These days all I do is a quick two bucket wash and blow excess water off with a leaf blower and my black car stays looking brand new. I threw away most of my detailing stuff actually.

So do you use ONR at all? And how often are you washing it?

The sheeting action of the coating is the big draw for me given that my car is huge. I can never get all the way around drying it before water spots start to set in, requiring a detailing spray and some further elbow grease to make it right. The leaf blower trick sounds great though! Are you running some kind of filter on it to prevent crap in the air getting blasted over the paint while drying?

I wonder if this is the same stuff as above. I might have to try this out regardless.

Here's a little tip for what we do.

Wash panel
Leave panel wet
Spray panel with Optimum Car Wax OR Meguiar's Spray wax (or a spray sealant)
Wipe dry with drying towel

Voila. Wash/Wax or Wash/Seal in one step.

Again, as I said early in this thread or the other one... it doesn't matter if your car is coated or uncoated. It's impossible to NOT get wash marring - but you can take steps to mitigate it.

Guys with foam cannons: What soap?

Gonna give CG Honeydew Foam a shot, grabbed all this stuff as well and should be stocked for the first go on the LS.

Honeydew is apparently the greatest for that thick foam. Not sure how thick it will get with your pressure washer bit it should be pretty good

I personally use Mr Pink and a Detailers Pride shampoo. Mr Pink is nice as it's highly lubricated.

Bad paint job, very bad paint job.

I'm just trying to figure how this product works, if it still stays on the car after wiping it away how will waxing react to it.

x2 for Honeydew plus it smells great!

Mr. Pink is good and also the Meguiar's Gold Class is great as well. Just depends what you prefer

I mean if I decide to keep this thing I'll probably track it at some point. Summit Point and VIR aren't that far away and I haven't heard of any issues with the VA STi's having problems when tracking them even completely stock.

I probably wash every 3-4 weeks and thatís normally due to brake dust piling up. I have yet to use my ONR yet, it may not be necessary.

Got a bottle of this cheap and I'm excited to try it out. Heard this was one thing from CG that is actually worth a damn.

Wax is totally fine. I've used countless different waxes after ONR washes with no ill-effects.

Is that 'jet seal'? Sorry, I'm not very familiar with CG products.

Hybrid V7 spray sealant

Basically spray after a wash to retain a glossy finish and help with water beading

Gonna use it between full details with a polish/wax at the end

This is Jet Seal...



I ordered a bottle before realizing a coating was what I was actually looking for so now have both on the way.

Figured it made sense since most of us are now at the point where we have the car we want, desires for mods are modest, but working to keep them looking great for as long as possible gives a car guy something to do. The boards are growing up

What's the point of having a car you like and not keeping it clean?

I see so many people driving around in brand new cars they don't wash or give a **** about. They're also probably the same people that have a garage full of stuff and they park their cars outside. I will never understand those people.

I finally picked up a few bottles when it was $8 around Xmas.

I've used it twice, once as a wax/sealer and once as a spray detailer, I am very happy with it, provides a nice shine and decent "Shell",

They also make a wash/shampoo, may wait for price to drop and pick that up too.
