    I apply by hand with Adam's hex applicators, but it can totally be done with a DA/Rotary.

    Any DA buffer you recommend? It's too hot in TX to do it by hand lol.

    Come on man! I'm here in Oklahoma. It's not that bad by hand. Definitely recommend doing any coatings, sealants, or waxing on cool panels in the shade. I did mine inside the garage.

    But if you're wanting a DA, I think the best bang for the buck has to be a Torq with some high quality pads from Lake Country. I'd only use a fine polishing pad or a waxing pad to apply any sealants or waxes.

    haha fair enough. I don't have a usable garage so I think with a DA I can get it done faster and apply the wax more evenly.

    Understood! A DA will get the job done for sure. Both of those products I recommended should go on quite thin too. Just makes the removal way easier. Plus, more product on the panel would just be a waste.

    The best waxes can go on in the sun. There is no reason to need for a carnuba/poly wax to "dry."

    I only use Meguier products on my cars. For exterior I us hand glaze rather than machine glaze.
