As said by others really.
Lime prime will work wonders by hand but with a da it will be taken to the next level. It's actually where I started, I used the buff daddy and still do for some jobs but more with a rotary now days. A da is a great starting point and if you do some reading on this site you will pick up so many tips.

What would people recommend to use if applying it by hand? A short pile MF or something plusher? Or a foam applicator?

Quick question - both with a DA - on a black car - Lime Prime or Prima Amigo?
One is abbrassive and one isn't. I have one, not the other.

What's your weapon?

I have LP and LPL - both very good on my black car. If by hand, I'd go for PA. By machine, LP.

Having not done anything with this since I first asked.....

The car looks like it needs some correction work.
Where does Lime Prime sit compared to more typical polishes? I have a full set of Menzerna in the garage ranging from harsh to fine. Are they better than LP? Is LP for a finish that doesn't need much correction?

As far as I understand it, LP is basically a fine finishing polish

Lime prime is a pre wax cleaner with micro abrasives to yake care of very light swirls.
A very nice product may i say,one for everyone's detailing arsenal.
