My stupid question for Mr Adams

I bought the Pc polishing kit and wash kit for my 2011 Camaro, watched the video, and I have a dumb question, which is one how do I buff around badges on the vehicle, and second areas like front fascia? Do I use the products for the machine by hand? Please help

No, I was wondering for the areas that you can't get the buffer in like the front fascia area, would I use the products for the buffer by hand?

On any vehicle there are simply going to be some areas you can't get a polisher into effectively. The 4" focus pads can be mounted up to the PC to give you a few more options, but even then there are going to be spots you can't get to. Those will have to be hand rubbed.

Its simple enough to take a hand applicator or even use the machine pads by hand, to rub those areas out. Since the pads are very flexible its easy enough to fold one up like a taco and use it to polish by hand.

Badged you simply avoid. Tape them off to keep them from taking chunks out of your pads and you can work right up to the edge of them .

Dude? Seriously?

Why you gotta make a taco reference. I already have a hard time not eating my Adams products.

They smell so goooooood. hahahaha

OP, if you get the small pads be very careful to pay attention and keep the PC lower.

Using the 4" pads with the pc u dont have to be so careful cuz uts no different then using the bigger pads on the pc..u have to be careful using the 4" pads on a drill..it then becomes a rotory.so it will not slow down when u apply pressure..u can leave holograms or damage ur paint...if holograms r left..u would just put the 4" pads on the pc and use fine machine polish to get rid of the holograms.
