hahaha, not that case. It was not until i drop by osren last week that Henry shine the lights onto the car that i notice it.
I expected some, but that many. drives me crazy.
Yup, 15 litres is my usual. Will look into the drying part. My current practice is to wet the microfiber tower, mist ONR as drying aid (QD mix) , spread and pull. second wipe down with dry microfiber tower to make sure it's 100% dry. Any dirt or spot will spray more onr and wipe.

Learn to dry with water...laugh.gif...then there's "almost" no need to wipe.

Been using Osren's bubble wash for a week now...washing every two days

Nice smell aside...not sure if it is doing it for me...looks like its leaving behind a thin grey film on my wax...needs a QD follow up...

Sifus...pls recommend a sealant.

Looking for one that does not attract too much dust, water spots, road grime and road film...makes washing easier...beading and visuals not that important. smile.gif Tq.

You are claiming from the company right? Get a few proper quotes from the painters lah...at least black easier to match. ...negotiate privately to paint the whole car see how much...

I would go make a police report also for protection in case they don't pay to go for small claims court...

Last week couldn't resist and bought this...Attached Image

Strangest LSP I've ever used...looks and smells like hand cream...as it bonds with the paint...the emulsion breaks down and water is released...eventually soaking the pad...need to periodically squeeze the pad dry!!!

When fresh... beads like wax...sheets like most polymer...adds some gloss...very grippy not slick or smooth at all...will see how long it will last and how easy it is to clean...so far is looking good...could be a sleeper...alternative to PNS?

Further thoughts on the armorall extreme shield wax...

It's quite expensive...working out to RM 14.5 per car ...in contrast ag's hd wax say at RM 400 per tub is only about RM 8 per car... I don't know if it is going to last twice as long to make it equitable...

both look good. Did you do any BSD over ICE? that would be interesting.

When you're done with the test. Can you do a QD or IPA wipe to see which side attracted/embedded more dirt... Thanks.

No I didn't, both ICE and BSD applied directly to the bare paint surface.
I have another car coated with the Sonax Polymer Netshield for the past 2 months. I will share the water beading picture next week for the forum to judge its durability.
*
Well...these 3 are modern synthetics so should last quite a bit...they have great reputation for beading/durability anyway...

I tested an old wax rain hop vs extreme shield...durability and beading aside the wax attracted more dirt and is less easy to clean...so that was defining

The extreme shield is also tacky/grippy like BSD/PNS...I'm guessing it has comparable formulation and it's my plan to extend it with BSD

if you wish I can give you some extreme shield to test with PNS...

Tried the nano mist sh*t, but all it does was to mask the smell.
Get in the car today morning, and the smell returns, haha

Since it's such a problem...I'd remove the fabric / cushion for washing, it's easy enough...carpet will be more difficult...

bad luck strikes me, my boots filled with rotten smell.

Did you spill something to cause the smell?

If not, check for dead cicak... If smell persist for few days...& like coming from the vent/air-con...most likely dead at the air-con coil.

hi, do i nid to clean the old wax by using paint cleaner before apply a new wax?

You mean meguiars paint cleaner?

If you use AIO type wax then no; if sealant type then yes.

Claying not that effective in cleaning road films, and I prefer not to load the Clay unnecessary for longer life.

Just got myself a MJJC foam lance.

Quick question.. rinse before you foam or straight foam without rinse

My findings over the internet have so many different answers and thoughts

Logically, jet first then foam... Less dirt...less work for the foam...

best is

1. foam
2. rinse with PW
3. foam
4. wash with 2BM
5. rinse with PW
6. flood rinse with open hose ( check below photo)
7. wipe/tap dry + drying aid

flood rinse :

So...don't jet it down to reduce high pressure & velocity water from using the dirt to cause damage...i can buy that... thumbup.gif

Obviously I don't use water jet... smile.gif
