Haha battle scars from Sepang ah or touge? brows.gif

I can still see some 'lines' on my rear windscreen. That day I only clayed and IPA the whole front glass area to remove that oil patch.

I was thinking to use Glass Refresh but my screen ain't watermarked though so I kept it in the end.

Now it's raining cats & dogs every single evening so I just leave it as is first until the weekend when I have some time to do some TLC.

anyone here used/uses the graphene flex wax?

yes used on my avita for 1 months now..
still beading water. plus i like it cos so easy to apply . spray and wipe on with no force needed and only need to layer the liquid thin on the paint surface. . thumbsup.gif

yesterday i did a lite reapply on half my bonnet just to see in the coming days the water b performance.

this is much better than meguire ceramic wax in terms on surface smoothness .. my previous .

Hi bro & sis out there, I am a freelance detailer before and I have quite some used/new stuff to let go cheap and free. For example I have a bottle of Optimum ONRW (almost 85% leff), brand new GTECHNIQ EXO v3 coating, brand new Gyeon Prime coating, used Flex 3401 with assorted pad, repack of Meguiars Hyper Dressing, All Purpose Cleaner and etc.

Some let go cheap and some free, if you guys interested please add me whatsapp 012-9202821 and I will send you photo for those you interested and give you price.

Happy Detailing and Cheers!

Hope weather is kind this weekend.

Rain all week and my 1 week old Glaco coat needs to be removed and applied again to ensure even better effect on the windscreen. So far it does bead reasonably well but without a wash in 3-4 days can see the coat starts to deteriorate.

Haven't even done any detailing to the roof areas too. tongue.gif

Haha you spotted it. Used to do that for all my cars. At least try my best to ensure 'space' given to the next lot so they don't end up opening their doors willy nilly and end up dinging my paint ranting.gif

Kinda bummer when I'm shorter than the roof line laugh.gif - especially the wife's CX5. I almost always ignore the roof and just wash the rest. laugh.gif

Your ride is the GT86?

But if you paranoid, there's a saying: leave space? People can slot in trolleys/baby strollers and then DING!

My wife cannot la, I'll need to get stool to properly wash the roof also lol, very tiring to stretch also cry.gif

I also had this recently after raining. The stain water trap inside door handles and side mirror.. but subsequent rain, the stain didnt appear anymore. U better clean it quickly before it gets harder to remove
