    12 Washes with ONR (Sun Pic's)

    Since I had some AG Forum members wanting to see if swirls/scratches were present when viewing in the Sun after washing my DD with ONR (12 times),I went out this morning to take some pictures.
    I just want to make it clear when my/customers vehicles are as dirty/salty in my other "12 Washes with ONR (Heavy Pic's)" thread,I DO take it to the local car wash and pressure wash the vehicles (water only) to blast off all the dirt/salt as I can.As I mentioned in my other thread.

    If the sun pictures are not convincing for the one's who wanted to see my DD in the sun after 12 washes with ONR,well I don't know what to tell you but to each their own.

    Here are some sun shots I took this morning:






















    I am NOT saying ONR is a miracle product BUT if you have your technique proper and use common sense,ONR is pretty Impressive.
    Come spring I WILL be using ONR on my BLACK TransAm and I am confident with the "Proper Technique",the TA's finish will remain swirl/scratch free.
    Just like using car shampoo with a bucket,if your method for washing is NOT correct or if you DON'T use common sense you WILL get some marring and scratching!

    But for ME,ONR works well!

    BTW,I will mention ALL my ONR washes are done with the Opti-Mitt and for ME the combo works well.

    Looks pretty darn good to me. Good follow up on the previous thread. And like you said not a miracle product but a very impressive product to say the least.

    Excellent. Did you use the Opti-Mitt for all 12 of these washes or was there any other media that you used?

    As the old saying goes " a picture is worth a thousand words " having used ONR since it came out I knew your car could be washed as was without marring. some people just do not feel comfortable using it and that is their choice. for the rest of us, using good technique it is a great item in our arsenal. I have always loved a reflection with snow in the background..... must be a northern thing LOL !

    Sorry, I'm not satisfied with those pics. Can you try again?

    Seriously though, how long does an ONR wash take you? Timed from when you make the first pass with ONR to the last pass.

    Thanks!

    Guess I'll have to pick up an Opti-Mitt to try... I've been using microfiber wrapped sponges so far with good results but the foam mitt might be better.
