    Yes it’s new paint. It polished out nice but there’s areas with flaws, solvent pop going on in several spots.

    Speaking of Hyper Dressing, has anyone else noticed there seems to be a shortage of it? I was trying to buy a gallon online this weekend but most places are out of it.

    There have been mentions of that on the Facebook group. People looking for alternatives due to availability.

    Look at the front Vs. back of truck in same photo and you will see what I mean

    Front is warm(sun)...back is cold(shade)


    Absolutely. I had a gray car once and it even tricked my eyeballs, let alone a camera.

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

    On Monday, the Camaro came back from a 1060mile round trip to Az & was cleaner than when it gets used for commuting to work 6 miles away. Altho there were a few bugs on the front (fewer than 2 dozen).
    Gave it a quick wipe down with CSS & cleaned the windshield. Went to Wally World & Costco yesterday in the SB Honda, but earlier there had been a trip in the Camaro to the PO. Was leaving for Wally World & spotted a neatly folded blue MF laying in the middle of the road out front. Picked it up when I got home, must have been left on the deck lid of the Camaro...
    May clean the glass on the SB Honda today (I washed it on Sunday)

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

    Did some experimenting on my new VW. There was still adhesive left on the paint from the window covers. I ended up having to use some polish on a microfiber towel to remove it. Then i clayed a small area and experimented. I found that compound on a microfiber pad removed all but the deepest imperfections really quickly. An orange pad with some carpro essence removed the light swirling pretty well also. At this point im trying to decide if i want to just do a polish over the car and spot treat local issues or do a true two stage. I think i will have to do some more experimenting over a larger area.

    Do you mean go big and compound and polish, or go big with test area?
