I just ordered 3D bead it up. I’ve heard it was great. I’m going to paint correct it tomorrow and I’ll apply that after

Samer, just polishing your car in one day is quite a feat but to also give her a coat of ceramic the same day is hard to imagine. It took me almost a week to do the same with my Sarah. <smile> Granted, she gets my A game while the other two vehicles that get the B game only require about three days.

So good to see some love for Paint Gloss!

While it doesn't really offer much in the way of protection, which is probably a good thing if used as a drying aid, it's so easy and forgiving to use. Smells amazing too, very addictive. Unlike Bead Maker, you can use as much or as little Paint Gloss as you like, and as often as you like. And unlike Dream Maker, Paint Gloss doesn't act like a petulant child by smearing and ghosting.

You can use Paint Gloss as an interior detailer as well, leaving a gorgeous scent behind afterwards. I also use it as an anti-static agent when vacuuming carpet that is laced with pet hair and sand, just mist it onto the carpet and begin vacuuming, works surprisingly well.

I also bought some paint gloss and like it. The thing that bugs me more then anything is things like finger prints, paint gloss is great and removing things like that even on glass.

With black, a product that creates slickness would help limit marring in the long term. As much as I like Gyeon Pure EVO, it's not the slickest coating on the market.

Staying with Gyeon, take a look at Mohs EVO, this provides that slickness missing from Pure EVO. It's wipe off window is shorter than Pure EVO, something to be aware of.

Another brand to look at would be Armour Detail Supply, in particular the Quartz Coating. What gets my attention is the high solids content delivers actual real world durability claims, combined with a user-friendly application. It's also slick. Like their wheel coating, the high solids content does tend to harden the applicator quite quickly, so make sure to swap to a fresh one half way.

Did the challenger and it turned out great. Used a water stain remover and a whole car polish and finished it with the Armour Quartz. Liked how the Quartz went on and off better them my Gyeon Pure. Honestly it's a 2015 Car and looks better then brand new

+1 for Ethos (I might’ve already said Ethos previously, getting old sucks 🤭)
