i didn't get it. i just used some DAWN liquid detergent (strips off old wax), towel dried, and applied the FF.Originally posted by chromaplast:
hey, 1 question
did you get finish prep? I already have the maguair cleaner, and polish so I'll use that instead. before I apply finish first.
what's your suggestion?
I've used Klasse All In One Cleaner/Protectant...the stuff sure seems like it works. Cleans out the dirt still in the paint and the water beads up and is nice and shiny. Should I switch?Originally posted by NeMesIS:
Stephen is definitely right guys
i have detailed cars for 5 years....
i hear it's good stuff, but jeesoous...talk about a lot of work. dawn, clay, z1, z2 overnight...ugh. finish first gave me an *incredible* shine that a towel will literally slide off of. just seems easier with equivalent results.Originally posted by Stephen:
Nope, its one of those polymer deals. It sounds like complete BS when you read about it, but trust me Sal is being humble when he describes how great the product really is.
First you wash with Dawn, then you clay the surface.
Then you apply the Z1 Polish Lock, and then the first coat of Z2 right on top of it. Let the Z2 sit overnight, then just go nuts with as many coats as you want. Its great stuff, my car has three coats in that picture I posted, notice how well it shined up the wheels also.
