    Quick question...ok 2

    So, reading and watching videos. Especially the “test area”. They apply the polish and wipe it off immediately....

    Back in the day I think the theory with zaino was let it bake in the sun for abit. Longer the better. Neither here nor there at this point

    Well, other than is it ok to apply if the sun is up?

    My black light says to let sit for Atleast 15 mins... so wouldn’t just apply and rub off?

    My quicky I let sit .. longer they sit.. deeper shine??

    Thanks guys.

    phatkid77- Short answer is that different stuff can call for different techniques.

    GENERALLY...if something says to "leave it sit" then that`s the best idea. I often let stuff sit for a long time before buffing it off, but never my polishes (just LSPs).

    When you say "polish", I don`t think of Z2/5/whatever, I think of an *abrasive* polish. You don`t wipe those off until they`re either about to dry out or they`ve done their job (namely abrading away marring). Don`t let those sit, let alone bake, or you`ll probably regret it!

    [INSERT usual rant about how using words like "polish" weirdly causes confusion..]

    Some stuff is apparently sun-friendly, but I myself have never used anything that is.

    Well. I can tell you... my “polish” selections won’t be overly abrasive!

    Apparently black light has light abrasive in there..
    this site has me looking at a few different things.
    Like v38
    Griots complete polish or correcting creme
    Ect

    But pretty sure this bottle will last a LONG time unless I use the PC on both vehicles twice a week lol.

    Not sure where blacklight would fit on this wicked chart found here


    Side note... accumulator... i see we message each other back in 2009. Haha

    Ah, OK...I`d follow the directions on that one.

    Yeah, my stuff lasts me forever.

    Maybe it`s just different from that other stuff. I always thought of BL (which I`ve never used) as what I`d call a "glaze".

    Gee, I didn`t notice/remember that! No [darn] it, I`m not getting old!

    Skip the CG polishes. Go with pretty much any other brand and you will be happier.
