    I wasn't dealing with a car that wasn't well waxed. Previously my car had Poorboys EX-P (synthetic resin sealant) and Blackfire (synthetic polymer sealant). You can see Blackfire loves to bead. I just wanted to see #16. The Blackfire was still slick and after 3 weeks or so, was slicker then the freshly applied #16. Not really an issue since I'm not entering the car into a concours event. The #16 will be very very durable and provide the protection I want, and it gives a really crisp/reflective shine.

    Here's a few pictures I took before applying the #16. Notice darrr beads!!!

    But not after NXT wash and a stream of water. This is a good trick. A final rinse without a nozel will sheet much of the water off. Saves time.

    #16 looks great over lighter colors, very glossy and wet. Nice job!

    It's great in everything but...slickness. Could be better, but since I'm not entering it into a concours event, it'll be great anyway. :)

    edit: I resized them just for you! hahah!

    That wasn't beading up very much... Not sure what the big deal was about the beading.

    I know! I'm unimpressed by Blackfire. I'm going to call them and complain!
