    Bought polishing Pads which way up use?

    Just bought pads for polish and black fire paint sealer-pads have textured surfaced and flat at the other. Stupid question but I'm guessing I use the end with the textured surface and not the flat end?

    Was the order through PB? Which pads are they? At a guess, the 3M pads?

    You're right, the flat surface will be the side that attaches to the backing plate on your machine (on that subject, what machine are you using them with...? DA/rotary?) Have you read all the machine polishing guides etc on Polished Bliss' site? DetailingWorld?

    Let us know how you get on; Blackfire Wet Diamond is a great product

    I'm guessing it's the Blackfire Ultimate Hand Applicator Pad: Blackfire Ultimate Applicator Pad | Blackfire Car Care & Detailing Products

    If it is, use either side but I prefer the flat side.
