  1. Re: Wax upkeep with spray wax after drive thru car washes??

    The soaps at those places are probably pretty high, but I found it doesn't really degrade a good LSP all that much.

    Strangely enough since I've started using coatings, the winters have become...
  2. Re: Wax upkeep with spray wax after drive thru car washes??

    Agree. I've never had a touchless car wash get my car clean enough to feel comfortable wiping anything on the car. Too much residue and fine grit left behind. If anything I'd use a touchless for...

    Re: Decal Backing Adhesive Stuck

    Interesting. No idea it caused issues.

    I've always started with Goo Gone and then stepped up to Goof Off for what was left. Won't do that again...

    Re: Before & After

    Funny you mention that.

    We typically get at least 2 good snow storms here each winter and a few others that drop a couple inches. Either way, I have to do some shoveling. Last year we got all of...

    Re: Decal Backing Adhesive Stuck

    What have you used so far? Did you just peal the sticker off?

    Try Goo Gone, Goof Off, or 3M Adhesive Remover. One of those should do the trick.

    Re: Silver vs White

    I've never been a fan of white. My vote is silver, but this is a very personal choice for anyone.

    I freely admit to having issues. Some of my bias started when I was a kid and EVERY rental car...

    Re: Tire Dressing

    My cars have low profile tires too.

    I use the Carrand foam tire dressing applicator from the South American River Site. They used to sell those applicators here long ago, but not any more. You...

    Re: Review - Gyeon Syncro Evo

    There is little/no water in the solvents for those coatings. They have a high petroleum and alcohol content and you'd have to experience some seriously low temperatures to get them to freeze. I've...

    Re: Tire Dressing

    How would you rate your experience of Perl neat vs Perl diluted? My experience doing both was Perl neat was a little thick and it is harder to apply. It just seemed to sit on top of the rubber and...

    I'm so jealous. Yes, that's a real snow storm! Not the 1" we got around here that made people act like it was the end of civilization around here. So far winter has completely missed our part of...

    Re: Quick winter rinse

    For a black car, don't cut corners.

    As already mentioned it can lead to water spots from the minerals. Also, any type of simple rinsing will never get the car totally clean and it WILL show. ...
  13. Re: How to ensure you don't miss spots when using ceramic coatings?

    Most of my normal tips have already been covered, good advice.

    With UK I will do whole panels like doors, trunk lids, fender's etc to avoid the problem. If a roof is featureless, I'll place one...

    Re: CQuartz UK Questions

    Interesting. I applied it to my wife's car when I noticed what I thought was the coating start to fail. The idea was to give it something to get through winter and I'll re-coat the car in the...
  16. Re: Sonax polymer net shield vs collinite 845 for winter ??

    Great advice here. 476 is pretty durable from what I've heard. Collinite rates it above 845, which I have used and made it all winter long with no need for any form of booster.

    My advice is...

    Re: Working with multiple pads

    Yes, you use the same amount on each bad because each pad is most likely being used on a different area of the vehicle. Also you'll be applying more product to the pad each time you move to a new...

    Ah. Makes sense. In that case, 3-in-1 is a very good option.

    Re: CQuartz UK Questions

    I've used and like Griots 3-in-1, but I would not use it as a coating topper. From my experience it's beading and sheeting is not as good as CQ UK. Applying it to the top of the coating would...

    Re: CQuartz UK Questions

    My thoughts.

    1. You don't really need two coats. I would let the car sit for 12~24 hours before driving it. The big thing is to keep the coating dry for 24 hours. If it's a sunny dry day, you...

    Re: Giots 3in1 v Griots Best in Show Detailer

    I wouldn't use 3 in 1 as a QD. It's a spray sealant.

    For a QD, I'm looking for something with lots of lubrication, a little bit of cleaning ability, and any gloss boost is not mandatory, but a...
  24. Re: Need recommendation for first-time ceramic coating, and a couple application questions

    Good coating recommendations so far, so I won't bother with others. I use CQuartz UK most of the time, but don't think it would be a good option for an outdoor application.

    As for weather...

    Re: Car Shampoo for ceramic coating?

    Very late to this party.... Guess that's what I get for "unplugging" over the holiday.

    I'm very happy with using Hyperwash on our coated cars. I used Optimum Car Wash in the past with good...
