I probably should have used at least 10cc's.

    I think the time frame is within the first two hours and that initial coat is likely most important.

    If you got it spread out and even coverage you will be fine. Laying it on thicker doeasn’t increase durability. Doing a second coat might.

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    I wasn't happy with the patchy results from my last application of 303 on my tyres, and there was still some mud hiding in some nooks and crannies. I also noticed I got some over spray on the upwind side, all the way up to the roof. So I cleaned the tyres with some Carpro Eraser and a scrubbing brush. Then reapplied the 303 in the garage, let it soak in for an hour, then removed the excess. Then wiped the whole car over with Bowden's Boss Gloss, to remove any more over spray.What did you do today, in regards to detailing?-psx_20211026_153148-jpgWhat did you do today, in regards to detailing?-psx_20211026_153305-jpg

    Washed the XR8 and Ranger today. The weather was perfection today, sunny skies and 22 deg C / 72 deg F.

    This is beading is after applying Gyeon Q2 Wax -



    I also continued to trail P&S Dream Maker on the Ranger.

    If we don't get too much rain, I can get 3 - 4 weeks on the FJ. On the Qashqai, which lives in the garage, and only gets driven once a week, 2 months easy, except for the front passenger tyre, which gets rubbed on the gutter almost every time it's driven.

    I hadn't washed the ES since last Sat, weather has been horrible but the ES didn't look as bad as you'd think after storms and TEN DAYSWhat did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    I used my lunch hour, which I take at the end of the day (I can explain if need be) to do a WW. I used DG RW for the majority of the wash and finished up with Feynlab because I used up the DG WW. I also used the Feynlab WW to clean the tires and wheel faces, also sprayed some up in the wheelwells and let it dwell.

    It came out great and only needed 4 plush, edgeless microfiber towels for the body/glass, that 75th Anniversary graphene and ceramic paste wax from TW has some incredible self-cleaning abilitiesWhat did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    Our parts department moved next door into an old HD dealership, so atleast the pics look different this timeWhat did you do today, in regards to detailing? The tires had a natrual look when I was done but when I got home I applied a fresh coat of Adam's graphene tire dressing to complete the FRESHNESSWhat did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    The Qashqai got a free tyre check up, 4 months since the new Continentals were fitted. They say they check the balance, but I suspect all they do is rub their greasy fingerprints on the wheels. So I gave them a wipe down with Boss Gloss. At least this time they didn't leave greasy prints on the door handle. The Contis have been awesome though, so much grip, but also much quieter.What did you do today, in regards to detailing?-psx_20211027_170410-jpg
