    Probs the Ceramic. Try the old school speed shine. Still one of the best QDís around.

    I agree!
    Seems like there`s some narrower use cases where a QD may be helpful, but we have so many awesome rinseless/waterless products now.

    I was out of the loop for about 5 years, tried to get caught back up, got a bunch of new rinseless/waterless products, then realized "wait, I don`t have any QD`s like I used to back in the day. But... they are basically worthless to me now".

    OP-
    You got some really good feedback above, and most of it I`ll echo.

    DG Rinseless w/ Aquawax- versatile. mix it more diluted than the suggested ratio for an easy working product. Seems like really good protection for what it is.
    Ultima Waterless- smells great, just works.
    Wolfgang Uber- really slick. Some small protection, IMO. Less than DG or UWW (I think...) Probably more QD-like.

    Is it also OK *under* the FK...as in "won`t mess with adding more FK1000P later"?

    Thank you for all this great information. OCW is readily available in Canada so to try and answer Accumulator`s question I am going to buy a bottle and apply it to half of the hood over the existing FK1000P and apply FK425 on the other half.

    I will wait for 3 or 4 days and then apply a coat of FK1000P over the entire hood and see if there is any difference. Not very scientific but should tell the story.

    I will post the results.

    No issues with adding more FK in the spring or fall.

    Since I’ve been doing Rinseless Washes, the old Speed Shine just sits there unused. It’s just OK over the FK, nothing special. UWW works much better for me. Slicker and cleans better with less effort.

    Older- Though I used *many* gallons of SpeedShine in the past, I ended up giving away my last gallon of it as I just prefer all my other QDs/RWs.

    Re: Alternatives to FK425

    I havenít found a waterless, even Ech20, that could match the gloss of speedshine. Just got to many QDís that iíve tried that i now jave to use up but will probably circle back around.

    There are no issues adding FK1000P over OCW. Both sides of the hood look and feel the same, slick with deep shine.

    Now it`s *my* turn to thank *you* for the good info The FK1000P sure isn`t finicky about what it`s applied over top of!
