    Re: Quick winter wash/ wax recommendations

    I’m 100% with you on the RWs. OP doesn’t have a garage though.

    My wife gets sooo pissed when I hijack her car on weekends. We have 3 cars total, but she doesn’t know how to drive stick (my Acura)...

    Re: Quick winter wash/ wax recommendations

    Just to follow up even though it seems you’ve alleviated your concerns anyways with yellosuzku, the coating bonds enough before the water spots would ever dry, and water spots aren’t too bad in the...

    Post Your Beading Shots!!!

    She doesn’t get much publicity around here anymore (perhaps I’ll soon find out why), but Mother’s CMX beading looks pretty nice a few days after 2 applications on the TSX (base coat PBL sealant). ...

    Re: Quick winter wash/ wax recommendations

    At the point you’ve used Hydro Blue or Hydroseal, the product has mixed with the water you rinsed with and it essentially becomes the coating. You won’t get water spots under the coating, the...

    Re: Quick winter wash/ wax recommendations

    Hydroseal and Hydro Blue don’t require drying afterwards, it’s only recommended for the same reason anyone would want to dry after any wash: prevent water spots/marks. If you are OK rinsing the car...

    Re: PBL Paint Coating

    Good choice. I didn’t realize you were specifically talking about PBL Booster (I’m assuming you are now). I would only include that in your routine if you really feel the need to touch the paint...

    Re: McKee's 37 SiO2 Series

    I want to do a comparison of Mckees Ceramic Wash, TW Hybrid Solution Ceramic Wash and WG Uber SiO2 Wash, but I can’t exactly split a car in 3 to get a fair comparison. And I don’t have 3 unprotected...

    Re: My new car: 2000 Cadillac DHS

    Awesome work, Eldo! This caddie looks amazing now. I was a bit nervous scrolling down after you first showed the interior shots but you cleaned that up amazingly well. The car is now fit for you! ...

    Re: PBL Paint Coating

    My take, in addition to others’:
    1) You can use ONR... not optimal to keep coating characteristics but it’s not going to cause noticeable differences mist likely if you don’t want to purchase N-914...

    Re: Ceramic (type) quick spray?

    And if you want to try the Merlin but have reservations about squandering liquid gold without knowing the results... try a 16oz bottle (1/2oz Cosmic) or even an 8oz (1/4oz Cosmic) mix.

    I should...

    Re: Ceramic (type) quick spray?

    Try EcH20 at 15:1 or 20:1. IMO it has plenty of lubricity, which isn’t a knock on CarPro’s recommendations, but a compliment to the lubricity of the product. I use 15:1 for WW and I go down to 20:1...

    Re: A little PNS experiment coming up

    Note that unprotected paint tends to hold on to water pretty equally, so it may also dry fairly quickly. This compared to beads which are piles of water that can actually dry rather slowly (when a...

    Re: McKee’s Tire coating

    My 16oz bottle is from when it came out (2018 maybe?). Worked fine as of a few months ago. It is acrylic based I believe. It won’t have the crystallization problem that SiO2 coatings have.

    Re: McKee's 37 SiO2 Series

    The tire coating ya great if you rigorously clean the tire (especially if it ever had dressings in it). A single application won’t last a year but I think a 4oz bottle will last a few years for two...

    If you do want some QD-like cleaning ability, or if you don’t care about cleaning... I’ve been mixing my own Merlin elixir of 1.5oz EcH2O and 2oz PA High Gloss, the rest distilled water in a 32oz...

    I’m only bothered by the thought of chemicals including SiO2 (the nano-particles I suppose) entering my lungs and causing health issues. Otherwise smells don’t bug me. Am I OK wearing the simpler...

    Add CarPro Elixir, which I haven’t used but should meet your needs. I like the PBL SiO2 Detailer.

    Some waxes (or hybrid sealant/waxes) also fill better than others. Most carnauba waxes fill well in my experience. Megs NXT/M21 fills really well but they may have enough cleaning power to impact...
