I actually had the best success with the yellow pad, the spider webbing on the hood was so bad. At speed 6 with the intensive polish and then using the white pad and the final polish really did the trick.

It took me a while to get it right but after I figured out how to let the polish break itself down and not rush it, it all came together

Now that the show is over, how do I clean those foam pads?

I use P21S Total Auto Wash but you can use any multipurpose cleaner. Mist the cleaner on to the pad and allow it sit for a few minutes. Blast the pads with stream of water from the hose, squeeze or shake excess water and air dry. That's it. Sometimes a second application of cleaner and light nylon detail brush is need to break up stubborn deposits. You can also hit each pad with a spray of quick detailer as they are drying to condition the pads.

Don't use hot water to clean your pads. Hot water will soften the adhesive backing.

If you have any other questions you know what to do :-)
