Default RE LIQUID GLASS

I have read many of the posts on putting liquid glass on after using the claybar and washing. I was wondering if the liquid glass needs to be used with a buffer, or can it just be applied by plain old elbow grease? If the right amount of effort was put in manually, would it be possible to get good results.
Thanks, Danny

i did not use a buffer on my car. You would want to use the precleaner and maybe buff out your car before applying for best results if you have clear coat scratches, but it is not necessary.

the first time i tried it, i applied without buffing and was amazed like everyone else.

It is easily done by hand. Doesn't take long to put on at all.

By hand works just fine.

I did find one thing that makes it a bit faster/easier for me. After a hand application and good baking, i use the Mother'* Powerball to remove it. The Powerball is very malleable and gets into all of the grooves, edges etc. It generates a dust storm, so I give the car a quick swipe with the California duster. Then a walkaround with a cloth to check for any blurs.
