Great work as usual.

How is the Rim shield? Haven't seen too many reviews about it......

And what is the best applicator u offer for Wolf's glass guard? I was using a yellow foam applicator before.

the rim shield works great.

the best applicator pad I usually use the corner of an Uber All Purpose MF Towel.
