    He said Essence+ so it's not the abrasive one.

    Re: Entry level combo that's made me a ton of $$$

    I took a little slant on this combo. I had to get a family members truck done this weekend in only a couple hours. Did a quick RW. It was a white truck so I took DG 501/601 and went over the truck. Without wiping the 501 off I applied Sonax in the same method as originally described here by spraying lines over the panels and wiped both off together. It seemed to work really well. Looks great.

    I haven’t done a water test in it but it does seem to have a much less grabby feel than Sonax alone does.

    Thx
    I market it as an entry level ceramic. If the customer is not familiar with the benefits of ceramic I normally suggest this. So they get the feeling of what a ceramic and do, look like and how it can preform compared to traditional waxes.

    So I've noticed from the countless testing I've done with polishes, waxes, sealants and coatings that some of not all will wipe away and level with no issue when a spray is used in conjunction to remove them.

    Now also keep in mind that the ceramic from polish angel is applied in liquid paste form and tells you to allow it to sit on the paint for an hour or more before you wipe it away.

    I'm doing 3 cars with it as we speak, looking at a few new combos with the items that are releasing this upcoming year as well

    Maybe hard to see but the essence plus is laid down with a 7 inch pad

    Also just to test I left it on the car for 4 hours and there was no wipe off issues at all and that was without using a spray of any sorts.

    I didn't realize that Essence Plus could be used on bare paint. I always thought that it was a repair for coatings. This sounds like a great combination. I would like to hear more about the longevity.

    Yes, it even says I'm the description. I tell all my clients if can last up to 1 year if property cared for but to expect between 6 plus months in daily wear and tear environments. I've had 1 car..1 this year that failed at 3 months and came back for warranty work. Out of about 200 or so cars with this or similar combos I'd say that's pretty good.
