    Re: Sealant comparison

    Washed the Rover and Sentra with CarPro Reset using a Big Red Sponge. Wash the Boxster using N-914 and MF towels.

    Collinite 845 and DG 104 are both doing well, of course. They're both clearing water very quickly. With 845 I don't see the water run off - it's just gone immediately. I'm still seeing similar performance from Sonax Spray + Seal. Ultima waterless is also still working after 5 weeks.

    DG 931 as a QD (6:1 ratio) is finally done after 13 weeks. This seems crazy and I'm hoping somebody else will test this as a reality check. McKee's Hydro Blue is also done.

    Re: Sealant comparison

    Added 3 more long term sealants. The weather was not as warm as I expected and I added these late in the day in ~70 degree weather. Hoping they cure well before we get rain. If not, I'll remove and reapply next week. It looks like a few days of 70 degree weather are expected next week. After that I'll likely have to apply products in the garage with a heater.

    These were applied to the driver side front door of the Rover. I polished it with a LC black pad and DG Squeaky Clean, followed by washing twice with CarPro Reset. Here's a video of the water sheeting. About a minute for the door to clear completely.

    Duragloss 111, FK 1000, and Collinite 915 were added.

    All the new long term products on the Rover are doing well. The DG products (104 and 111) are not shedding water as fast as the others. If we get some warmer temps this week I'll get a few more products added. I need to test Soxan Spray + Seal outside on the Rover. It's doing remarkably well on the garaged Boxster.

    Red Mist, MS #1, and Scholl Concepts Barracuda are done. Red Mist looks like another nice Dodo product.

    The DG products (104 and 111) are slowing down faster than expected. For DG 111 the temp may be been too low to cure well. DG 104 had enough heat.

    Ultima Waterless is done. This did amazingly well for a waterless wash. This and DG 931 as a QD are far ahead of anything else I've tested in terms of sheeting water for a QD or Waterless wash. DG gets the vote for cost, Ultima for ease of use.

    DG 104 and DG-111 are slowing down more quickly than I expected. DG 111 may not have had adequate temps to cure.

    Rover (video)
    Collinite 845 - 2 seconds (one small area, most of it is clearing in 1 second)
    DG 104 - 7 seconds
    DG 111 - 10 seconds - this is very surprising. This may not have had adequate temp to cure
    Collinite 915 - 2 seconds
    FK 1000P - 4 seconds

    Sentra (video)
    Ultima Waterless - 12 seconds (calling it done)

    Sonax Spray and Seal - 2 seconds

    Re: Sealant comparison

    Was Menzerna Power Lock+ part of the testing? Even though it's not as new as some entries it's still an excellent performer I've found.

    I haven't tried Menzerna Power Lock, nor Jescar, which I assume is the same product. I can only buy so many $30+ sealants to use $0.50 worth. I've bought quite a few and traded for many. The ones I buy first are those with sample sizes.

    Edit: Just noticed that Jescar sells samples. Ordered some. May not get get it applied until Spring, but we'll see how Winter goes.
