Wet sanding and buffing trick
If you have a lot of wet sanding and buffing to do wet sand the ride then pull it out in the sun for at least a couple of hours (remember UV light and heat flow solvents). When you are ready to buff pull the ride in and let the metal cool to room temperature before you begin buffing. This will literally change/flow a 1200 grit scratch to a 1400 or 1500 grit scratch which obviously means less buffing.
If you only have a 1/4 panel to do with say a nasty color like black you can put a heat lamp on the panel for 15-20 minutes @ 24". Once again let it cool then buff it.
