    Suggestion for white Focus paint AIO/LSP application

    Our babysitter just got a 5-6 year old white Ford Focus and I want to hook her up with a cleaning and winter/spring protection. It’s her 2nd and best cat she’s owned and she’s quite thankful for it, wants to keep it nice! I’m impressed with her attitude.

    I have so much stuff I don’t use that I think is good on white paint and durable, so I’m particularly having the following in mind to apply during a quick 2 hour detail (will include wash):
    FK1000p
    PNS / BSD
    DG 105 / 601
    Mckees 360

    Initial thoughts:
    I think she would be pleasantly surprised how the white will look polished, otherwise I would just slap a coat of PNS or FK1000p after a chemical wash and be done. I don’t think Ill have enough time to do a good polish with Mckees 360 after a wash.

    So, seems like DG 105/601 is my best bet since I think it can be applied quickly being only a cleaner sealant with no abrasives. I may follow with PNS or FK1000p a week later, but Sunday I’m just concerned with the 501 cleaning.


    QuestionS for forum:
    - Since I’ve never used 105 with 601, please help me: do I mix the two on a pad together and apply, or is it best to apply 601 then 501 on top of the dry residue? I know directions are the latter but I thought I read about the former being effective, and obviously quicker if that works.

    - Also, does anyone see any reason why PNS or FK1000p might not bond to DG 105 a week or two later?

    - And of course if anyone sees a way better process for a quick clean and protect given the products above, feel free to give feedback!

    Edit: - And, is there any point in using a polishing pad for 105 even though I’ll be moving very quickly, or is a LC black/red the way to go?

    Thanks for helping the women who helps out with my son!

    Don't mix the 501+601 on a pad, rather, mix them together in a small disposable container/cup, and stir occasionally during use. Since they (Duragloss) say the "working time" is approx. 2 hrs., don't mix any more than you will need.

    Thank you! I’m so sorry to all but I meant DG 105 this whole thread, not 501. Hopefully that doesn’t change the responses. Original post updated.

    Mix 50/50?

    4 parts 105 to 1 part 601.

    Per this - 16 oz. - Duragloss TPP (Total Performance Polish)


    P.S. - You can mix 601 with 105, 111, or 501.
