My black F150 was scratched up from a couples deer hunting seasons going down too narrow trails. I used a high speed polisher at medium speed with a good quality wool pad and some Black Magic wax I had. It came out beautiful.

What Random Orbital do you have?? a Porter Cable?? I would hit it with Maguiers swirl remover and go higher up if you need more cutting power.. I personally use Mag 105 with a orange pad and then follow up with a Mag 205 polish on a black pad. then wax

i dont think ill need any cutting, because its only a 2011. so whats a good all around buffer pad for that?

Oh ok.. Then I would do this

-Wash with Dawn soap
- Clay Bar
- Swirl remover with a white pad
- Use a black pad with a liquid wax to apply
- buff off with buffing microfiber

Here are the pads that I like to use, on my Cobra..

Heres a few pictures of the truck. Pictures dont really make it look all that bad, but would like to clean her up to get rid of the new car itch.
