When applying polish, wax, sealant etc by hand, are you supposed to apply in back and forth, or in cirlcular motion? I was told by circular motion, you can cause swirls in the finish? Is this true or what? uch:
It really doesn't matter once you get to the last steps of detailing, what is more important is that the surface is prepped properly. If you have any micro particles still on the finish, no matter what method you use, you will cause swilrs.

C-Man said:I read that you want to front and back on the hood, roof and trunk and up and down on the sides. Basically go with the wid flow direction. This will help make the inevitable swirls less noticable. I have a porter cable and once santa brings my pinnacle Souveran, I will be removing all of the swirls from the last 4 months.
cwcad said:C-Man, Gary is right about the Pinnacle Souveran. It will not remove swirls. Swirl remover products will though.
Gary, I disagree that the PC will not remove swirls. Time, pads and product is all that is needed to get swirls out of a cars finish. I have and will continue to make paint corrections with my PC. I do have a rotary that I use on severe paint correction.
Gary, I am sure that your products produce results. Have read, from members of this forum as well as your self, how good your products are.
Pinnacle Souveran is one of my favorite products. I have it on my truck right now. Have been testing Carnuaba's this winter season for something to do while I am seasonaly unemployed. Looks good but lack the durability of a sealant.
If I had not already invested heavily in sealants that have reliable recommendations from forums that you and I both frequent, I would purchase some of your products to test and evaluate. Rest assured that next year at this time I will be giving your products a try on my vehicle.
Sounds like a very good plan!! I look forward to some picks after theSouveran is applied. Have been using Souveran on my truck these last two months. I like it very much.C-Man said:Gary, with all do respect, I have removed swirls with my porter cable and Poor Boy SSRs. Just as cwcad and many, many others on the detail forums I visit. Sorry for the confusion that I was going to remove them with the Souveran wax. I plan to clay, polish with the SSRs, then seal my car with Klasse before I top with Souveran.
Yes, the pic posted is the DeWalt 443, far superior to the DAPC. you can tell the difference just by turning the motor on. takes the same pads as the PC. Please don't take offense on my comments, we are entitled to our opinion. as far as products, if you are happy with whatyou are using, by all means stick with it. I'm just making professional products available to the public at wholesale prices. take my bottle of sealant, its 10 bucks, now take pinnacle, you know how much that costs, thats my point. I'm tryingt to save people money on their supplies along with offering tips on how to detail. That is my focus. as you can see my reading feedback here and on my web site, Its working, people are happy. Garycwcad said:Sounds like a very good plan!!
