Default Trying Out New Supplies

I purchased the Griots Wax and orbital kit about a month ago, and finally had some time to play with it over the weekend. I did the basic wash, clay, polish and wax. I usually add a sealant before wax, but got kinda lazy. I used Griots Clay, Polish and Chemical Guys BWW.


the Chemical Guys Butter Wet Wax is nice..so much Im going to buy a gallon size


Cell shots.

I think I'm over working or not using enough polish....the griots polish was kind of hard to remove.

use a spray bottle with water and a small amount of quick detailer and spray it on the worked polish when it starts to look dry or is "dusting"

Not trying to be funny because it seems like you done this before but you are working a small area at a time and not like half the car and then trying to remove thr griots?

I would say about half the size of the front door at a time (if you can picture that). Im sure its op error. Im doing my car this Saturday so I'll try the spray bottle trick. I used many polishes in the past, but this one seems to be a tricky one.
