Most only tape the car up if they're doing a polish or paint correction with the Orbital. Might be handy to leave on for the wax (not sure if people do?) but I wouldn't tape it up just for a wax - it takes forever! And with some care it's easy to avoid trim pieces while waxing.

As far as the pads, not sure what the different sides are for on that one. I use the standard yellow ones for wax. With the NB wax, make sure you dampen the pad with water before you start. You might need a little QD on your MF cloth for easier removal too.

Looking good!
