    I know that ONR is usually damn expensive. However I found bought it for 22 dollars shipped off of ebay. This is much cheaper than the 38 dollars some of the online places quote.
    Just wanted to give you guys a heads up. :bigthumb:

    Link? Quart or gallon?

    Considering you can get 128 washes out of a $38 gallon of ONR, it is actually pretty cheap.

    SO I have a question about ONR:
    Do you wet the car down, then use your ONR/water mix and you sponge/towel to wash the panel, then simply dry it, or do you not even have to wet the car down?

    I watched it. I just wasn't sure if you wet it first. I was assuming no

    No Rinse = no rinsing. Before or after. The only time I'd suggest pre-rinsing the car is if you have heavy salt/sand accumulation or went mudding. Otherwise ONR can handle it.

    Cool. Thanks Scott.
    It should be here next week. Can't wait to try it on my car. Sadly my car is so ugly, it's pretty much pointless, but I'm gonna try using it on my friend's Focus.

    2 buckets for what? you really only need one. ONR will suspend any dirt in the solution and doesn't mar.

    :werd: If the car is extra dirty, just change the bucket out halfway through.

    the payoff is nice if you take the time to do it right.

    so you're telling me I only need one bucket? are you guys using grit guards?

    1 bucket. A grit guard isn't absolutely necessary but it does give you some piece of mind.

    So I washed my truck with ONR today. Certainly easier than having to unroll the hose, wet it up, wash it, rinse it, and repeat for super-clean.

    I won't bother posting pictures because my truck is ugly, but I did was my motorcycle with it.

    Just a question: My truck has a lot of scratches on it, not deep enough for my fingernail to catch, so I know they can be buffed out.
    However what do you guys use to buff out scratches?
    And what wax is good for protecting and sealing paint? I want to make sure the paint on my motorcycle stays in great shape.
    Thanks,
    Nick

    Nick-read the detailing EDU and if that doesn't answer your questions, then start a new thread so the information doesn't get lost.

    Okay. I just didn't want to clutter the forum up with different forums with multiple threads.
