    1. do you work AIO in until it is completely broken down
    2. do you work in speed glaze it is completely broken down
    3. is the "less is better" rule standing for the AIO
    4. is the "less is better" rule standing for the glaze?

    :dunno:

    1. A few overlapping passes with the PC on 5 and moving the PC 2-3" per second, using either a blue Propel finishing pad or a yellow Meguiars polishing pad works great for me. AIO has some chemical cleaning action so it won't remove swirls so no need to really work it in.

    2. Yes. Using a Meguiars polishing pad or the green lite cut Propel pad, spread it out over the section you are working, initially just like mentioned above for AIO. Once the product is spread out, turn the PC up to 6 and slow the speed down to about 1" per second for a couple slow, overlapping products. As #80 breaks down, it gets more clear. If the excess does not wipe off relatively easily, you either used too much, didn't work it long enough, or both.

    3. Yes, definitely. You will find it takes very little AIO to cover a panel. Once the pad is primed, about 3 dots each the size of a pea is enough for a panel.

    4. Kind of hard to explain. Sort of like you will just know when you are using the proper amount. If #80 isn't clearing out after 2 slow passes with the PC on 6, you used too much.

    Speed Glaze is slightly abrasive, AIO isn't. Which do you think?

    Always work from the most to the least aggressive. :)

    Okay...before i get into the detail this weekend, here's a review of what i'll be using...

    - #80 speed glaze w/ a light cutting pad worked in till haze then hand buffed off
    - AIO w/ a polishing pad just fully worked in then hand buffed off
    - poorboy's ex-p w/ a polishing pad applied to a thin layer then leave for 20 mins...buff off after
    -wait 24 hours
    - another coat of ex-p w/ polshing pad applied to thin layer, buff off
    - p21s applied with grey pad ( i dunno what it's called), then buffed off.

    comments?
