If an organisation had not responded within 45 days I would just phone whomever you bought them from or write to them.

Oh, that sounds like an interesting experiment. It would be interesting to see how much wax is needed to alter the gloss readings. My guess is a lot but perhaps it is only a few layers. The...

Number of passes really depend on the glass and what you are trying to remove.

I would use speed 3'ish, heat is an issue when polishing glass so too much speed is not good.

I would try the pad and see what happens. A DA is very sensitive to pad placement on a backing plate and so would be out of balance but a rotary seems more forgiving

However, I do admire your...

I love the 3M pads on a rotary but they would not be my first choice for a DA. They will work but you will loose some efficiency as they will try to absorb the orbit (throw) of the machine.

I don't really understand what your proposal is and in particular what 'hazing and frequency' means. Are you looking to test if gloss increases by increasing layers?

As an aside, OCW takes longer...

I would start with clay, overspray removal was the original purpose of car clay. There is a recent video by The Rag Company on using a razor blade, this may be useful if going down that route

Only limited experience with Ultima but it does seem to be a very nice product. I can see why Tosh prefers it to the ONRWW and he may well be right but I could easily live with either
