To clean, I like 3D LVP cleaner. I protect them with Blackfire Crystal Seal which can be safely applied to vinyl, unlike most waxes.

I think you will be fine with the black pad and the finishing polish. But make sure to do a test spot first.

Not sure what advice you're looking for, seems like you have everything you need?

I don't understand this product to be honest. It's like a longer-to-apply Adam's version of Carpro Hydro2 that doesn't last as long.

definitely not a fan boy, but out of those, I like buttery wax the best. It is a solid wax. Collinite lasts longer but is harder to apply.
