    Re: Issues with Buff and Shine Pads

    Thatís a good point. It was the next day and a half and they felt dry on the outside but could have had moisture inside.

    Re: Issues with Buff and Shine Pads

    Thanks for the info. I have just the regular DA polisher. Iíll check the pads but Iíll probably just throw them out. This was my first time polishing so I donít wanna take any chances.

    Re: Issues with Buff and Shine Pads

    Yeah itís my first time. I may have. I primed it and then put dots on the edge. I did 1/4 of the hood then added some more on the other 1/4 so maybe I did use too much

    Re: Issues with Buff and Shine Pads

    I made sure to switch them out. I used two on the hood, one on top and on the trunk, one on each door.

    Re: Which Color Pads Green vs Blue

    So it seems like I donít really need both green and blue. Would you just get maybe say 2 green and 1 blue? Also seems like black wouldnít be necessary. Looks like itís for wax which it seems like...
