    when i polished my black audi a4, i used the s100 polish i had bought. and i used a foam applicator pad. was i using the right pad or was there something better to use?

    also when cleaning windows detail. after you clay bar the windows to get them clean, do you need to ad anything else to them? light polish or wax or rain x? thanks

    Foam applicator is fine for S100 SEPC. Nope, no need to do anything after claybar. Sometimes I put some Rain-X on, but it's just personal preference.

    I use Vanilla Moose on the windows. Lasts much longer than RainX, no hazing and it really deep cleans the glass.

    I didn't know that I could clay my windows! I'll have to try that now.

    I don't usually dress my windows, cause I've had some bad experiences with rainX... but I do use the windshield washer fluid that has rainX in it, and I love it. Because of light mists in this area that aren't heavy enough to roll off, I don't think I'd want a product like rainX on my side or rear windows...
    at least up front I have wipers to clean off the windshield when the shit isn't heavy enough to roll off.

    Either way, you're not going to scratch glass.

    Yes, back and forth.
