    Re: Second Coat Of Wax (or not): A Test

    Subscribe, I don`t do a second coat most of the time becasue I am lazy. But I do use Meg`s D156 as a drying aid most of the time and thats like a little booster shot every other week. My trucks so darn big the idea of waxing it twice (heck even once sometimes) makes me fell like

    rlmccarty2000- Yeah, I bet a lot of us learned spit-shining from vets, though my influences were from the Greatest Generation. Heh heh, Kiwi + Concoran boots is one of those combos like [fave car] + [fave wax].

    I`ve never had Kiwi cloud up, even when there were [unbelievale number] layers..but I wasn`t using *cold* water or a cotton ball either.

    OK, back to Detailing...I`ve used various stuff for the "spit", sorta partial to Griot`s SpeedShine, but it`s gotta be used *sparyingly*. My "pseudo-spit-shine" approach with M16 via Cyclo + SpeedShine gave me the most spherical beading I`ve ever had with that LSP and made the A8 look great, but !oh man! is it a PIA when it goes haywire (and I`m the guy who thinks all LSPs are easy).

    mjgraniero- You gonna spit-shine that Souveran layering?

    trashmanssd- That "the truck is so big.." thing is probably why I switched the Yukon XLD over to FK1000P. Getting several coats of Collinite (or KSG x 6 ) on the dog-haulers got old.

    As promised, some initial bead shots. Actually, 4-day-later bead shots.



    Admittedly, this is a better exposed photograph than the one above, but.. do you notice better beading on 2 coats of 476?



    Natty`s






    2-coats of Natty`s *seemed* to sheet better than 1 coat. Here`s a picture where I tried to capture it, but failed, but it DOES show how pretty Natty`s Blue looks.





    On the motorcycle saddle bags, I have nothing really to report other than to say Pete`s 53 is beading really well (as it should only 4 days in).

    Re: Second Coat Of Wax (or not): A Test

    After 4 days there should be no degradation of the LSP. If there is any change the "top coat" would have to wear away to the "base coat". The side with one coat would be gone. Am I making any sense? I still say the solvents that keep the wax pliable would remove the first coat. That`s my story and I`m sticking to it. Lol

    Re: Second Coat Of Wax (or not): A Test

    Its probably more like a partial removal of the first base layer with most LSPs. You end up with a slightly thicker layer that`s more uniform with more complete coverage after the 2nd layer. Menz PL is a LSP that I always thought was layerable as well as the DG and Zaino sealants. Most of the acrylic based sealants are layerable too. (Werkstat and CG ones)

    If a second layer looks different than just having one layer then there has to be something happening. The medium that the light is traveling through has changed affecting the angles of refraction and total reflection. Since the second layer is the same LSP then we can assume what has changed is the thickness.
