    Re: Anyone tried P21S carnuba wax?

    P21S has several products. I used the P21S carnauba before I went ceramic and it held up well and gave a nice wet look and was easy to work with. I used it on blue paint.

    Re: Touch up pen

    I have used both the pen and the brush. I like the brush better even for the smallest rock chip. I find the pen too hard to put on evenly while a brush you can control how much you put on.

    Re: Marred Ceramic coating

    If you got sap on it and it didn't wipe off I would say you have reached the end of life on the ceramic. I have Adams and tree sap wipes right off. I think the last thing you want to do with sap is...

    Re: maintaining MF towels...

    I think they hold up better without the heat. Seems they like to attract lint when in the dryer. I imagine you could tumble dry with no heat but I have room to hang mine so it's not a big deal to...

    Re: claybar recomendations

    you cannot polish or do paint correction in the sun. The surface has to be cool to the touch. Maybe on a overcast cooler day you could get away with it but I always do it inside. A one step product...

    When I say polish I use a DA and a product like Meguiars Ultra Polish with a white pad. This is the last step in any correction. It can also be done by itself. After you polish you want to protect...

    Re: how often should i buy microfiber towels?

    They can last a long time if you take care of them. I wash in a scentless (must be scentless) detergent and air dry, do not dry in a dryer. If a towel gets dirty then it passes to the wheel pile or...

    Re: Honda Accord

    I would suggest expel. If you have to pick between ceramic and expel cover the front of the car and rockers first. Ceramic will not stop scratches or swirl marks but expel will stop rock chips.

    Re: Am I claying too hard?

    If you're pushing that hard you must be making a mess. You let the clay glide over the paint with minimal pressure. Start with a good car wash, then Iron X, tar and bug, then clay, then a second...

    California Blade

    Going to try out Griots rinseless wash. Does anyone use a California blade to dry instead of drying microfiber? Is there any hazing or do you still need to buff.
