    Working the product in too long will cause dust for sure. It can get messy, but, some panels require more work than others depending on the condition of the paint.

    Cleaning on the Fly during each panel is necessary, Ill usually end up using a clean dry pad every panel so that I don't have to clean the pads as much. This also preserves the pads.

    FYI - Heat is not needed to correct paint, it is an unnecessary byproduct from buffing and product buildup in the pad. You get your correction from the product and the pad combination as well as having proper equipment.

    Heat will build up faster when you have more product in the pad, and will also cause your pads to collapse and will loose its correcting ability.

    Dusting is also cause from not holding your pad flat. This can also cause spatter.

    If your using a clean pad and get dust then the pad likely has some dry product left in it. I fix this by putting the pad on my buffer and spin it on medium speed and slap the pad to remove any dust. Then prime and begin buffing.
    If the pad starts dusting then I move to another clean dry pad.

    Bumping an ancient thread...

    Did some clean up on the daily driver over the weekend and used one of my favorite products, Collinite #845 . This is an awesome wax for people like me who are lazy. The shine is awesome on a light colored car and it lasts for 5-6 months. It's dirt cheap too!

    I prepped the car by washing it with Duragloss #901 wash concentrate, then decontaminated the paint with IronX. The paint was clean enough at that point, so I topped it off with Collinite 845 and about an hour later, gave the car a wipedown with Duragloss Aquawax to make sure there were no streaks left behind.





    I've been trying to use up all of my old detailing products so I can try some of the new stuff that's on the market. What is in everyone's detailing arsenal?
