Does anyone have a link to the instructions for Finesse it II? I'm getting ready to polish after going through all the grades of the 3M Micro Mesh Soft Touch pads, but I bought my Finesse It over a year ago, and the English instructions have fallen off the bottle at some point, leaving only Spanish ones behind. I've done a couple of net searches, but can't find anything on the actual usage instructions. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it. This is my first refinish, so I've never polished before, and would prefer not to screw it up too badly.
Thanks,
jb

I just apply it with a soft cotton rag, rubbing rather vigorously in circles, let it dry, then buff it out by hand.

I apply it with a Meguiars buffing attachment I bought at advance auto parts that works with my corded drill.

Thanks, Mark and Sundaram. I used the StewMac drill pads and they worked great. The only down side was it now shows how uneven the top on my CV50s Tele is. I may make a new body for it someday, or flatten it out with my router on a thicknessing jig, but it'll do for now. I've learned a lot in the process. Once I can figure out how to post photos again, I'll put one up.
