Did you use C2 neat? That's my plan ... and then use C2 diluted to maintain after each wash.
Yes it was neat Paul, easy on and off. I have made up a 1/2 litre of QD too.

Paul (freon warrior) as you said it really does dust but I think it worth putting up with it for the great results :wink:

The water spray really does help keep the dust down.

... so if dust does fly out, mist some water over the surface and just go over to pick up the polish dust again?

The dust seemed to get everywhere, down the wings, rad grille and in the badge too! The spritz helped to work the polish longer but the dried 'fling' was a bit of a pain.

I think the trick is to keep the pad moist because the polish is water based.

May be of help http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/s ... p?t=162533

It may be worth asking Rob at Gtechniq for tips :idea: .

I had a similar problem with Megs Swirl X and I got round it by adding a very small blob of Britemax polishing glaze on the pad. I guess it just added some extra lube. But I haven't tried it with the P1

This looks good http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/s ... p?t=179044

Thanks Ash, I had seen the Porky thread but not the other one. As I say with a bit more use I should get the hang of it.

Here is a slightly better pic.

Thanks Ash, it has not fully corrected, so another go would probably sort it, but I plan on leaving it on a durability test.

:cool:. I believe the C2 has a 6 month life but I'm not sure if that includes topping up with the QD. I don't think I could wait that long without applying something :lol:

I'm a bit late to the party with G|T, but I'm looking forward to trying it

I hope I can 'master' P1, so that I can use that then C2 on most of my details, which should cut down time, yet yield impressive results.

Any further thoughts on using P1 by rotary?
