    What do you use to spread and rub the product in? First thought would be your hand but I'm wondering if there isn't a less messy option that works as well.

    I was wondering the same thing

    Re: A look into Pad Priming

    I just prime the pads with a finger. Usually, I just apply a circle of the polish, work it into the pad, and then apply a bit more polish to the dry areas and work it in.

    You might be able to prime it using a pen or something, but I haven't tried anything else.

    I've thought about the application since then. I wonder if a putty knife wouldn't work good. The plastic ones are pretty cheap.

    Yeah, a putty knife might work.

    My only concern would be that the knife could cut into the pad. You need something that can be pressed into the pad to work the product in.

    I normally prime the pad before polishing. Then, I just add the product when needed. The priming is not after each section, but rather when the pad is fresh and devoid of product.

    Re: A look into Pad Priming

    Is this for DA or Rotary use? Or both?

    Looks good.

    Re: A look into Pad Priming

    Pad priming can be used on all machines: DA, rotary, and Cyclo.

    Kevin's paper will only cover the DA, though.

    Re: A look into Pad Priming

    If you've ever painted a room/surface with a roller you already now how to prime a pad; if you don't get the entire surface of the roller covered with paint when you start on your surface you're going to have voids where the roll is dry. You don't want to load the roller to the point where you can't move it from over the pan for fear of dripping, but rather an even amount. Same principle applies here, IMO.

    Very true.

    I would like to add that this method is NOT for use with products that use diminishing abrasives. If you use a product that uses abrasives that break down, there might be some inconsistent polishing because the abrasives break down randomly.
