    Re: Name the products that you buy again and again, and why

    I don`t buy too many products repeatedly because I don`t go through them very fast and I`m attempting to try as many brands as possible in order to improve my knowledge base. However there are some exceptions because I`ve found some I simply don`t care to continue shopping around, or like so much I`m no longer tempted.

    To build on the Poorboys praise: Bug Squash, AIO, Super Slick with Suds.
    Griots: Wheel Cleaner
    Optimum: Optimum Car Wash
    Lake Country: Thin Pro and Flat pads

    Re: Name the products that you buy again and again, and why

    OK, since a lot of respondents are posting things they WOULD buy again (in addition to what they HAVE bought again), I`ll add these:

    Menzerna 2500 (this should have been on my original posting as I`m on my third bottle)
    Menzerna 400 (if I had any hard correcting to do)
    LC Hydrotech Tangerine & Cyan pads
    Poorboy`s Bold-n-Brite
    Poorboy`s Bug Squash
    Prooboy`s Liquid Natty`s Blue (best liquid wax!)
    Polish Angel Presto (the best spray wax/QD hybrid I`ve ever used)

    As much as I liked what Gearhead wrote, I think the key is to be a certified wax waster. And from experience, seems it has to be PASTE wax. (Cuz I haven`t wax wasted much of the pastes)

    I`m running low on Liquid Natty`s Blue (love that stuff...well, love ALL Poorboy`s stuff I`ve used). I`ll likely have to add a 16oz of Liquid Red, too, though.

    Ummm. Hard to buy stuff again and again when I already bought gallons of:

    Poorboy`s
    Spray and Wipe......... Good cleaner for various uses, like 512 had mentioned.
    QD+.................... was the only product that worked (of 4-5 I tried) on some fresh but stubborn water spots. From a 4oz sample, I bought the gallon cuz of that.
    Strawberry Scent Air Freshener ..... Tried a 16oz bottle. Scent was Heavenly to me, so got the gallon!!

    32oz bottles of
    Spray and Gloss, Bug Squash, Polish w/ EXP

    4-5 of their clay kits (best smelling clay lube ever!)

    Non Poorboy`s stuff I`d likely buy again:

    ONR - regular version. Have bought several 32oz bottles as I use em for cheap clay lube, lots of rinseless washing. So I go through them a bit.

    Nanoskin 6" Fine cuz I`ve worn one out (seems like it) and already replaced it. These work well for me for some jobs.

    3M Precision Tape. Best I`ve tried so far.


    AND...I`m still crossing my fingers that Poorboy`s some day comes out with a rinseless wash solution! Pink with a strawberry scent

    What kinda longevity you get outta that, daily driver situation. Picked some up, so far used it once and liked it but no long term info.

    Usually use TuffShine but that gets to be a pretty arduous process in winter.

    I thought the magic was blue? Anyway all the magic is in the spray and gloss. I use it over boring stuff and it looks amazing. Best looks QD out there. A bottle lasts forever too.

    Depends on weather. During weeks with lots of rain I`m getting close to 4 weeks. During the dry times I get around 5weeks.

    Funny you mention this. I just decided to give this another go and change it up from the usual Perl on my dad`s tires. With no rain and daily driving I usually see about 6 weeks before it needs a fresh coat. His tires don`t take a tire coating very well but Perl, Gyeon Tire and anything else works fine and that is why I went back to them. I still think Perl looks better but does not last as long as Gyeon Tire.

    Don`t have Gyeon Tire, but use PERL at 1:1 on tires (2 coats) to make them last about 3-4 weeks here. Weather has been very iffy last month or so.

    I guess I`ll see how it holds up. I like TuffShine for sure but the initial cleaning can take many spray/scrub/rinse cycles which is kinda impractical in the winter.

    Stuff lasts forever, though, more so on certain brands of tires; really seems to like Michelins for some reason. I`ll generally apply it twice or 3 times a year after a light, quick scrub.

    First time I used the Gyeon a few weeks ago, it didn`t ?dry? very quick; gave it a bit of a light wipedown about 30 minutes later and was good to go. Is that normal or did I do something wrong/dumb?

    I guess it depends on the weather. I would say you did fine.

    This past weekend I let it sit for 20 minutes and then lightly wiped. Seems to be fine. Touched up the areas that looked to have absorbed more product.
