Actually, of all the fabulous comments about SG.... there is one bad comment I heard...but this lazy bum never know how to clean his car....he never dry his car until all the water spot were impossible to remove...especially at the bonnet area

So if you wanna add a coat of SG, or whatever product, and just leave the car without taking care of it....even the best coats will not give you the best protection..

Hi there,

I would be really appreciate if you could answer some of my doubt here...

I just done my sierra glow last two months ago, and recently after washing my car, i can see a lot of water spot on my car which i try to wipe it off, but it is just hard to get it off, i m wondering what DIY treatment that i can do to get it off, i saw some comments from web saying using white vinegar, i wonder can i use it? Will is fade away my sierra glow treatment? or any other treatment that is recomended?
Thank you in advance!

If you done Sierra Glow, why not just drop by Mr Choong place and see what wrong and get his advise as he is the expert on Sierra Glow. Maybe it can be ratify on the spot and then no more headache unless you have DIY something else......

I use clay bar and ipo(pure alcohol) to get rid of water mark. It works but very time consuming. U nid to wash car, clay bar, wipe clean and then wipe with alchohol...easily 3hours.

I wash frequently and yet water mark still unavoidable. I do found out that after clay bar treatment, paint surface is more sticky and tend to get dirty faster

The only way to reduce watermarks is so keep your car dry at all times. As rain water is acidic, it will rapidly etch into the surface if it is not wiped off. It also contains mineral deposits that trap itself into the paint in those microscopic pits, which is why you see marks on your paintwork.

The only way is preventive maintenance, or a polish to remove it. Given that we live in a country with lots of smog, pollution and constant rain watermarks are highly inevitable.

After applied SG, we r advice not to polish or wax our car. This will remove SG coat. The only way to maintain the car is to use clay bar. But u don have to do it every time after car wash. Maybe once a month depending on your available free time. As for using of alchohol, it is recommended to do it as often as possible. So, its up to individual to decide the frequency of claybar washing and alchohol usage. For me, I noticed that after clay bar, car paint is more shining and looks like showroom condition. Downside is, it attracts dirts very fast.....

Did you get the PG claybar? Did you use it with water only with claying? I got a hard time 'wetting' the car panels as the water drips down very fast.

Ive used SG for 6 months now. The shine seems to be a bit less than before. Paint surface is also not smooth anymore as compared to when u do a new coat of polish. I clay bar the car about once a month. Is this normal? Any of you experiencing the same?

After 8 months my red roc is still shiny as hell. Yes there are watermarks but alcohol wipes make them go away pretty easily. I find that a quick rinse daily keeps the car very clean but u really need to have that kind of dedication.

My silver forte which is 2.5 years also still looks smashing! Just need to touch up the boot area coz its exposed to rain and shine everyday (boot part is not covered by porch) so the beading of water isn't there anymore.

Exactly. But realise that on the surface level, the etching is physically on the coat - no matter how much you clean the watermarks, eventually it will come back. Same like dirt in a hairline scratch. There's nothing you can do to level the etching unless a light polish is done.

If you are wondering how good SGlow is...he offers lifetime warranty last time, when he just started..that how it is.... still remember i called him 3 years ago...and he is honest, and trustworthy guy, he told me over the phone- no need to maintain, just wash consistently -no need to buy anything extra from him, no need special care..no need..no need...and emphasized preferably you clay from time to time...thats all..i recommended a fren - after 3 years - he said no complain - still there!! probably not as 'thick' when just done, but still good enough - recommended countless of frens over the years, but myself never did it...reason: my paint quality too bad - he wont accept my car!! shit....

Yes, they recommend washing using the 2 bucket method, especially within 24hours if there's stuff like bird droppings, and need to visit once a year for inspection, which is not too bad (http://sierraglow.com/after.htm). Nothing about claying, unless you mean I will still need to do that myself, which I guess I probably will not. ONR looks interesting, I'll take that into consideration. Where can I purchase bottles of ONR? Still leaning towards glowing the car though, as the hydrophobic layer is supposed to last about 1 year, and shine for 5 years >.< I'll wager it's an exageration, so I'm still looking for long term user reviews.

sounds like high-maintenance.
