    You could apply it by hand or by machine. Work it into the paint, apply it thin, let it dry (using the swipe test method to see if it is dry) and remove. If you can, put a second coat on it, 12 hours later.

    It can be applied easily by hand, just applying thin coats with a Hi-Tec Foam Applicator. 2 thin coats is best.

    If you have never done much detailing before, it is meant to be used on a prepped surface, that means some kind of cleaning/polishing steps done first. If you wanted to keep it easy for yourself, using a cleaner/wax first followed up with the #21 would be a nice easy detail for you.

    Of course there is always more you can do, but its up to you how far you want to go. Here are a few links you can read over just incase you are new to detailing.

    If the surface is not properly prepared you will not see the maximum results of the product. Read over the links Murr supplied you with. Ask some questions. Then you can go from there.

    I agree with all the advice above, but would also add that once you go through the proper prep cycle and finish with #21, you can reapply #21 after a simple wash/dry as long as the vehicle has been washed regularly. I'll do the full detail in the Spring and again in late Fall, with one or two intermediate wax-only (#21) jobs in between.

    I think at a minimum I would precede #21 with clay and Cleaner/Wax (or Color X) in the Spring and refresh the #21 along with regular washing for the duration.
