    Thanks for sharing.

    I was playing around with CarPro Extreme Gloss Enhancer because it offers some light correction plus sealing with Si02 - interesting product.

    I predict “cleaner/coatings” or “cleaner/ AIOs” are the new trend for the future.

    I am loving Essence Plus which I bought earlier this year by mistake. After correcting my personal I decided to try it, back in July. I put Essence Plus essentially same way GG with black pad at speed 3. I applied it kind of thick and didn’t buff until I was done with whole car, plus an hour lunch. I didn’t top it with anything. I like that it hazed and easily spot areas I missed or were light. In my opinion it’s looks better and lasted longer than Reload.
    Awaiting my Beadmaker order and will be trying a Essence Plus and Beadmaker combo.

    definitely looks like a great combo & quick. I have a question. can I substitute the MF pad for a foam pad ? I don't own any MF pads & don't want to starting buying them just to trying this combo(on my own vehicles). I have the rupes system with their pads & the porter cable with many lake county pads. one vehicle is 2015 Black ram & the other is a new mustang. the pickup has been detailed but I'm anxious to get going on the mustang. also when I do the pickup I'm not trying to get every single swirl out. the clear coat seems pretty soft & I don't want to remove to much. I plan on keeping this truck for many more years. thanks and great work as always.

    So first after the cars are washed

    I apply a thin layer of essence plus
    over the whole car...
    I leave the ceramic sealant on the car
    until the whole thing is done.

    Now once the car is done I use sonax PNS
    and spray 2 vertical lines on a panel and
    wipe the full length of the panel


    So I have about a dozen cars this combo is on
    that are approaching a year and the customers
    love the look, the protection and the price.
    •Interesting overall steps/process.

    •Just curious about the car-washing Step:
    -Since you have:
    ”stopped washes altogether for 2018...”
    -Then: how, when, where, and by whom does
    it take place? TIA.

    I think he just meant he doesn't do just car washes. He wants to do more so he still washes the car in order to coat/protect the car. But once that's done, you can't come back next week for a simple car wash.

    Strange combo for sure. I had great hope for Essence Plus after falling in love with Essence on a microfiber pad. Essence Plus just never delivered the gloss I expected on top of a coating. Been a big fan of PNS forever as one of the most durable sealants on the market unfairly knocked for not being slick, love it topped with BDS. I’ve got two large bottles of Essence Plus gathering dust so maybe I’ll give this a try. I just worry about PNS not bonding well with Essence Plus.

    Nice work, I’ve found PNS sticks well to pretty much any base layer product it’s so heavy and sticky on application. With your Essence Plus, mine is crazy separated in the bottle and doesn’t like to mix very well back together, is this normal for you?
