    interesting... I dont recall feeling anything like that however i'll check again.
    Assuming I don't need or want to clay, what would be the best process thereafter?
    Is polish needed or right to sealant then wax? or polish then sealant skip the wax?

    If you clay, and don't have any major swirls or scratches, a finish polish would be fine...followed by a sealer/ wax (depends on who you ask, the 2 are GENERALLY interchangeable).

    If I don't feel the pimples on her a$$ after a wash, I usually just hit it with Meguiars cleaner wax.

    She generally gets the full treatment (clay, compound-if needed, polish and Carnuba wax or NXT 2.0) twice a year- spring and fall.

    Texas sun and constant f'ing construction dust is brutal on paint.

    Put your hand in a plastic baggie & run it across the panels, helps you feel the contaminates on the paint. Even if the paint is factory fresh I would still polish before I put a wax or sealant on it.

    Adams Polishes is currently running a sale on their small polisher. I recommend Adam's products to everyone for their unrivaled ease of use and made in the USA policy.

    Da = dual action. Yes it's a buffer but instead of just spinning in one direction it goes left and right while it spins. Makes it much harder to burn the paint.

    Harder, but ummm, not impossible.
    Well, so I've heard anyhow. I mean, I never ever burned a patch of paint on any 1971 VW super beetle or anything, but I heard you can still do it 😬

    Bought a Harbor Freight DA and swapped out the #6 weight for a Porter Cable #5. I use Meguiars products on my 08 Vette and will use the same products on the Scat when necessary.

    Same here, I have had the Harbor Freight DA for about 5 years with flawless performance. I have a 6" and 3" backing pad for it. I also have had their rotary polisher for about 10 years with a 1" backing pad.

    I keep it simple now and just use Meguiars M105 and M205 polishes when needed and Adam's H20 Guard and Gloss after my monthly wash.

    The entire car beads like this and its been a month since the last wash. I can't say good enough things about that stuff.

    Thanks for this I was also looking at these items and more than likely I just may go this route and probably just get the Adams paint sealant or the guard n gloss. What pads are you using?

    The 7" (I mistakenly said 6" earlier) pads are Lake Country Kompressor Orange and white. The 1" are by Flex, the 3" are a generic foam assortment from Amazon, but they perform very well for a flawless finish.

    The Guard and Gloss is awesome since it goes on while the car is still wet so you save some time there. It provides amazing protection but it also prevents any marring or scratches versus drying with just a towel.

    May use the guard and gloss after I use the paste wax from meguiars that I have been using..to help the wax last a bit longer
