Choosing the Correct Pad – Part II

Once you have determined the surface type, type of operation and what type of machine you will be using, I would wash the vehicle.  After washing the vehicle, clay the vehicle to remove all the contaminants that the naked eye can’t see before starting the buffing process.  For more information about claying a vehicle check this out http://www.lakecountrymfg.com/blog/index.cfm/catid/10/id/30/claying-a-vehicle . It is best to have at least two pads, per process.  That way, if a pad gets loaded with product or becomes dirty, you can let it soak and get another pad to reduce down time.  It is always suggested to start with a softer pad and work to more aggressive.  If you start out to aggressive and don’t need it, they you have to worry about removing any marrings or marks, which will also not waste extra time.  In the next article we will start the buffing process.
