And just to note because there's a number of Mikes here at Meguiar's... the "Mike" in the video is Mike Pennington our Director of Training, not myself.

LOL :D

out of curiosity, which is suppose to be the best practice in the industry? place the compound/polish on the finished surface or place it on the foam/wool?

When using a rotary buffer, you place a strip of product on the panel and then pick it up with your pad spinning on the rotary buffer like demonstrated in these videos.

When using a tool that oscillates, like a DA Polisher, you apply the product directly to the face of the pad and than place the face of the pad against the finish before turning it on.

In the first video segment, this one,

That's an 8" W-4000 Wool Cutting pad (http://www.meguiarsdirect.com/product_detail.asp?T1=MEG+W4000).

I can't help but wonder how you lay down a strip of product on the side door and pick it up with your rotary, please make a video of that would you :)

Great videos! but i still having trouble to balancing the rotary with the foam pads, its easier with the wool pads, specially the brown compound foam pad, its so stiff. I know the technique from doing floor polishing but still i just can't really hold it with one hand, the rotary that is :)

Thanx for this forum guys!
