The only benefit that I found of using a machine (with finesse pads) to apply sealants and carnauba was that it spreads more efficiently than by hand, so I actually end up cutting product consumption by 50%. since the goal is the spread very thin coats, I avoid wasting the expensive stuff.

Ammo, so after you detailed and dry car, you use Hydrate on dry surface to prevent any swirls for forming?

Wonderful videos, as always; I must ask, however, why not go to the next step and use a car drying blower (e.g., Metrovac. or McKee's 37) to avoid the potential of fine scratches (even with detailing spray and plush microfiber towels), particularly on black or soft paint?

Larry thanks for all your videos! I have been able to learn so much from them and I can say with certainty that your enthusiasm for cars and detailing them is contagious :) I have a quick question about the foam applicator pads in general. I used them to apply ammo skin to my car. When I was done I squeezed the pad and skin just keeps coming out of it. So my question is, are the pads supposed to soak up the product? In that case, wouldn't I be wasting a lot of product? I feel like the majority of the skin I put onto the pad gets absorbed instead of applied when I wipe it across the surface of the paint ( in straight lines ). Thanks and I'm looking forward to your next video!

+hayzai Glad to help and happy to hear it's helped you. I don't know which applicator you have or are using but the applicator pads that I use, the same thing happens no matter what products I've ever used on them. They are foam and that's what they do, they absorb product. Hope this helps. Thanks for watching and supporting AMMO!

After polishing a car I have started putting on collinite 845 with my DA. It super quick and easy. Still have to do the small details by hand though. I think it works very well with liquid wax. But for paste etc it's definitively best to do by hand. And it's a nice relaxing thing to do

Thanks for all your videos. I have a question about sealant. I've always just waxed or clay barr>wax but I want to try sealant to protect my car. In your ammo paint regimen video you mentioned a tip about leaving the sealant over night [8hrs?] and here you said to do one panel at a time because its so 'sticky' please carify if you can.

+mexican47 I think you sould do one panel at a time before buffing, then wait over night to cure before driving.

Hay larry! Iv been told applying sealant by DA is better because the heat created by the rotation of the pad helps to cure the sealant better, making a stronger bond which will last longer What are you'r thoughts on this ?
