Dodo Prime Lime

Hi

This is my first post on this site and im new to using detailing products
What would be the best method of using Dodo Juice Prime Lime when applying by hand circular or straight lines?
At what stage would i use it ?
Im guessing Clay bar, Dodo Prime lime then a Wax Protection.
I dont have a Polishing machine at the moment and not sure if i need to use one or not.
My car is a ( Silver ) 2012 Mercedes C Class Saloon so the paint is pretty good.with just the odd marks here and there.

Please help if possible

Hi djpaul

Welcome to the forum

Wash
Decontaminate (fallout remover , Tar remover)
Clay
DJ Lime Prime
Wax

For the lime Prime use either a foam or microfiber pad.
I prefer to apply this product in circular motions. Others may work in straight lines.
It's quite an oily product so work the product in well, a panel at a time, then wipe away and go to the next panel.

It's a really nice product, great results

Enjoy!

Will prime lime create swirls if used in a circular motion?
How hard do i press when applying?

No that's a fallacy. Apply it any way you want. You don't need to apply pressure. Just apply it with an applicator and work it in well as it contains a lot of oils. It good stuff though.

I'm in the same position, new to this and wondering how to apply prime lime. Seen a couple of videos where they've used a DA to apply it so had thought doing it by hand wasn't an option.

Naah lime prime had such fine abrasives in it, that it can actually refine minor swirls if used by machine

By hand it's a great paint cleanser

Swirls only look circular because most lights or the sun are circular, so they reflect in rings away from the source

Thank you for all your advise so far
Im also guessing you only need to use a small amount.
I was then considering applying Dooka Blacklight Sealant
Any thoughts on this would be helpful

Thats great to hear.
I actually live 2 miles from Dooka's Shop/Office.

Get them to take a look at my paint and advise on what to buy from them to enhance and protect it.
