    finally confirmed my first non Mopar customer in what seems like a while (tomorrow)

    too bad its not a smaller vehicle so I could use the Fuzion paste, definitely don`t feel like upgrading a SUV to a paste wax

    i might have snuck in a quick wipedown and paste wax job on lunch and then opened the garage, for some sun

    just everything above the crease line on the side panels











    gonna let it sit until after work then full 6pm sun display (might do the lower sides too but probably not)

    How do you guys get those looking so smooth and reflective? Don`t you run into orange peel?

    Truck dropped off for some Infinity Wax, Kamikaze Miyabi done about a month or 2 ago. Look in cabinet while grabbing Infinity, see 1/2 bottle of ISM leftover from Vette 2 weeks ago...the wheels start turning.

    Too long since Miyabi? Will ISM bond to cured Miyabi? Late Friday afternoon but take a shot and e-mail Esoteric, probably as they`re walking out the door. 5 minutes later response comes back...good to go. Gyeon Foam, Gyeon Bathe, Gyeon Prep...start applying the ISM. Nice! Guess I`ll do the Infinity tomorrow.


    No linting issues tonite, maybe my towel discipline had been slipping causing previous linting issues...dumped all my `paint appropriate` earlier this week, got some new ones. Maybe that was it? New towels nice regardless.

    Eagle Edgeless, some PBMG edgeless...trying some new kinds too.

    Last two coatings I did I was getting some incredible linting no matter which towels I used, so I pitched all my `paint touching towels. Dunno if actual linting or dust clinging to towels...environmental issues, lax towel washing, drying, storage habits...dunno for sure but didn`t experience it yesterday. Thankfully.

    Yup, Eagles.
    Tried some Crazy Ones, had to wash a few times, till less lint.



    Now spray wax only for the softness.

    Already got it for this car; touched up some chips before doing all the coating. Not sure the touch up will hold on top of all the coatings...guess I could try.
