      Using Collinite 845

      I am a newbie to the detailing world, and I am applying Collinite 845 to my 2 month old car this weekend. My question is, can I useMeguiar's Gold Class Applicator Pad to apply Collinite 845 by hand? Please suggest.

      I had used the gold class applicators the first time i tried out 845. Did not see any issues as such, although it absorbs the liquid. After that i have used the wolfgang two sided applicator for polishing and waxing. Try it on one panel and if you don't experience any issues, use it for the entire car.

      Yup you can do that. Have a lot of energy drinks / Lemon Salt Soda ready & be prepared for this tiresome exercise.

      Collinite 845 is soft runny wax for hand application. I do not see any issue with a foam applicator though it maybe tough to apply same without any abrasion to car, MF pad would be idle.

      You can wrap the MF towel over the Sponge Pad and use. Just keep moving the towel for a clean surface it the application area picks up dirt. Go panel by panel meaning apply 845 on a panel do a finger sipe test and remove the dried product with a clean MF and then move on to another panel for application. This way you can take a breather and will not be very tired in the end

      Take a mf not a big one maybe just 10x10. Fold it in half middle way again so it makes a good fluff at same time should be easy to hold by hand. Voila! you got your own MF pad

      Microfiber pads work best for wax application. Helps spread even thin coat. The thinner the better. Sometimes it helps to damp the pads with water/QD to prevent the product getting soaked inside. If you're tight on budget simply wrap around short nap Microfiber towel over a foam pad and apply.
