    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 :)

    Yes John Blackfire applicator pad and the light cut polishing pad you reccomend. Waiting for the right weather to give full polish and seal..might be a while yet!!
