Re: Tips For Compound, Polish & Wax

Maine, I can't thank you enough. I don't own a boat yet, but own a 38ft 5th wheel that needs TLC. Ordered a Gallon of Gel compound, Gallon of Ultra cutting creme, and a gallon of Ultra Polish. Overkill, yes, but the money i saved buying more was well worth it. Also ordered a Dewalt 849x. All i have left are pads a LSP. I know you recommend 3m's wool compound pad, but will a compound wool pad from say Meguiars or Buff and shine work? Also what color foam pad from lake country do you use for step 2 and 3? How much pressure and section passes do you usually do in a 2x2 area?
One more i promise, I live in Arizona and it gets hot here. which wax or sealant will last the longest? I heard you talk about collinite 845 and Nu finish, but out of the two, which would you use??
New to rotarys. I buff my own cars and trucks with a Griots DA. New to the whole wool pads and Gel coat thing. TIA
