    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1425712415.780040.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1425712432.220345.jpgFinished my black car and used two things for the first time. The rupes 75 and a few rupes pads. I love this little da as a complement my rupes 15 - it made the front end so much easier. But I also really like these rupes pads especially the blue and green.

    FINALLY got warm enough to wash away 4 weeks of salt/dirt/grit/filth!! WOW. XTERRA took a beating will all these storms. Not perfect but clean. Did the interior too. Finished with prima wax as u dry. Still amazed with the pop and protection this product provides. Looks like you spent the afternoon hand waxing.

    I usually do not wash during the week, but 50 in PA today and calling for rain all weekend. So spent the morning with the xterra. Just a good wash. Touched up the nerf bar brackets with black spray paint. Thanks to the abrading from the winter road shale. Tires got eco touch tire dressing. Wells got MEGS HD. (Thats the last of it. Got to order more). All in all from taking a sever beating this winter really not in bad shape. Did not notice any damage. Thank god.

    Ordered some new microfibers; borderless blonds, eagle edgeless, and a few dry me a river (Jr)’s.

    Detailed my Jeep SRT8 last night and finished OP removal on another panel (more than 50% done with OP removal). Winter has destroyed the Klasse... I put 5 coats of SG and after 1 month of daily winter driving water no longer beads off the rear hatch and rocker panels (the rest is beading great)

    did you prep it first before applying the ksg?

    Normally with that much, you should have had to use a grinding wheel to get it off

    Washed my dd last night with my daughter. Foamed then 2BM with PB SSS, used ONR as a drying aid and finished up with PB WGC on the windows. All I can say is THANK YOU Poorboy`s for finally making windows easy! Plus my windows feel super slick. It was my first time using WGC but I already plan on buying a gallon.

    Very interesting! Please tell me more about PB glass cleaner - is it really that much different then a Stoners glass cleaner type product? And your windows are slick like they`ve got sealant on them? TIA! I know Ron likes PB Glass Cleaner a lot.

    I think it cleans better than Stoners and comes out a little clearer and yeah it feels super slick like its got some protection. I used a glass towel to spread and a short nap MF to buff and didn`t have to go back over anything. I had a bunch of dog wet nose marks all over my windows too. I have another job tomorrow so I am looking forward to using it again. I bought the 32oz so it should last awhile but I really think the gallon would be worth it.

    Yes, the first layer of SG on I prepared with AIO first.

    First coat of SG: washed->clayed->m101->quick detail/waterless wash->AIO->SG
    additional layers of SG: wash -> quick detail/waterless wash -> SG (WOWO)
