    After I washed it, I did a small section (1/4 of F150 hood) with #80 Speed glaze, and when I started wiping it off with my MF it was very difficult?? I was using a blue propel pad at 4.5, it was about 48deg. outside. I put 3 small dots about the size of an eraser on the pad. So I wiped as much as I could get off, and went and got the 'nilla moose (love that stuff :drool: ). Last time I used #80 I used #83 before hand and diden't have any problems. What gives?
    Also, EX w/carnuba isn't blinging enought for me. Should I use a finishing pad insted of by hand? TIA:hsd:

    I had the same problem when I tried to apply it, it really stuck on there. Since this is a related topic, I was wondering, is this what #80 is supposed to look like?

    Yes, Speed Glaze looks like what you would find in a diaper.

    I find that #80 is easier to remove with a terry cloth towel than with a microfiber towel, probably because it has abundant oils. In addition, I find that if I let it dry a little, that also helps. Make sure you are working it until it begins to look more clear but not until it dries, because it really won't dry and dust like DACP does. Do the next section, then come back to the 1st one and remove.

    either way, if you work it by hand it wont break down the abrasives to polish correctly. Now if you use it with a pc it can remove some light to moderate scratches. If you use it by rotory you get the best of both worlds. So either way it works.

    I'm still having a problem with #80 caking up and depositing itself at times in clumps, but I keep going over it with the blue pad, it finishes off just fine, but sometimes its hard to remove. Am I using to much? Seems like megs has always been hard to remove. :rl: :uh:

    Post a pic on how much you are putting on a pad and how big of a section. You aren't using it in the sun are you? #80 always comes off fairly easy for me.
