    should this be applied like a wax or a polish? i put it on like a wax with my pc with a blue proper pad.

    steps i used

    optimum polish w/green pad
    prime with blue pad
    aj by hand

    optimum made the paint look really good, but didnt really remove the swirl or scatches with out alot of time.

    Prime is to lay down the base for the AJ as I understand it.

    You probably have some deeper ones that you need a heavier cutting pad, or a more abrasive polish to deal with your swirls.

    I'd step up to the yellow or orange pad if Optimum isn't removing much with the green pad.

    I apply Prime with the blue Propel finishing pad and then you need to let it sit about 30 minutes to completely dry for best durability results.
