I have been deliberating how to go about getting my polar sea blue mk4 up to scratch. Because i can't wash my car at home i have been using one of those hand car washes where someone des it for you.
A couple of weeks ago afterit had rained i noticed water was staying on my car way after it had dried on other cars. The water was beaded as you would expect, but it took a couple of hours to dry.
I thought it may be because there was no wax on the car, so when i finally decide how to detail te car i went for nxt tech wax by megs, as they claim it to be hypo???? (water fearing).
I have clayed, scratchx'd then 3 coats of nxt tech wax on a couple of panels, and i am confused over a couple of things.
Firstly, when it rained the other day i had the same problem with the water staying on the car for ages, also there was no difference with the beading effect on the panels i had treated and the ones i have not?
Secondly, after i had waxed a panel i looked at the reflections in the paint work. there was a slight rippling effect all over the panel compaired to an uwaxed panel. It was a little like the bubble effect glass you can get for bathrooms etc. it was onle very slight, but i don't know if it is connected to the water problem.
I know this thread may same realy bizzar, but i would be grateful if any one has any advice on the subject.
