    It took me about a similar time to make that change and it was such an uh huh moment, I started saving a few hours per detail and clients were just as happy.

    I`ve found reload seems to fill quite nicely aswell, plus a whole heap of gloss.

    Re: How do I compete with this?

    Have you never watched a place buff a car like that? The arm movement is pretty funny. If they use a DA the pad isnít even rotating most of the time. Itís like a min or two per panel they are flying through it. You donít see pads being cleaned or changed.

    The place I know currently is using megs 301. Shines well and wipes off easy. Top that at the end with a spray wax of some sort like aqua glow or whatever production wax/sealant of the week is
