How do I use AMMO WÄFL Finishing Pad

1. Center WÄFL pad on the polisher backing plate and lay on work bench with the pad facing up.

2. Prime pad with AMMO X-FOLIATE in 3 to 4 concentric circles.

3. Massage X-FOLIATE into every pore of the foam while wearing clean latex gloves. Do not massage with unprotected skin.

4. Place the pad face down on the paint before pulling the variable speed trigger for 20 seconds stationary.

5. Gently pump the pad up and down on the paint to prime the pad and force X-FOLIATE through the pores of the pad.

6. Once primed, add 3 small dots and work a 2x2 foot section of the paint at a time.

TIP: For best results, keep machine speed between 2.5 and 3. Blow out or clean the pad with a microfiber towel frequently, then reapply a large X-shape of X-FOLIATE on the pad before moving on to the next panel.

AMMO WÄFL Finishing Pad FAQ

Q: What is a Finishing Pad?

A: The WÄFL finishing pad is designed for light polishing refinement and removal of minor paint defects. Paired with X-FOLIATE Polishing Fluid, this combo is perfect for a one-step correction or after the cutting step of AMMO SHEER. Rejuvenates paint clarity, luster, and distinctness of image.

Q: What difference does the Waffle design make?

A: The Waffle design allows for better air flow to maintain a cooler paint temperature and longer working time (both pad & paint). The non-tapered edge allows a clear line of sight for precision correction on complex body panels.

Q: Why should I prime the pad?

A: Priming the pad typically softens a fresh pad followed by a blow out which removes any loose particles and pushes the polish into the foam.

WAFL

I have had a couple of opportunities to use the new WAFL pads and X-Foliate.

As Larry says, this is a very safe way to approach your minor paint corrections and "Love mark" removal. What I like about the combo, is that I was able to use it on very thin paint, and after a couple of passes, I get improvement, but only took the paint down 0.1 Mil or less (maybe rounding in there). I also used is on some older single-stage paint, and knew it would be gentle and not remove a lot of material. cleaning with CA is required, as expected and is no issue.
It runs cool and you can modulate your pressure to take full advantage of the "WAFL" face and compression of the nibs.
I got good life out of the pad. I did an 86 Gand Prix, full paint correction and was using it by itself, and where safe, in combo with the Cutting pad, both with X-Foliate. Great results, it was a black car.

I keep these in inventory. I have other pads, and will use them for wheels and very specific applications. I have multiple-size machines, so other pads are needed. That said, the X-Foliate and the WAFL and/or the cutting pads are where I start and create an approach from there.

In Larry's most recent YouTube, he talked about dedicating a WAFL to window "polishing". I am anxious to give it a try. Its the episode with the NSX.

Just a few more examples of Larry's meticulous approach to putting products out that are extremely helpful for people like me that are not pros, but his products make us look like pros.

Well done.

This straight cut edge foam pad is amazing to work with. Cut and finish is better than any other foam pad I've used. Prime this pad correctly and you will have amazing results. It's my new go to pad.

Really easy to use for light refinement or some light cutting. Very good combo with exfoliate.
