    The life of a quick detailer is short lived unless it is one that is meant to leave protection behind. A typical non-protection QD will only alter the surface tension but again that is short lived and usually gone after a wash or two. Tested this myself with various QD's that leave nothing behind. Same can be said for a waterless wash or rinseless wash. At least that is my two cents. Not saying I am right but rather just experience from using many products.

    Sometimes we tend to overthink things rather than just enjoy using the products.

    also just curious how many cars you have?
    That's a coating prep polish in the pic. It has zero abrasives, so the quantity of polish used isn't really a big deal, other than wasting product and a lot of polish to wipe off.

    If it was a polish with abrasives, that would be way too much to use, generally speaking.

    Ok so here's how it went...

    I did just like you asked, D114@1:128 [tad bit over]



    1 gallon in the bucket



    Washing my Cadillac, so no willy nilly stuff going on... 2 microfiber towels to rinseless wash my car to ensure no swirls are instilled...



    Don't worry, I've thought about everything... Didn't use the Big Blue to dry as it's "contaminated" with Wolfgang Uber.. Used a fresh clean Cobra to dry.



    Good wipedown...



    Used both sides to give it an extra cleaning... Then dried.



    .... These pics are gonna suck, but...





    Trust me, it's sheeting. It's actually sheeting better than I thought it'd be.





    The hood is nearly dry after sheeting.. Could there be a bit of Ech2o/Reload still on the paint? Possibly, but it's doing pretty good.
