    Is pad lubricant/conditoner really necessary?

    Just wondering if pad lubricant/conditioner is really needed? Can you spritz a little bit of water on the pad or even a quick detailer?

    I would say yes, you can use either water or quick detailer to prep a pad.

    I always spritz a little water on my pads.

    To achieve excellence, excellence cannot be rushed. Technique is just as important as the product used.
    While my approach takes more time, the results are far superior.

    I use Gloss-It EVP pad prime and love it, will never use QD or anything like that again. Makes the rotary just glide over the paint even easier, extends polish just a bit more to get great finish out of something like PowerFinish, lowers heat a but, but really helps keep the dusting down. All in all, that 4oz bottle will last me a heck of a time as I only need one little drop per panel.

    I have used the following:
    XMT Pad Cond
    Menz Final Inspection
    Water
