What you use to clean? UQD usually quite aggressive and won't leave any stains (assuming they fallout didn't got chance to bake in few days + sun)
Only drawback is that it does take out a wee bit of your existing LSP while laying down its own sacrificial layer LSP

Finally done after a week.
I also lazy do third layer Meguiar ULW as it's streaking and I'm running out of time, so only done that 3rd layer on front and rear bonnet surface.

Tires with Meguiar endurance tire gel, exhaust tip polished with Sonax aluminum/chrome polish, end up 2 tone cuz I can't reach inside😂

Head and tail lamps given some sun screen Meguiar headlight protectant.

I actually had to second guess thought I went through water puddle and dirty the door
Went closer... Oh road reflection😂



And of course, it rained on the day itself and a detailer's pride is always the results, even in rain!

After that downpour and reached home

ULW and DodoJuice waxes (yes ULW more on being a synthetic sealant despite the product name lol) prioritizes on beading so sheeting is very weak compared to Sonax BSD topped/Sonax Profiline Hard wax


And that's it for the year, thanks for watching and hope you enjoy the mirrors and water beads! notworthy.gif

layer both or half/hlaf panel?  biggrin.gif

Test 50-50 first. Thorough clean, then clay with Osren cloth, then IPA wipedown and finish each half with S&S and the 303.

Not sure why but over the long downpour on Sat night, saw the beads not 'so tight' as envisioned, on both sides. Haha. Maybe due to the layer of dust particles that settled over the paintwork during the hot spell prior to the rain. hmm.gif

Will continue to monitor.

I'm really liking the ULW and HCW combo! Durability should be a breeze with products these days, easily half a year to a year until your next project

For shame my ULW and blue velvet are no longer playing nice... Then again 7 ish years on ULW and 6 years on the blue velvet, I'm grateful they don't really "expire"and still usable. Probably due to the products' age the oils and chemicals are kinda counteracting each other.

ive seen bro houseofowner irl when he donated some ultimate polish and compound, superb stuff right there. doing it right the first time and applying it right makes things long lasting and less hassle in the long run it seems. cant even see swirls on his car lol and thats like he said been running for 3 years? not bad interior and exterior

Agreed, I started on Meguiar twins (UC + UP) as well until I moved on to Meguiar M101 + Sonax Profiline perfect finish XD

I wouldn't say the products are better(as in you buy them and auto win), mainly saves time and ultimately it's up to the detailer.

Like a pen or paint brush and an artist, you can get better tools, however in the end it's how the artists paint it nod.gif

bro, this time you guessing wrong, as mentioned in the video, it was raining. I didn't do ULW combo, it was purely HCW only. If i used ULW, it going to waste.

For the combo, you really to check out the earlier post#12983, post#12986 is purely HCW as i replied bro christ14 to avoid misleading to others.

Meguiar products didn't expire one as per my knowledge. I still keep tar remover, ultimate paste wax for several years, it still can be used. This is another factor i love their products.

Cheapest, easier to maintain, very durable, gloss to the max, at this price to performance ratio, it is awesome. brows.gif

Oh sorry since the YouTube titled ULW in post #12983 notworthy.gif

Yeah my currently still using oldest Meguiar is probably my gold class wash and ultimate liquid wax. The gold class wash plastic container was disintegrated, cracked and leaking. Has to transfer to another container lol.

There's an older gold class rich leather cleaner and conditioner I used to clean my headphones leather ear pads/previous car leather steering. that one was maybe 10 years or something until I had to throw it away as it really expired no longer creamy and one left a watery oily mess. Doesn't really clean anymore and seems to eat through the leather surface (color transfer, and flaking. Lucky one a very small spot so no issue)

I do agree on the rest as a huge portion of my products are from Meguiar and I kinda started with them ( and turtle wax lol) after all.

Looking forward to it! As I never used M105 and M205 myself, only M101 matched with ultimate polish and after finished proceed to Sonax perfect finish.
Supposedly, M101 and M105 are very identical with some minor differences

I have used both before, and personally I would say M101 is easier to work with than M105. However, M105 cut is easier to finish with M205. M101, being abit coarser than M105, leaves abit heavier machine-induced defects.
