See the pads at the bottom. It's common amongst detailers using liquid waxes.

Wax is not going to get out what he wants to on his panel, there scratches from flattening so you need a compound to remove them... something with an abrasive in it.
Wax will only fill in. Machine polishing with wax???

We're going off on a tangent here, I was only expressing that there are pads for DA wax application, not that it is an answer to the OP's issue.

As an update on this I tried a blue medium cutting pad from machinemart along with some menzerna fg1000 cutting polish I had, this has diminishing abrasives, I worked this at a low speed with some weight applied, then followed up with a lighter pass at higher speed and it came out very good, think problem I made in past is not working the compound enough after cutting to refine the finish. Will add some pics to my resto thread when I get chance. The p4000 and p6000 defo make the polishing process easier and with my limited experience much more controllable.

I use this, very easy to use, deep shine that lasts a surprisingly long time.
