How/What do I need to buff awkward areas

I bought a das 6 pro a few years back and I'm getting on ok but I went to buff a 4x4 today and around the boot there is no nice flat panels, between badges and wipers and odd shaped I don't see how it's possible with my machine and 5" pads.
Do I need like an extension bar thing with like 3" pads and if so how do I know which one suits my machine?

Extension bars don’t work well with a da. Try a 3 inch backing plate and pad.

Are all backing plates the same thread?

I went with a rotary. For small jobs like you describe you don't need some exotic expensive machine.

You could probably use a variable speed electric drill in a pinch.

I have extension bars and also 1", 2" and 3" pads with backing plates to match.
