    Re: Could this be TURTLE WAX??!!

    Drying aids make the water change behavior and SNS does this. There is some lube too itís another liquid

    There is no official anything to go by just try it for the 6-10 bucks and see how you like it.

Thatís why I use a Merlinís mix as I get lubricity I need from the waterless and protection the sio2 sealant.

    If I were to use one I would use the QD as it has more lubricity bought at the price their offered at Iíd give a 50/50 mix of both a try

    I feel that I properly dry the car only when Iím using a spray along with my drying towel. I just donít want to use my expensive sonax detailer spray every time I dry the car

    That kind of savings is one reason why I like that my IUDJ works about as well as my QDs (not that I`m likely to use up all the latter ).

    FWIW, the presumably minimal cleaning ability/lubricity of OCW (not sure about UQW/D156 as I don`t like it on paint) is sufficient to avoid marring from *minimal* residual dirt, at least IME doing it the way I do. But no, it`s NOT in the same league as a RW/QD though, and yeah..those mixes do sound like a good way to go.

    I feel that I properly dry the car only when I’m using a spray along with my drying towel.
    I`ve come to feel the same way, if only because my Drying Aids do leave a little something behind, and over time both my wife and I have noticed that cars dried that way look a little bit better. Eh, note that I like to stretch my LSPing intervals, so such a diff might not be applicable to more Autopian types who LSP more often.

    Re: Could this be TURTLE WAX??!!

    Update:

    Been almost five weeks now since applying tw-Sns on the Buick. It was asked how it compared to fusso coat. From the beginning tw doesn`t have the crazy water behavior that fusso does. Now this is the ymmv. Here where I live now, fusso was dying ad about week four. This wasn`t the case at other places I`ve lived. Yesterday was a big downpour here. The beading on the Buick with tw, looks the same as it did in the beginning. The car has made three 1,200 mile round trips to the dr`s. Been in near 100 degree temps. Been in temps as low as the 40`s. Rain, driven in rain, hail, pretty much everything but snow. Bugs washed off fairly easy after a few days of baking. They weren`t as easy as fusso was to clean. It doesn`t self clean as well as the CMX did. For me, and where I currently live, this is a winner. One layer no topping with anything including a quick detailer.

    Now I want to see just how long it does last. This is doing much better that any other sealant I`ve tried here at this house. This is my go to now till I get around to a coating for it.

    This is what rain looks like half the time here. Small hail mixed with the rain. It`s crazy here.




    And still falling.

    Got some yesterday. I donít know if this was due to weather- but it was extremely hot and humid outside when I sprayed some on the car. Needless to say it streaked and was grabby. Car was freshly washed.

    Could very well have been the temp/humidity. Get some ICE Spray Detailer and wipe the car down with that. That cured the streaking on my black Camaro.

    I had same problems. Removal was not grabby for me though. Was like trying to remove oil from paint stuffs not the greatest to apply. CP Reset wash did trick for me. Try washing it. Stuff pretty good after that.

    I wonder what instances it is grabby in, for me, its like any other QD, I haven`t had issue with coated vs non, using wet or dry. CMX is very grabby in comparison and almost as much of a hassle as a regular wax.

    Update on the TW S&S. two and a half months later. It rained a bit yesterday. The roof and hood of the Buick has lost most of its water beading behavior. The sides still looked good though. I`m still impressed. This last twice as long as othe sealants I`ve tried here.

    Seems to show for me the sun sun is the killer for my lsp`s.

    This stuff is good but man is it a pain to work with on single stage. I just washed the car. Applied this product on a freshly washed and dried surface. It streaked like a mother f***** so I got pissed and just used a different product.

    Huh, was that *modern* ss? Older-tech ss can really "soak up" product, often unevenly, but I`d always expected recent versions to be better.

    Put this on my son`s car about a week ago. Very impressive, particularly for a $10 product. No idea of longevity, of course, but it looks and feels great.
