Which pads to use for detailing?
 
Which pads would you recommend for detailing with the porter cable model from detailed image? This will be my first time using the pads and buffer.
I have the meguairs compound, megs swirl x, megs nxt 2.0, and megs #26.
I also have the lake country orange, white, black, and blue pads.

if you have the lake country orange,white,black,blue pads then you're set.

orange-compound/swirlx
white- same as above
black - nxt
blue - #26

hope you have at least 23 orange and white each, you can use 1 black and 1 blue for nxt and #26

That is what I was thinking but wasn't sure.

Are you talking about 2-3 or 23 pads?
I have two of each pad if that is what you were talking.

2-3..

2-3 is ok just make sure you clean the pad "on the fly" after every panel or after 1/2 a very large panel(hood,roof etc...)

i haven't personally used the new hydro pads but have heard good things about them.

So how do you clean the pad "on the fly"?

Also what is the difference in the hydro pads?

Im my experience with the hydro pads...they keep the product on the surface longer and dont soak it up like other pads

"Use the Hydro Tech Crimson pads to apply finishing polishes, glazes or even sealants and waxes"

so would replace black/blue/red
