    Pictures: SONAX PNS + Pinnacle Jeweling Wax - Ford vs Chevy


    Yesterday we held a free car detailing class here at Autogeek. We started at 4:00pm and were finished at 6:45pm. That's 2 hours and 45 minutes to,

    1. Clean 8 wheels and tires
    2. Chemically decontaminate the paint on both cars with SONAX Fallout Remover
    3. Foam Gun Wash with BLACKFIRE Foam Soap
    4. Rinse both cars well
    5. Mechanically decontaminate with BLACKFIRE Foam Soap and Clay Mitts
    6. Rinse well
    7. Dry with Guzzler Microfiber Waffle Weave Drying Towels and the Master Blaster
    8. Tape-off with 3M Green Painter's tape and Autogeek Cover-up towels.
    9. Machine polish with Pinnacle Jeweling Wax and foam "polishing" pads
    10. Hand apply SONAX Polymer Net Shield - wipe off with RUPES microfiber towels.
    11. Take the beauty shots and the group shots
    12. Stick a fork in both cars and kick them out the door




    Pictures

    The wheels and tires were very dirty. If you've never tired it before, check out SONAX Wheel Cleaner. It works great and it's SAFE.





    Below you'll find the pictures showing the holograms in the paint when I took pictures OUTSIDE using bright overhead sunlight. You can also see them in this picture using the SCANGRIP Sunmatch Swirl Finder Light. The holograms are the wispy lines running vertical intermixed in the circular swirl scratches.







    The paint on the Chevy Spark was in fairly good shape and the swirls buffed out quick and easy with the Pinnacle Jeweling Wax.






    Here's Robert DiTerlizzi of Impressions Detailing - using the Griot's BOSS 15




    Frank - using the FLEX 3401




    Rob the Harley Detailer using the Griot's BOSS 15




    Antti K Arro of 561 Car Detailing using the FLEX 3401




    Dan aka Danno on this forum using the FLEX XFE15






    Liz - Brian's Wife using the Griot's 6" Random Orbital Polisher






    Craig using the Griot's 3" Mini Polisher




    John using the Makita PO5000C






    After applying and removing the Pinnacle Jeweling Wax, next up we hand applied the SONAX Polymer Net Shield

    This is Brian and his wife Liz. Brian works in Customer Care, many of you reading this have probably spoken with Brian over the phone.






    Dan applying SONAX PNS to the Spark






    Frank applying PNS to the Spark





    After applying the SONAX Polymer Net Shield or PNS, you wait about a minute and then softly wipe-off the excess.







    Next up... the after shots...

    Continued....


    Here's how the Mustang started out....







    Holograms in the hood and the paint is so dull and covered in water spots it's hard to see the tree growing out of the hood?






    When I see water spots like this it makes me never want to drink the water.... what is in the water?





    Huge Random Isolated Deeper Scratch on the roof i.e. RIDS





    The tires are the same color as the brake dust on the wheels!





    Man... that's ugly, I'm pretty confident we have some wheel cleaners and tire cleaners that will make everything look brand new again...

    And for those of you that may have missed this recent article I wrote about PNS, here's the link and the article...


    SONAX Polymer Net Shield - Closest thing to a coating without being a coating

    Anyone that's used this product knows what I'm talking about. It's about durability and how this product creates a hydrophobic surface that sheds water easily. And this is primarily what we like about ceramic paint coatings, that is they last a long time and create a hydrophobic surface that sheds water. The water shedding, that is high surface tension which cause water beading also makes the surface self-cleaning because as the water leaves the surface it takes anything else on the surface off with it, thus self-cleaning.

    The thing about SONAX Polymer Net Shield is it's a lot easier to apply than most coatings and you can apply it to dang near any surface material, at least most car surface materials and by this I mean the primary surface materials found on the outside of a car, i.e. paint, glass and plastic.

    It's NOT for a dirty, contaminated surface, so treat this product like a "finishing wax" or a "finishing sealant", that is the paint must first be clean and smooth to the touch, basically after you have done at least one machine polishing step after washing and claying. The apply to a small section at a time, wait about a minute and then wipe that section before moving onto a new section.

    I tend to apply this to the hood, roof and trunk lid over any cleaner/wax I'm using when detailing a customer car. It's the horizontal surfaces that take the most beating from Mother Nature and also it's these surfaces that most people focus on when "looking" at a car. It's fast, only requires a small amount of product and it dramatically extends the water beading and protection of any cleaner/wax.

    Here's the good news.... it's now available in a pocket-size aerosol container. This is a great way to test this product out and if you end up liking it or like many others including me, loving it, then next time you place an order with Autogeek bump up to the full size can.

    SONAX Polymer Net Shield





    Get them both here,

    SONAX Polymer Net Shield 75 ml. - $9.99

    SONAX Polymer Net Shield 340 ml. $29.99


    SONAX Polymer Net Shield = good stuff....

    It looks like the Pinnacle Jewelling Wax must have more cut than I assumed it had. It really cleaned up that black Mustang well.

    WE found the paint on the Mustang to be of the soft side of "medium". Definitely wasn't hard.

    Everyone was using "polishing" pads for the Jeweling Wax. No cutting pads. Dan did switch over to both a black foam finishing pad and a white and red super soft finishing and waxing pads to try to avoid micro-marring in the paint.
