    You can use a putty knife to apply it. A little goes a very long way.

    i think he means do you hand apply it to the car then buff it, or apply it to the buffer's pad first?

    You can apply and remove paste waxes with the PC.

    I always start with the speed on 5 for polishing and work the product in with the speed on 6, moving the PC maybe an inch per second under moderate pressure.

    With waxes, I use a speed of 3.5 and light pressure. You are just spreading product around. Same speed using ultimate bonnets to remove.

    I actually use my PC wrench though. Scrape off a little wax, spread it on the pad and go. :)

    If you warm it slightly, it may be easier. I've mostly used Meguiars #16 by PC and it is like buttah!
