can't wait to give it a try, it's good on the metallic paints, right?
Silverstone GTI here..
Post pics....compressed, 56k friendly pics.
where did you buy it? good luck
S100 looks great on metallics
dont forget to use the SEPC or vanilla moose beforehand
s100 alone wont blow you away
Unless you already take care of your paint, but use a different wax like I did.
But SEPC does help kick it up a couple notches
Whats SEPC? Will Vanilla Moose Wax replace it?
I went down to the harley dealership conveniently located 5 min from my house, and got some S100
Plus my car is a demo, so the paint is that of a new car.
SEPC is S100 Shine Enhancing Paint Cleanser, it's a light polish. When you say Vanilla Moose Wax, are you talking about Vanilla Moose or Carnuba Moose Wax?
the car only has 2500 miles on it, it's new.. do i need to use a polish or anything, or just wash+s100.. when should i claybar, polish, etc..?
How does S100 work on black paint, any swirl marks?
Also, just to clarify......the best way for this to work is to 1st obviously wash the car, then polish it w/ SEPC, and then wax it w/ S100 and I will be good to go?
Use a claybar if the paint has a gritty feel to it after you wash it. Even new cars can be like that, especially if they've sat on a dealer's lot for a few months. When they wash the cars on the lot, they use dionized water so they can spray them off and let them air dry. No spots, but any dust, ect that is in the air that settles on the car while it is still wet can get stuck in the paint and you need to use clay to remove it.
As long as you don't have any scratches or swirls that need to be taken care of, then S100 SEC (the light polish) and S100 Paste Wax should be fine.
If you apply S100 with the enclosed foam pad and keep it clean, it will go on and come off swirl free.
Yes, wash, S100 SEC then S100 wax.
Cool, thanks. This doesnt apply to my right now, but Im getting my Z painted Mettallic Black in a couple of months, and now Ill know what products to buy when I detail her.
is S100 SEC necessary on a new car?
Also, don't use swirling motions.....back and forth with the direction of the wind.
