Had to Google water sheeting method. Looks interesting in terms of how it gets rid of most of the excess water on the paintwork.

If without access to a hose, will a pail of water being splashed over the area give a similar impact? biggrin.gif

Yes, the idea is either natural flow from hose or pail of water splash. Thats why many car wash shops splash water at the end of their rinse, its not to give car final rinse but to sheet water off so that easier to dry.

Interesting. Rarely send my cars for wash outside unless absolutely required.

Most times I DIY on weekends & carry a basket of car care products in my boot especially if come across tree saps/bird droppings/coloured water etc...

Will stop using the squeegee from now onwards...

Paiseh.

For clay lube, tap water is fine as long as got some filter. If u living in landed house and have that torpedo looking water filter outside then more than enough. If in condo then maybe your own drinking water is also good enough. Not necessary to use distilled water for clay lube, save it for maybe diluting IPA or something else.

I think claybar somewhat more efficient at picking up contaminants than claycloth. No idea about clayfoam.

Osren quoted me RM48 for 150g claybar and RM85 claycloth. Is the price okay? I think claybar is reasonable but not sure about claycloth. Thanks!

Hopefully this last longer than The Bead Maker

I saw SGCB selling their clay cloth at RM9x. So I suppose Osren is quite ok. I saw Shopee / Lazada selling generic claycloth for much cheaper, but dont feel like risking or testing it so I just bite the bullet and gotten Osren's. Plus at least claycloth you can kinda use for long time so still ok for me.

Yeah, I asked Osren HQ before, understand those are kinda like reseller and not branch, so their pricing might be marked up due to delivery charges, etc if I remember correctly.

I think If you feel the distributor price is unreasonable, maybe you can highlight this to Osren HQ. But hearing what you say now, instead of buying from distributor, I would probably just buy from Osren HQ and pay for delivery charges to have it delivered to my state.

175 ringgit from Amazon? Does the 175 ringgit include shipping and deposit? How long does it take to reach Malaysia and sent to your address?

Although kinda wrong thread because here discuss more about beautifying and maintaining cars, but as far as I know there is no restriction or limitation on who can buy an electric vehicle. I have known all sorts of ppl buying electric vehicles and there is no confinement of any form. Unless I am reading your question wrongly, then this is all I know.
