Wondering exactly how you applied and removed the 845. I saw you used the GG i'm assuming.

Incredible job btw.

I don't know how Phil applied it, but I just use a foam applicator pad, and buff off with a clean microfiber towel. A little goes a long way with 845.

the 845 was applied with a Uber Black Foam Pad with the Griots machine on speed 3, then we removed with an Uber Microfiber Towel.
