    Default new mopping technique

    had a new product in today, now heard a lot about this, now bear with me as i try and explain how it works.
    first off this is a water based product so no more tapping up plastic, as any over spill will wash off with a damp rag. the actual product is where the fun starts. its been made just for machine polishing. so you use a 100% wool head without and polyester will reduce the amount of heat generated. so this product works by the amount of speed in the head. the faster you spin the head and product the molecules bunch together. so as you move the speeds up the more bite and cut you get. the slower speed you go the molecules separate and reduce the cut.
    those of you at AutoBrite will remember that the faster cutting head left the hologram effect. so all you do now is to reduce the speed and go back over the same area. so no more need for different heads and different compounds. as the product goes single use start to finish.
    most of the existing products have been a natural progression, this has been started a fresh and designed from the bottom up. and is a new way of using this technique to mop

    after trying out the AutoBrite method i was very impressed with the way it worked and if i where doing my own car would use this way. but after trying this today go to say its the best and fastest method i have seen

    yes i know pics are the law, but this is work, so i will try and do some without it being to obvious what i am doing

    I would be interested in the new polish that can be wiped off trim, I spend a fortune in 3m 3434 tape. as for the polishing tecnique it is known as the zenith method, start slow to spread, work the speed up to work the polish and get the bite then drop back down to refine the finish and remove the hologramming.
