Cool Mothers pro line for swirls and haze

Hello Admin and all,

I have a black BMW 2008 in a very good condition. However, it shows minor swirls and haze in the sun. I would like to apply the following steps from your application chart using Makita buffer at speed 1200-1400rpm. The products from the chart are:
1- Machine glaze (82332)
2- Foam Pad Polish (83432)
3- Hand Glaze (84532)

I need to know what buffing pad you recommend and what is the ideal buffer speed as well. Also is the hand glaze can be applied by DA and/or hand? The reason I would like to use your pro line is that I heared good words and also I used different proudcts and still I can see the swirls and haze when I take the car outside in the sun. Looking forward to hear your advice.

Regards
Moheb

Welcome to Wax Forum, and we're sorry for the delay -- you caught us while we were at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Foam Pad Polish and a soft pad like a black Lake Country pad for machine glaze is all you might need at about 800-1200 rpm -- it finishes out real nice and is ready to apply a pure wax.

You really shouldn't need a hand glaze if you are able to polish thoroughly.

Thanks for getting back to me. Just I would like to make sure the steps are correct. First I 'll apply machine glaze and follow up with a foam pad polish? Please advice-thanks Admin.

Machine Glaze is probably more aggressive than what you need. Foam Pad Polish is a better starting point, as it can finish out to a nice shine, ready for waxing.

Hi Admin,

I'll have the Foam Pad Polish tomorrow and I'm planning to use it this weekend. The question I would like to ask is that how often should I use the Foam Pad Polish? Do you consider the product as aggressive (What is the cut level, high, medium or low)? If it is aggressive can I use in future your 3 steps system or do you recommend other Mothers products. Please advice and thanks for your help.fficeffice" />>>

Ideally you care for your vehicle in a manner so that you should only have to perform serious polishing once or twice a year.

I got the Foam Pad Polish, do I need to apply the Hand Glaze (84532) after Foam Pad Polish? Or I can use step (2) Sealer & Glaze prior to nauba wax.

You can go straight to pure wax.
