    Well. I did it!

    Finally got the back in plate and pads
    Iím impatient and had zero time today after getting kids from school and then having to go to trampoline and the ex wife for drop off

    You guys donít want to hear my system or methods. Lol.
    But I washed. Dried and applied the polish and tire dressing in an hour.

    Canít wait to get used to the machine and gain confidence, but I did this with 100% confidence in the PC and that I wouldnít screw up

    To start I just used speed 1 then on the other side did 3 just to see if I felt or saw a difference. Like Iíve said, no ďcorrectingĒ just putting the polish on to make it shine with hopefully some minor swirl fill..

    Pretty happy and so is the GF
    The beast is ready for family Great wolf lodge trip Thur!

    looks pretty good for a first time polisher

    Yeah thatís the plan. Just watched some more mike Phillips videos and he said for swirl removal, apply at speed 5.... so considering I saw a difference on 1.....

    My CRV is a 2015. So maybe Iíll get a little dirtier with it.
    Use the orange pad and speed 5 and see what that brings

    Phats --
    You did great !!!!
    I am so proud of you !!!
    To get really good paint correction, the pad needs to rotate as much as possible.
    When you get the speed up to 5 or 6, you will see it rotate more and the result will be super nice..
    Your paintwork looks very very good !
    Keep working on it and have lots of pads, a good pad cleaner and process, and lots of microfibers to wipe off..
    Enjoy your vacation !

    Yeah I donít know why so many donít care for it. It think it works just fine. As some are testing and finding out for the average person none of these AIOs last long

    Black light makes a car look great imo

    What about topping Black Light with FK1000P? If BL`s only downside is durability...
