    Looking for an LSP suggestion

    Looking for input on an lsp. Iím not going the coating route just yet. This is for my dd, a 2020 Honda passport in grey. Car gets driven 60 or so miles daily, is garaged, and I try to wash it weekly.

    Looking for decent durability, something that has good water behavior and dirt shedding, and frankly I am looking for ease of use. Having two young boys takes up a lot of my time. Lol

    id like a drying aid/booster suggestion as well, as I really do like using something at every wash.

    the griots 3 in 1 has definitely caught my eye, so thoughts on that are appreciated as well.

    fire away. Thanks.

    Griot's 3 in 1. It does everything at a pretty high level. You can get bump up the hydrophobic quality of it by going a tad heavier with it, on well prepped paint. Strip whatever was on it for max durability, including what the polish leaves behind.

    Made in the US too, in-house. You'd be hard pressed to find something better.

    This was recently applied and for the first time applied heavier than before. Most of the independent YT testing shows it outlasts most of the comparable products as well.

    Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Spray Coating 16 oz.

    Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Wet Wax - 53410


    JMO and your going to get many. It does not get any more easy then these 2 products. First use the spray coating. Then maintain with the wet wax as your drying aid. Been using this combo for some time now. Stellar results, for me anyway. Sheds dirt right off. After a rain, if the truck was just washed and not moved, it dries spotless!

    Re: Looking for an LSP suggestion

    Griots Garage 3 in 1 is a great base product, no doubt about itLooking for an LSP suggestionThere's also their Ceramic Wash to do those weekly washes, works great in a foam gun for pre-wash, if it's dusty it should be able to do spray/dwell/rinse and dry, haven't used it as a soap during a 2BM though but keep in mind this is NOT going to foam as much as it's got ceramic protection in it. Finally the Griot's Garage Ceramic Speed Shine as a drying aid (if you don't use their Ceramic Wash) is an option and when the truck is just a little dusty. While we're talking Griot's Garage they have GREAT towels for drying the truck, applying Ceramic Speed Shine, etc.

    Yeah, I like Griot's Garage as I've been a customer since 2005Looking for an LSP suggestionLooking for an LSP suggestion

    Re: Looking for an LSP suggestion

    There's so much good and GREAT out there right nowLooking for an LSP suggestionLooking for an LSP suggestionLooking for an LSP suggestion

    Great example was this morning at C&C. My buddy Hectour brought his DD, a Fiesta ST, in black, out to the meet. It was detailed by him and another buddy of ours months ago. This car is outside 24/7 and can go 2 weeks w/o a wash at times. So yesterday he used TWHS ceramic wash and TWHS Wet Wax as a drying aid and when he pulled in I swore he detailed the car, it looked THAT greatLooking for an LSP suggestion

    Here's a pic he took after C&C somewhere:

    Re: Looking for an LSP suggestion

    I think the TW ice seal & shine would work nicely for you
    1) Its inexpensive, around $10 per
    2) You can get it anywhere ( Wally world, auto zone etc.. ) & dont have to order / wait on it
    3) Easy & fast application and pretty good durability
    4) If you try it and dont like it- you have nothing into it ( compared to most everything out there )

    No arguments here but don't sleep on the ICE wax eitherLooking for an LSP suggestion To keep them fresh wash with the TWHS ceramic wash and use that same ICE spray wax as a drying aid every other week for the "always fresh look"Looking for an LSP suggestionLooking for an LSP suggestion

    Re: Looking for an LSP suggestion

    Yeah-- its hard to beat the new TW line of products for value and convenience. There are boutique products out there that are better but for the average Joe and your DD -- its hard to beat-- real hard

    Re: Looking for an LSP suggestion

    Based upon your desire for "Looking for decent durability, something that has good water behavior and dirt shedding," I'd suggest you use FK-1000 for your LSP and then the TW products for drying aid and spiffer-uppers.
    Fk-1000 gives great protection, it's easy on-easy off, and lasts so you'll have time for your boys.
    Good luck whatever you choose.
