  1. 1

    Put on the plastic gloves before working with the polishing compound.

  2. 2

    Knead the Compounding Foam with your gloved hands to make it pliable. Squirt a small amount of the G6 Compound onto the foam to "prime" the foam as you knead it.

  3. 3

    Center the foam onto the backing plate that is attached to the polisher. Push down firmly to get the foam to stick to the plate.

  4. 4

    Put a small amount of compound onto the foam; no more than a quarter-sized dollop is necessary.

  5. 5

    Turn on the polisher and rub the foam and compound over the panel. Spread the compound evenly, using slow, smooth, back-and-forth movements. Hold the polisher at a slight angle. This will allow some air in and enable the compound to spread more evenly.

  6. 6

    As the compound gets spread around the surface, move the polisher back and forth slightly faster. Keep going over the area until all marks have been removed. At this point, the polisher can be held flat against the surface.

  7. 7

    Once all marks have been removed and the surface is smooth and shiny, shut off the polisher and wipe the surface with a finishing cloth.
