Wrong! If YOU use too much it will leave white powder. I can't say it much clearer than that.

Still can't understand why you would want to use a paint cleaner after polishing, the paint will be pretty clean by then.
Most sealants willl not adhere well to another product and prefer bare paint.

Think people are blinded by products and apply srp, glaze, sealant and wax and wonder why it does not look to good. It is too many products.

Polish car and correct, IPA wipe down, add sealant or wax say 2 coats and job done.

What about for people like me (a newbie) who didnt do full correction but say 90% and just wanted the SRP to fill the remaining marks? To be fair if i can leave out the SRP then bonus its one less job to do.

I don't get too much time to keep on top of my van lately but I keep it clean. It was only half way through I thought I should be taking pictures, but the colour of the pad tells it's own story.

I really think using the microfiber pad made all the difference to the cleaning and finish. The beauty of using a DA is including buffing after it off took about half an hour and you couldn't dream of getting close to the finish by hand. The bonus being the optimum pads are mega durable so you can just put it in the machine after.





How many pads did You use for the whole car?

By coincidence i just made an order for these.
I wanted to use them along with Menzerna 106, but i don't have alot of time and might just go the way You cleaned Your car.

So after polishing with the menzerna polish best thing to do is an IPA wipedown (what dilution rate) and then go straight ahead with applying HD Wax?
