adams paint correction

when you guys do the 3 step paint correction do you wipe-off the previous polish before applying the next or do you cover it after it flashes? it looked like adam layered all 3 then wiped it down after the FMP. but couldn't tell if they just cut that part out of the video.

From some of the posts I've read, they only wipe if off after the FMP like you said. but I could be wrong... (I usually am! HAHA!!)

You can do either/or. I think you wipe the product to see if you like the result of your labor before you move to other parts of the car. If you are happy with your technique, then you can choose to just layer products over the other if you'd like.

Just go right on top. You don't have to wipe it off til you're done with FMP.

It depends on who's technique you are using.

I ALWAYS wipe the polish off after each pass so that I can inspect my work. My logic is, how do you know if your technique is good and whether or not you need to continue with the same polish unless you wipe it off and inspect the area? That's why I do it the way I do and that's what makes sense to me. That's MY technique, not to be confused with anyone elses.

So I'm guessing neither is wrong?

No technique is wrong if it gives you the results you seek. My advice is just be able to explain to whomever may be watching, why you do it the way you do. Have a method to your madness, a rhyme or reason.

If it doesn't make sense to you, then why would you do it the way you do?

maybe i was being too technical. i never layered with meguiars consumer line, and i got decent results but i switched over to adams and am using their products. i almost jumped to mirror glaze but it seems as if adams is easier to use. just wanted to make sure i wasn't going to do anything wrong.
