Details around the net regarding pressure during application seems to be unclear though, so I'm asking do you really need to apply pressure when using pre-wax cleaners as though they're polishes? I'm going to apply it by hand w/ a Lake Country CCS white hand applicator pad. I know that there are very mild abrasives in paint cleaners and that the solvents in them are actually what do most of the "cleansing" action, so I would think using pressure when working it in isn't necessary but I just want to make sure.
for pre cleaners I typically do not put all that much pressure I apply buff off, I'm pretty sure there are instructions on the bottle I would try to follow that as close as you can for best results.

I was wondering how I should clean my interior panels? And what products I should use? I've got painted panels so I don't want to scratch the surface.

have you thought of wiping down with Adam's total interior or 1z einszett cockpit, and then clean up the surface with polish and wax?

Can you recommend a product to fill and/or polish small chips in glass and plastic headlight lenses?

I've been using Sonax on my wheels and have never had the stuff turn purple like when you're cleaning wheels,just a slight hint of purple one time.It makes me think I'm doing something wrong.The wheels never get really dirty,could that have some effect on how it turns so purple?As always Thanks

I would agree what brake pads, how long do you let it sit, and how often do you get to your rims, once a week? twice a week?

I think the pads are ceramic on one car,my truck has front disc and drum rear.I usually leave it for a few minutes and then use a daytona brush to scrub the wheels,the wheels on my Lexus are factory clear coated,truck rims are chrome plated,and have not used sonax on the Camaro as of yet.Oh I almost forgot I don't clean the car or truck that often.
