I have found by adding a spot of 106FA to the pad with 3.02 helps when 3.02 is playing up.

Pad - your local bodyshop supplier will more than likely stock an assortment of 3M products

Do the Menz pads help at all in providing a more constant result?

It can clump up and then you get your buffer skipping all over the place! Not much fun!

Ceramiclear polishes use wax as a lubricant - fantastic when its warm and dry as the wax melts. When its cold/wet the wax hardens before the polish has broken down and clumps!

3M 50077 trizact have a cut of 85 and higher gloss then fast cut
3M 80438 extra fine cut from 75-12 and a very high gloss.
