Do you find that you have to use more than one pad for each material. Like do you prefer to switch to a clean one halfway through the job. Or have you been able to use one foam pad for compounding for the whole car, and just one to do all the glazing or polishing? Thanks!

The number and type of pads will depend on the type of polish and the amount of paint that needs to be removed. In most cases you should be able to do a complete car with one Sure Finish orange pad with either Sure Finish or Wizard's Mystic Cut. Keep the pad moist while you work and it will allow the polish and the pad to last much longer and work much better.
