How long before to need to replace the pad?
I buy the pads by the dozen. As they clog, I toss them in a bucket of hot soapy water and clean them out. After about four cleanings they are toast.
I have to say that, this works for me. I firmly believe that polishing takes working out a system that works for you. What is "a perfect polish" varies from one person to the next. Everyone has a different level of what is except able. I know I was doing 75 as I passed you Richard, but Anna is one shiny gal...

Right on Frank. If I had indoor storage I would go for even shinier, but it's a losing battle with it parked underline trees in Georgia.
