Wasn’t sure if you used it yet or not


Since I don’t drive the SS much, the shit normally lasts over a month on my car if I skip washing it.

I mean... dirt will stick to it if you park like where I have to, but it rinses right off and the gel somehow stays on the tire.


Like I said, it was uncoated, but this is how my wheels look after it rains in my dirt patch yard...

This is what happens when I wash the car on a bright, sunny day without a cloud in the sky....

What soap did you foam with?

I use 2 soaps unless it’s not super dirty.

- Purple power vehicle & boat. Spray on, rinse off, no touching. It strips wax and all kinds of nasty shit.
- Then Meg’s wash & wax, which I usually do a touch wash with, but because there was so much salt I decided not to touch it in case there was any residual salt left.

Then I usually finish it off with Meg’s ultimate fast finish, but even though I didn’t this time around the water was still beading pretty well and it’s been 6~ months since I last applied any

Got around to cleaning the SS since it’s finally fixed.



Directly after washing, while the car was still soaking wet, I sprayed on Megs Ultimate Quik Wax, rubbed it in with a small microfiber, then dried with the water magnet towel. Came out pretty good.


- Gold Class soap
- Ultimate waterless wash/wax under the hood/in the trunk
- Natural shine interior cleaner
- Gold Class 3in1 leather cleaner
- Ultimate all wheel cleaner
- Endurance tire gel
- Ultimate Quik wax for drying










Parked right in front of the door at a convenience store since I don’t trust shit out of my sight.... come out to an older couple talking to each other while staring my car down. They ended up asking me what year it was when I went to get in. They thought it was a 2019

The lens stays clean, it’s the fucking lighting. Cloudy day plus under big ass tree doesn’t equal great phone pics

Oh, and try this. It’s supposed to bead water for a full year.



Idk what I did with my bottle, but it lasted from January to July (when I put it on/last time I polished it). Probably could’ve went longer, but ya know

The first few look fine, the last two have that cloudy smudged lens look

A good photo editor for mobile is photoshop express. I think if you sign into your adobe account it unlocks everything for free too. It does everything as far as image correction goes. You could even out the bright ass sky and shit on the dark stuff a little better if you wanted to, and it’s quick, especially after you learn it which takes no time itself.
