finish polish on microfiber polishing pad.

Recommended Posts

just got a brand new car and opti-seal for it. so after washing and claying, i'm thinking of applying finish polish with a mf pad. is this ok? or should i use a finishing foam pad?

finally did my new car: washed, speedy prep, opt finish, poli-seal, and finally opti-seal. turned out fantastic. However, i encountered problem with the opt finish polish. used a rotary at low speed, first a brand new mf pad which i primed with qd and 4 dots of FP, it was very "grabby/tacky". my rotary was heating up. changed to a brand new hydrotech finishing pad, same thing. Changed to a gray ccs pad still the same. So i decided to do it by hand which turned out ok. Then applied poli-seal by rotary with no problems. I have almost all the opt products and find them all excellent products, except for the opt finish which frustrates me. what is going on wrong?

Not sure why this is happening but might be worth priming the pad with just the polish rather than a QD. New pads seem to soak up more liquid than a used on so it might be worth adding a little more on the first use.
