    Elton, that Z is probably my favourite detail you've done. It's probably the combination of all the curves and I can only guess Nissan has better paint than Ford, but that car turned out like a black hole. It looks perfect.

    It would be a mixture of Menzerna Sealants, IGL Quartz (Ceramic Coating) and Feynlabs Ceramic Plus (5 Year Ceramic Coating)

    Wow that's amazing!

    Update: SO I didn't really add much to his kit mainly because I was over budget

    He ended up with:
    •6X CarPro 350GSM 16x16 Edgeless Towels
    •Optimum No Rinse (64oz) (I took the other 64oz)
    •2x 5gal bucket with lids
    •Grit guard insert
    •2x spray bottles (one I made a quick detail and the other a Clay lube)

    I put everything in the bucket and my wife added on some ribbons and bows and the final touch I threw a garbage bag over it! Merry Xmas.
    He ended up loving it! I'll make him a small bottle of Menzerna PowerLock. As soon as the bottles with the self cleaning tip are in stock. There still more to get but that can be from his pocket. We be looking into washes so suggestions would be awesome

    Consider adding a car shampoo to that list if you want.
    I'd be happy to throw a sample your way of my product.
    Sorry I didn't see this post until now. If its not too much trouble I wouldn't mind a sample. No rush tho, not much I can do in -23C weather lol.

    Seems like you know this already. Apply thin and apply evenly.



    I have 4x Flex Polishers probably about 150 buffing pads and I still prefer applying by hand, it just allowed me to get into the nooks crannies quickly; See my post I just made about the Winter Prep Package about my process.
    I just went through your winter post.. It's exactly what I want him to be able to do. Straight forward and quick. With this order also I bought myself HDspeed..I'm not sure if I'm just too slow or there too many steps or just out of shape, but it takes me over 14 hours to cut and polish. Not to mention the sweat and aches lol. Don't know how you do it for a living!?

    But MPL (Menzerna PowerLock) is a wicked sealant for sure.
    I have a huge bottle of the stuff. I apply it with the DA but I might try your advice and do it by hand. I usually follow up with a coat of collinite.

    I've been looking at P21s Carnauba Wax and P21s 100%, not liking the prices tho.

    I don't think I'm not ready for Ceramics lol

    Cheers
    Joel,
