    I've been using Acrylic Prime for a couple of years now and always applied and removed by hand but I have a DA now so I wouldn't mind using that.

    What is the process with a DA.

    Do I still apply is by hand then use the DA to remove - what speed should I be doing this at?

    Or

    Do I apply it via the DA?

    Thanks

    I'd always apply by DA - a more consistent coverage and it's easier than burning your shoulder muscles! :p

    I had pretty good results on a light blue E-Class Merc last year sometime by using Prime with the DA on a polishing pad. Spread at low speads and then worked for a little while at Speed 5. Residues removed by hand with a clean MF and job's a good'en!
