you did fairly well for a noob. doubt you'll need the yellow pad, or the wool pad.

    Looks fine to me.

    Only other product I would have added is Clearkote's Carnauba Moose.

    I have a black truck with swirls and a few scratches. Do you think the orange pad would be good enough?

    the usual advice is to start white and then orange if white won't cut it. I'll go ahead and throw out there start orange, then yellow if it's not working. yellow's pretty harsh and in my experience holds a lot of product.
