    What buffer did you use?
    What wax, polish, etc...?
    To remove the haze, a polish should do, and since you said you "buffed" it could be that you didn't break the polish down enough. If what you used was just wax, and not polish, you could stripped the wax with some 50-50 IPA/Water mix, and re-apply, or get yourself some mother's , meguiars, or zymol cleaner wax, and that should remove the haze...

    IPA: Isopropyl Alcohol

    I used Meguiars cutter wax, then I hand waxed the car, should I use a polish with the buffer or by hand?

    Z-06 Goose thanks for the help. I just used Meguiars polish and it took a lot of the haze away, man I feel dumb. I was a little nervious when I saw the haze and didn't want to touch it any more without some help. What would you recommend next, waxing the car or am I done? I have never really waxed or buffed a car before just washed it. Thanks for the help.

    Just wax it. Some cut products require a machine to properly break it down. That's why it hazed your paint. I'm glad you got it fixed!
