What results have you had with microfibre applicators if any? Only thing I'm worried about is that perhaps cloth could cause swirls, or is it ok because the polish is providing lubrication?

I have bought a few of these Halfords MF pads over the years and they work pretty well too.

A dampened cloth shouldn't scratch, i don't think

I've compounded and polished my car with DA and Menzerna, then wiped down and applied Menzerna Power Lock Sealant. Now that I've done that and the sun is out I realise I've made a mistake and I should have used SRP before the sealant as I still have micro abrasions.

My question is, if I now apply some SRP over the sealant, will it
A) be ineffective?
B) strip the sealant? or
C) neither of the above?

I plan to top off with Collonite 915 anyway, but would just like to mask some of the finer swirls.

Do you need to mask up black trim and rubbers ? ..... or does splatter come off easily.

If you carful you want need to tape the trim up, I never have. I believe Autoglym recommend using fast glass to clean any residue off trims.

I would always dress the plastic trims after the polishing stage.
