    Excellent video and explanation, Michael, but what about vertical panels? What's the strategy concerning the moves and pressure?

    Vertical panels are treated just like horizontal panels. Same size work area for your passes, same slow and methodical movements with overlapping strokes, same sort of pressure. You want to see that pad compress a bit, and sometimes quite a bit. For paints that are relatively hard or for defects that are pretty severe, you may want to apply enough pressure to stop the pad from spinning, then ease up just enough to get it rotating again. That's sort of the extreme situation and won't be needed on all paints. But regardless of panel orientation, your pressure, arm speed, tool speed, area covered, etc should always be the same on a given car. It really should only change as a specific situation arises, such as needing to concentrate a bit more pressure, speed or time to remove a deeper, isolated defect like an etching or deeper scratch.

    Just one thing that needs to be mentioned here is Plastic fenders and bumpers do need extra caution. Any heat buildup will not dissipate on plastic parts and can burn paint much easier then metal. Just my opinion.

    The video audio says to set the DA to a speed of 1-3 for applying wax but the text says 3.5-4. Similarly for UC the audio says 3-5 but the text says 4.5-5. Which is it? [I know the exact value will depend on how the paint is responding.]

    Also, it looks like one should spend ~15-20 seconds on each 2'x2' region? Roughly, 10 seconds would be too quick and 60 seconds would be too long?
