same as i do it!! lol i have mine in a lot of pieces. then i also use soapy water from my mr. clean gun. i use small portions at a time like you said just in case if you drop one. which i have then i have to throw the little piece away then get a new piece out wet it then back to work. Then hand waxing it. It takes hours to do my truck.
