    How do I prep paint before using #80?

    Beside washing and drying, what do I need to do? My finish is new, I have clayed it and put 2 coats of NXT. Do I need to remove the NXT?

    You're set to go... the M80 will remove the NXT.

    Are you applying with a dual action polisher?

    Take your time, move the polisher slowly over the finish and let the product do the work. Apply 3-5 lbs of pressure, but not so much the polishing pad stops rotating. Work a small section at a time, overlap your passes and overlap from one section into the previous section.

    You will remove your swirls and any previous coats of wax.
