    Your HG Paste looks so liquidy. When did it start getting so wet looking?

    Edit: It`s kinda the consistency of lumpy Jello, wobbles about when moved/poked.
    So did you still apply it to the door jambs? I literally did the same last week but my bottle is still good. But trying to use it wherever possible, expecting it to jelly up by winter time. Too bad my neighbors all suck.

    I had another good bottle (The Neighbor Bottle) that I used on the door jambs.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Since I don`t have kids, I ordered up a cordless Finisher for Fathers Day. No way to justify it..... a what the heck moment! I`ll think of my father and the cars of his I polished over the years. I`m looking at one of his favorites on my bulletin board now. I ordered chrome wheels for it and this was the day he had them mounted with new tires. He lived in Michigan, 13 hours from me so I`d only see him twice a year and we`d do a "fix" of some sort on his Benz.

    I cannot find the photo of him standing next to it on my computer..... here`s a winter picture with him in it going for what would be one of his last rides in it.

    Sprayed down with BH autofoam and washed wheels then ran through the spray and pray. Spot cleaned with N-914.

    Cleaned and coated tires with McKee’s tire coating

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    I finished up a detail of Infinity QX60 - I had done the interior already (for Mom) and today I returned for the polishing (for Dad). There were some school/team magnets that had `glued` themselves to the surface. I was able to remove those with 3M Adhesive Remover and plastic razor blades. I polished with Rupes yellow medium wool and Rupes Keramik combo, and was blown away at how quickly I could remove swirls without a compound. I was even able to remove hazing on the headlights! Thanks to Jason Rose for talking me into trying this at MTE.

    Polished my friends blue hulled boat while standing in the water with my new "Finisher".... we left our phones at the cabin so no photographic proof!

    8225D528-1063-44AE-B330-97399F995FD1.jpegFor 50+ years I’ve detailed my Godmothers car. It’s been a year and the car wash scratches were in need of a polishing out. The “Finisher” with a yellow Uro-Tec pad & Meguiar Ultimate Compound found at a local store took care of those..... yes, my Beast, would have been much faster but the minivan was quite full for the two week road trip.
    Zaino AIO with a Z5 topper finished off the event. Kudos to my new Scangrip multi light!

    I washed 3 of our 4 cars yesterday and for 2 of them I just washed, dried and put away. No Overcoat, no PA Cosmic, no High Gloss...nuthin`.

    The first step towards beating your addiction is admitting you have a problem; only then can you take steps to address it.

    I’ve come to believe myself that topping a coating isn’t helping protection.

    If my coating is clogged up and i top with OC or cosmic it improves somewhat. Wash with Mckee’s coating prep and boom! Near new performance.

    If performance your only need don’t bother topping. I like the prettyness it adds

    It`s certainly a topic that has no universal answer, eh?

    I `think` that toppers/maint products provide some `bling` and any extra protection may be a by-product of that. Lotsa topcoats have things in `em that enhance the visual experience gloss in dry weather, water behavior in rain, maybe slickness.

    Perhaps maint products do that to a lesser degree. Mohs and CSL are kinda boring to me both visually and in the wet but put some Cosmic or similar on them and the appearance will change and they generally stay a bit cleaner after rain.

    These days I kinda look at it like using a foam cannon:

    1. It can`t hurt.
    2. It`s sensationally entertaining to me.

    Well, it can kinda hurt the `ol wallet so it`s not totally without its downside
