How to put product on a DA Buffing Pad (http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7921)

What is the proper way to apply product to the G-100 foam pad? In my case Deep Crystal Paint Cleaner, Deep Crystal Polish and Deep Crystal Carnauba Wax.

Secondly what is the best way to clean the pads or store them in a zip bag for next time. I only have 2 pads each and 3 types of product.

Thanks,

RonW.

You can either make an X pattern on the face of the foam pad or place a circle of product around the outside edge, either will work.

I think there are some pretty good threads on how to clean and store the foam pads, try looking in the G100 forum or typing the words, clean foam pad into the search engine on our forum.

The "X" and the "O' are very popular ways to apply product to your pad but I prefer the "SPONGE BOB" myself.

Nothing wrong with Spounge Bob. I wish he would work on my car.

I should make an appointment to drive to Corvia, CA and get my car Superior Shined.

Heh, and I thought one of the last things you would want to use on your car was a sponge!

Sorry to bump this thread. Mike, would that pattern apply to 7 and NXT also? After 80 the paint looks good but I may be inducing swirls when applying 7 with a 9006. Putting about a quarter size dab on pad.
