    I was looking for product information, then I have watched a lot of Mike's posts. I have learned so much from your loved ones like Mike ... in my country, detailing cars are very popular. but all they are doing is not good ... less than 2/10 the way he did. then learned from his work mike. I ask locals to buy some products from autogeek sent to Vietnam.

    I spent 3 hours every night to see mike ... and I've been practicing on a few cars. I do not well ... I used meguiars DA's Power to modify my way ... I just bought poter cable from the HD 7424 autogeek and add some product details ... now I love this art.

    Thank you very much .. Mike.

    Wow!

    Thank you! Love to see some pictures of the cars you're detailing in Vietnam!

    The PC is a capable tool. The information I wrote in this article is still just as accuarate as the day I wrote it.

    The good news is there are now super thin pads available and these really help you to maximize the results from the Porter Cable.

    In your initial videos, you slather down the lines of product on the pad pretty thick. You've mentioned using a circle or X pattern will allow you to not have the need of priming a pad, but if we prime, can we still get by with 4-6 pea-sized drops like we can with other moderate polishes and mild glazes? I use many WG products, but am about to try the Swirl Remover and Glaze for the first time. Considering their costs, I'd like to extend their life a bit. So, can I prime using a diluted detail spray and use 5 pea-sized dots per section like I do with other polishes and glazes?

    Yes.

    The big picture is you want enough product between the pad and the paint to both provide enough lubrication for the process plus pad rotation as well as enough abrasives to get the job done.

    Yes.

    The WG Total Swirl Remover and Wolfgang Finishing Glaze, (not a glaze but a fine cut polish), are GREAT products and have good working times or play time.

    Just don't tackle to big of an area at one time, something around 18" to 20" squarish.


    What are you working on?
