    Yeah itís a sport. Itís a 4cyl with a cvt, so yea itís pretty slow, but it looks pretty decent at least. Had to wrap the roof black so it didnít look like all the other ones out there. Bead maker works great on the vinyl wrap too

    Just received a gallon of Bead Maker today. Never tried it before. I look forward to rubbing it on some of our rental vans.

    When I sell detailing, I offer differing service levels depending on budget and expectation and other factors. I have to upsell if I'm providing the best. I'm hoping that this product will be something that produces something nicer than what would be available locally from a parts store or shelf at walmart. At the price, it should be a nice stand alone protection/gloss enhancer for the cheaper level details that 95% of the folks in my area are looking for.

    This is somewhat hypothetical because I haven't sold detailing in quite a while and will be using this product for the fleet of handicap accessible rental vans I maintain.

    I mean't thoughts on how it would work. I knew someone probably did this already just didn't hear about it yet.

    Re: Video: Trying P&S Bead Maker for the first time.

    So, I caught the fever and bought a bottle. Tried it on my wife's car, and thought her car looked as good as it ever had while it sat in the garage. Once she drove it, the shine seemed to be reduced quite quickly. Weather wasn't bad, no rain or snow, but by the time we got to our destination, I just didn't think it looked as glossy as it did in our garage. I figure it was the lights. Her care is silver, and the LSP on the car is 6 week out McKee's 37 High Def Paint Sealant.

    I tried it on my black car the next week. again, car looked great sitting in the garage. Slickness was pretty stellar, too. Got to work the next morning, and again, just didn't maintain the shine. Two days later, the slickness seemed to have returned to what it had been before BM. LSP for this car is McKee's 37 Paint Coating. But I've persisted, and reapplied BM three times now after rinseless washes with N-914. Each time, the shine seems to impress me less and less. Could that be psychological? Sure. But I just don't find myself as impressed as others have been.

    I'm out now. Given the low cost, I can't really say I'm disappointed with Bead Maker, but I can't see myself reordering it.

    MK, I wonder if there's something on the paint? Did you apply it dry the first time around?
